In this article, the author discusses two broadcast radio events: Concert on Bicycles (1983 - 1984) a program broadcast to an audience of cyclists who participated by riding en masse while listening to portable radios attached to their bicycles; and Talk-Back Piano (1991), an interactive radio broadcast during which members of the radio audience telephoned the radio station and used vocal or other sound to influence a live-to-air improvisation.
