Radio 101 was an exhibition and FM radio station broadcasting from our former Gallery on Bedford High Street.

The show related to the R101 airship built at Cardington in the 1920s and it’s illfaited maiden voyage to Karachi. The journey finished in disaster as the R101 came down at Allonne near Beauvais outside Paris on Saturday 4th Oct 1930, after a flight of just 7.5 hours. Of the 54 on board only six survived. The episode was a national tragedy and symbolised the end of empire, it also stirred up many stories of supernatural activity.

The radio station marked the anniversary of the flight broadcasting for the seven and a half hours of its flight. Artists who made work for the radio station include Alejandra & Aeron, Dinah Bird, Barry Burns, Matt Cook, INS, Kaffe Matthews, Dan Norton, Scanner & Mark Vernon.
