Wavelength – “Wynnonia”

Today’s programme plunders the distinguished career of John Wynne, presenter of Up Country, and sound artist, otherwise known as Mr Speaker after his 300 speaker installation at the Saatchi Gallery, the recording of which is ruthlessly superimposed over the original soundtrack from The Big Country; John’s theme tune, cassette stuff from Material/Immaterial (1989), taking in Canadian Inuit music recorded in a Quebec hospital as well as other “Wynnonia” including early Stanley Brothers and Captain Richard Jonas.
