BIKE LIFE Radio, a show on KWNK where we talk to people about their bikes and lives. In this month’s episode of Bike Life Radio, we explore the phenomenon of the bicycle as a musical instrument is real and has been growing over the past 150 years. As funny as it sounds, it kind of makes sense. The bicycle is full of rhythmic noises from the chain and derailleurs to squeaky beaks. Recent advances in microphones, batteries, and wiring have combined with people’s desire to tinker with the bike, making the bicycle a musical instrument. This pop culture phenomenon is leading musical renegades. Today’s show is dedicated entirely to the bicycle AS a musical ensemble featuring interviews with Frank Zappa and Jennifer Murphy.
