24 hour radio race

For one day in August, producers from across the globe grabbed their mics and jumped into action for KCRW’s first annual 24-Hour Radio Race.

At 10am on the 17th August, radio producers were emailed a theme and given just 24 hours to write, record and edit a non-fiction radio story lasting no longer than six minutes. KCRW received over a hundred entries inspired by the theme, “the last thing you’d expect” and in the process, proof that some of the best work can be created in the shortest timeframe.

Tic Talk, the story of 9-year old Spencer, produced by British entrant Cristina Parry was chosen as the winner.
