The Library by soundpocket calls for photographs Series 3: The Radio
聲音圖書館徵相啟事 III – 收音機篇

pictorial 3 600

On 6th October, at 10 o’clock in the morning at Harcourt Road, a woman stood under the bridge, holding a radio to spread the news broadcast.  In the photographic moment of silence, can  you hear the people’s voice?

In a rapidly developing technological era, people are no longer surprised by a tiny box capable of detecting radio signals from a distance. In the 1950s, development in the semiconductor technology contributed to the popularity of the radio. It also accelerated information exchange, and inspired the innovation of television and telephone. Today, smartphones with built-in radio function further limit the use of the radio as a stand-alone object. In the future, the radio may no longer exist, or may exist in another form.

Have you ever had a radio?
Radio is your bedside hypnotist?
Do you keep the radio you used for public examination?
Have you ever recorded your favorite songs from the radio?
Is there a novel calls “Novel in the Air”?
Is there a car with no man driving?
What is the song played by uncle’s pocket radio?
Do you have a story about you and the radio?
Please share your story with us!

在這個科技高速發展的世代,人們似乎不再為一個接收到遠方信號的小盒子而感到驚奇。50年代,半導體的技術進步催化了收音機的普及 ; 加快了訊息傳遞與交流之餘,更啟蒙了電視、電話的科技發展。今天智能手機的出現大大收窄了實體收音機的生存空間。在未來,收音機也許會以另一種形式出現,又或者不再存在。
