*New podcast: Hank Bull on Boredom, the HP Dinner Show and radio art*
*Hank Bull: "Boredom is a subversive exposé of the charade of the
simulacrum of entertainment and the false nature of information"*
'The HP Dinner Show' was a weekly radio show broadcast on Vancouver
Cooperative Radio from 1975 to 1983. A mix of experimental radio, a
platform for sarcasm, and a hangout for the local scene, the project by
Hank Bull and Patrick Ready operated under the premise that the radio
medium could and should fall within our notion of art. With a personal
style packed with humour and a far cry from the mannerisms of European
radio art, the show earned its place as a small underground phenomenon in
the Vancouver area.
In this programme, Hank Bull takes the idea of boredom as a springboard to
fire off some interesting ideas about entertainment and archives.
