After “Freie Radio Freistadt”, the local radio station in Freistadt, Upper Austria, broadcasted a concert of Ensemble Castor in May, the Gerstlhaus followed the invitation for being presented within the radio broadcast of “Mühlviertler Museumstraße”. In the morning of October 7th, we proceeded to Freistadt and, after a short introduction, we went live. Wilhelm Hochreiter acted as the host of the broadcast series. It was a real pleasure to us and we had great fun with it. We look forward to coming back!
In 2008, as part of a scholarship for outstanding pupils, school children of the secondary school HS Reichenthal created a radio report about the Gerstlhaus museum. This project was coordinated by senior teacher Gabriele Latzko, who designed texts, that were recorded in the museum with additional music and sounds.
The project was implemented by Hildegard Griebl-Shehata, manager of the radio division at Medienwerkstatt Linz and published on July 1st 2008. The broadcast received an honorary certificate by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Eduaction, Science and Research for reaching the final at the Media Literacy Award 2008.
