radio uncertainty


experimental community radio station
Provincetown, Massachusetts

When you scroll through the FM dial and hear the sounds of ocean waves and whale songs blending with the crackle of radio static, you know the program is about to begin. Radio uncertainty might change its name and pronouns daily, without a set airtime.
