Radio Ephemera - John Biewen "Scared"

Here's a link to the Radio Ephemera Contest put on by the Third Coast Int'l Audio Festival. Submissions had to be inspired by 2 of 5 books offered by Third Coast, and include the voice of a stranger. This might be a helpful place for some of you to get guidance about structure and content of an experimental piece...

There are 72 submissions posted on the site. I want to point out #55, "Scared" by John Biewen. I took a class with John in August at CDS in North Carolina and first heard it there. It reminds me a little bit of Tony Schwartz' piece "Nancy Grows Up" in that it puts together sound collected over a long span on time.
