The Wirebender presents Junior Dan – Interview and new album

The new The Wirebender show with an interview and tracks is an excursion into the warm world of Junior Dan, best explained in Simon Wade’s words: part 1 “Wise up rise up from your slumber, it is time to make a stand, Wise up rise up from your slumber, are we building bridges to nowhere? This world is in confusion too many living with delusions, not knowing which way to turn. We make such rash decision are we building bridges to nowhere? Is this all a big mistake? No money…

Junie Crawford – Transmission 5, Nancy

Another intimist portrait of life in the early stages of the 21st century somewhere in the northern parts of the Americas by our collaborator Junie Crawford. The episode links the oral tradition of the firm twentieth century with the emotional prospects to which the new century opens. Ideas are still amorphous and plans are in an intuitive phase. The future is as wide as the landscape, and meanwhile the guitar does its thinking.   In the words of Junie Crawford: “Nancy Sue Goldberg (neé Pair) was a nurse from Alabama….

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – Dans La Rue

People working in the street, a new gaspipe, a van parked, doors open, loud techno for everyone. What a relieve to put on my headphones and listen to the new Lord Litter show. Songs in every gradation, introverted, nostalgic, fun, loud, weird and a nice interview over a cup of tea to round it off. You don’t find people working in your street everyday of course, but if you’d like to take a holiday from your daily environment then this show is the place to go.   1. The NoMen…

Isn’t everything poetry? Readings with Ken Shakin, Robert Stastny, Ida Loggert and many anonymous others

The Curious Fox Book shop on the Flughafenstrasse in Berlin presents regular poetry evenings. Before the break invited poets read their poems, after the break poets in the audience, mostly announced by their first name step up, and cheered by the audience, read their short serious, intimate or hilarious poetry. I don’t know how the evenings would evolve if Guinness were consumed by the gallons. You can hear from the reactions that everyone has a very good time, and that the readings, organised by David Gordon, are a welcome contribution…
