Bomb Shelter Radio travels throughout the United States creating temporary radio stations broadcasting through FM airwaves and the internet.

Artist Josh Short will be broadcasting live inside the Crosstown Concourse Central Atrium from his mobile radio unit, which goes by the name Lucille Valentine, on Tuesdays-Fridays from Sept. 22-Oct. 16. Josh will be broadcasting on Tuesday, Oct. 3 from 8:30-10 pm and again on Wednesday, Oct. 4 from noon-1 pm (featuring representatives from the Stax Museum).

Josh creates sonic landscapes, infusing the airwaves with the sounds of old rock ‘n’ roll and soul music mixed with familiar voices drawn from monster movies and vintage news reels. His various alter-ego DJ personas — the Grandma Badger, Big Daddy Bodang, Captain T Bone Short, and the DJ Catfish Fry — guide the listeners through a nightly existential road map drawn from the “American Experience Mythos.”

Broadcasts are open to the public, so don’t be afraid to pay the Lucille Valentine a visit. Josh might even put you on the air!
