forthcoming on ResonanceFM GRIME NUMBERS edited by autodespair. it’s a great, dense edit of numbers being announced on pirate radio. most of the stations are playing grime. in case you don’t know, when a listener wants to give appreciation to a tune or a vocal they’ll send a missed call to the studio phone, the host then reads out the last three digits of their number. grime numbers has these, the various studio numbers, the station’s frequency and even lyrics which use numbers (wiley on the 38 bus).

a few years ago, Kode9 did a similar piece which just concentrated on those last three digits of callers’ numbers. it came on a cd published with a great experimental radio book called ‘radio territories’. there’s a review of the book here.
