Marith Dieker’s research on radio traffic featured on Dutch radio

Marith Dieker’s research project on ‘radio traffic information broadcasts since the 1960s’ recently featured on the Dutch radio station BNR. The short item includes fragments from an interview and several historical audio fragments. While the item is in Dutch, the differences in the form and content of the traffic reports, and their embedding in the radio show, might also be interesting for a non-Dutch audience.

As is mentioned at the end of the accompanying text on the BNR website, Marith is currently looking for participants for her listening-while-driving research project. In particular, she is interested in people (f/m, age 25-60) who drive daily in the Randstad area. Participants will be asked to make sound recordings of their automobile commute during five days. These recordings will subsequently be analysed and discussed with the participant in an interview. A sound recorder can be provided by the researcher.

If you are, or know somebody who might be, interested in participating in this project you/they can contact Marith via her UM email or via
