The Wire is an multi award winning Canadian Broadcasting Corporation series looking at the impact of electricity on music. It incorporates interviews, music and sound in an innovative way, creating a unique radio experience that's somewhere between a documentary, a remix and a music show.
Using resonators, horn attachments, new strings and new materials, people had always been trying to make the quiet and humble guitar louder. Electricity finally did the trick. From early jazz to the age of the rock-star, each new innovation expanded the electric guitar's world of sound and cemented its status as one of the iconic symbols of the 20th century. (CBC)
