Alternate Soundtrack City Tours
Starting in January 2007, Neighborhood Public Radio (NPR) invites local, national and international artists to develop audio tours of San Francisco regardless of the individuals’ familiarity with the city or the route in question. The resulting audio segments are tuned to broadcast on the same frequency and aim to reconstruct the city based on the imagination of the producers. The audio tour inspires people to re-imagine familiar surroundings through the development of alternative descriptions of those surroundings. City Tours is led by NPR member and lead artist Lee Montgomery and will broadcast monthly from January through June 2007. For more information about City Tours visit www.neighborhoodpublicradio.org/.
