It’s really kind of a magical thing when you think about it. Right now, in the air, well below the spectrum of visible light, there are waves  vibrating around carrying sound through the air. It’s how the things we say in the studios here at WGBH make their way to the radio in your car or your house.

But for as amazing as that is (and it really is), the real magic of radio is, I think, in the connections we make with what we hear: The music, the DJ, the host—whether it be Howard Stern or Ira Glass. It’s those personal connections with otherwise lifeless waves floating through the air that is the inspiration behind dancer/choreographer Kyle Abraham’s work “ The Radio Show.” Abraham stopped by the BPR studios ahead of the November 16 Boston premiere of his award winning work at the ICA,  presented by World Music/CRASH Arts.
