New event series “Ein Abend im Hörfeld” celebrated premiere

May 19, 2022

Named after Radio Radieschen’s feature format – Hörfeld – the editorial team of our educational station launched a new event series on May 11th, 2022: “Ein Abend im Hörfeld”. As the first guest, ORF journalist Jürgen Pettinger presented his award-winning Ö1 feature “Mit einem Warmen kein Pardon. The case of Franz Dom”.

Mutual exchange about Austrian audio productions

For the event, ballroom C517 in the C wing of FHWien of WKW was transformed into a cosy feel-good ambience with sofas. After the welcome and introductory words by Caroline Schranz, Johanna Hirzberger and Carolin Schmid, around 20 guests listened to the feature “Mit einem Warmen kein Pardon. The case of Franz Dom”.

Based on original investigation and court files of Franz Doms, who was murdered by the Nazi regime, listeners were immersed in the everyday life and persecution of homosexual people in National Socialist Vienna. In his feature, Pettinger also questions his own acceptance as a homosexual man in today’s society.

Afterwards, the discussion process started based on various previously suggested categories. These included sound design, use of music, rhythm, levels and much more. Among other things, Pettinger gave information about his approach, the genesis, the idea, the realisation and why the fate of Franz Doms was so close to him.

“Ein Abend im Hörfeld” was created to give audio creators a space to exchange ideas, learn from each other and simply to give great productions a place to be heard and celebrated.

Radio Radieschen …

is the only educational station with a terrestrial frequency in Vienna and also broadcasts in Vienna, Lower Austria, parts of Styria and Burgenland via DAB+. At the training station, students of “Journalism and Media Management” learn how to do radio in theory and practice. The results can be heard in the programmes Kulturcollage, Tonwerkstatt and Radiolab. Students with appropriate previous experience can also produce their own programmes and broadcast them live or recorded. One example is Femality – the feminist radio magazine (every Wednesday from 8 pm)! More information at
