Dai Coelacanth – RANDOM SEWAGE FROM A STRANGERS WIFE / YOU’RE A WIG, Mr MALIGNANT

Dai Coelacanth arrived a year ago. He had been on a holiday in Greece. It started then. Thinking while listening. Something happened. A man who was there when Mr. Sony sent his walkman to earth. They fell on every shop and in every home like children’s balloons who had gone the reverse way. He still has a walkman. Other people have a smart phone. Both walk the streets and talk freely into a microphone. Both transmit messages. Dai makes cassette walkman art. And I wonder if he is the only…

Don Campau – Museum Pieces

Don Campau is with Radio On for only a brief moment in his career. But I can’t remember when he did his first show for us. His choice had always been from his vast collection of cassettes. In his shows you could listen to sounds from the 1970s up to the now. One day Don cleared his garage and sent all the cassettes to Zeppelin City in Germany. This was not the end of the world. Don took us on a journey to the past and programmed some shows he…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – Patterns

Look here, a show that speaks for itself. It starts with songs by a band that was sensational in the early years of youth culture. Nowadays you can wonder how the songs would come out of the vaporwave machine. Strange enough, or maybe not strange at all, LL has found a way to level the classics to all the other home-produced sounds he has brought to us all over the years. But have a look at the playlist. This is radio. What else. Classic Cassette Compilation 1. 48 Cameras –…

Au Pays Des Merveilles #24 – Time Destroy Everything

Unknown territory. Electronic language. Define the obsolete. Outside history. Topography of Sound. Explore. Intuition. Au Pays des Merveilles is an itinerant Radio Show and could be considered as Nurdin’s personal barometer, a sonic report of his encounters during his travels and tours. The shows, therefore, offer also an insight in the various off-institutional DIY-scenes and the current state of audio/radio experimentations. Recorded on July 30th, 2018 / August 06th / August 13th / August 20th and September 03th, at RoHS Studio 2018 (fr-54), in french territory. De-rushing / Composing on…

The Scratched Vinyl Show #11 – Bowie and Mim King in Berlin

Adrian Shephard’s scratched vinyl shows combine memories and storytelling with tracks played from records found during the after-hours of flea markets. In this special edition of the SVS, Adrian has Mim King as a guest. Mim was and still is a huge fan of David Bowie. She choses tracks from the Christiane F soundtrack album, reads from the book Bowie in Berlin, and takes us on a dazzling tour of London in the 1970s and Berlin in 1979 and 1980. Follow Mim to Top of the Pops, K West studio’s,…

Radio On Beuys

On the dustiest shelf of the Radio On archives there are even recordings from shows that probably no-one heard. They are from the pre-history of our radio when Shephard and Van Alebeek first met somewhere in the hinterlands of East Berlin. Back then they still played music, but luckily after hardly one minute the tracks get interrupted by their stream of unconscious talking. Musicologist discussions, ponderings on heroin and an old evergreen determine the first half of the show. At the center there is a long series of questions about…

Radio On Parachutes

This show comes from the deep archives of Radio On. It dates back from the time that we were a nomadic radio station. You will hear mention of cannibal caniche, a web radio based in Paris that hosted us on a couple of occasions. You will here a vintage Shephard/Van Alebeek talking about parachutes, hair, flowers, seeds, punk, the future, and, and, and. The talks, dialogues, lectures melt into short stories, become radiophonic pieces and go back to ordinary topics again. You want to submit your works or tapes/CDs/Vinyls released…
