A series exploring the politics of urban sound in Bangkok and beyond, through first-person reporting, field recordings, and analysis. In this episode, we hit the streets to find out what people in Bangkok are listening to and why. As migration from the countryside has enlarged the capital and changed its population, so has the radio been transformed. Today, radio is at the core of how Bangkok residents define themselves; you can tune into the explosion of identities simply by spending a few hours scanning stations, dialing through global teen pop, rural ballads, and Thai country music.
