Curated By: Foteini Aravani

Need to know is the work of the month March.

A radio play that aired on WBAI in New York in 1978, Need to Know is a sound structure. With allusions to Sam Cooke and the socio-political upheaval of the era, this multi-voiced “Experimental Theatre of the Air” is alternately playful and, as promised by its title, urgently imperative. Radio play, WBAI, New York City. Production: James Umland, Moved Pictures. Voices: Peter Gordon, Britta LeVa, Michael H. Shamberg, Leslie Schiff, Ann-Sargent Wooster, James Umland, Juliet Weber, Lawrence Weiner. Music: Peter Gordon. Mix: Paul Wunder/Lawrence Weiner. First Presentation: WBAI 99.5 FM, New York City, January 29, 1978. Sunday afternoon, 2:30 PM. Cassette published 1984.
