Samantha Cavestani is originally from Los Angeles and is a junior at Gallatin. Samantha is studying different mediums and expressions of storytelling, radio being one of these mediums. She loves stories and sounds and thinks that there is a great power in the human voice. People have a lot to say, and she, for the most part, wants to listen!
There is an intimacy that comes with radio—listening to a voice and not seeing where that voice is coming from. I wanted to recreate this intimacy while talking to my dad and his friends about the art scene in 1960s New York City and what it was like living at the Chelsea Hotel.
