Seán Street is Emeritus Professor of Radio in the Faculty of Media & Communication at Bournemouth University. He founded the MA in Radio Production in 1999. As part of his design for the degree, he established the Bournemouth Internet Radio Station (BIRSt), a unique teaching and assessment tool featuring student work as live-stream and audio on demand. His work is informed by his extensive ongoing experience as a writer, poet and broadcaster, and his regular appearances on the BBC’s main networks, particularly Radios 3 and 4 ensures that students benefit from his knowledge of current industry practise.
In 2015, Seán published two new books, The Historical Dictionary of British Radio, 2nd Edition, and The Memory of Sound – Preserving the Sonic Past. The latter is a sequel to his previous text on radio and sound, The Poetry of Radio – The Colour of Sound. A paperback edition of this was published in June 2013. His eighth poetry collection, Cello, was also published in 2013. A number of leading international literary journals continue to publish new poems by Seán, and he has appeared in many radio and television programmes, discussing the history and aesthetics of radio and sound
