"Definitely not the radio I remember."

They make fun of people, they curse, they play this "rock and roll," they smoke God knows what -- and they all need hair cuts. When was the last time they actually had jobs? When I was young, I chopped wood to stay warm. These kids seem to think running their mouths will put food on the table. The only thing I'd put on their tables is a generous portion of shut-the-fuck-up. - Finneus Finkelbottom, The Grandpa's Journal

"Yet Another TLA"

We Had Voices brings yet another three letter acronym to the world of radio. This American Life, NPR, PRI, All Things Considered, and Prairie Home Companion: say hello to your new little friend. These are a bunch of kids who are having a hell of a time doing something they have no clue how to pull off -- and the audience is in for the same exhilarating ride. They push the arguably dead radio form in ways that will make your grandma blush, assuming she's still alive.
- Margot Lane, Fork & Knife Review


Our final podcast for the first session is available at wehadvoices.podbean.com. Clips from the show are available under Audio.



We Had Voices debuted in March, 2007 to a crowd that hadn't quite realized that video killed the radio star a long time ago. What WHV brought back to life was a Prairie Home Frankenstein creature with a flair for making bad puns and cannibalism funny. WHV is cementing their style, eight feet tall, and has strange sprockets sprouting from their necks.

Their first performance was a labor of clandestine love -- the result of a half year of collecting material and throwing it in front of appreciative sold out downtown audiences. WHV is stepping up the pace and producing a quarterly session with continuing storylines and exciting new musical talent. They bring New York's most innovative artists into a single room, and then step back and take cover as things get hot.
