Dai Coelacanth – Mackeral’s cryptic cup lung

Dai’s words: One day I will steal your cup. The Colonel’s thoughts stuck to his balding head. He had to brush them off with a transceiver. I AM NOT ALONE. I AM NOT ALONE. He was alone in aisle 13 his basket full of freshly minted cassettes. Sensors in the wall detected a slight disturbance an aroma that didn’t match his profile. In the Control Booth Nancy gleefully rubbed the spectral analysis and spat on the floor. Mortuary Zero-Zero did her best to keep herself out of the news but…

Dai Coelacanth – Pure Country Magic

“Are you just going round and round. There are better ways to travel. The captain struggled with his boots they were never happy. Ironic. As a boy they called him ‘lucky feet’. She was singing in town. Had a nice set of irregular talons. Nearly tore my face off. I had to stop the flow of blood with dirty leaves. Made me look like a tree creature. People pushed coins into my pocket. They didn’t think I would notice. I’m allergic to metal. It makes me sprout. March is a…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – Semiotics

The playlist below is a disguise for a magazine, such one as only the internet can produce, with sounds, images and words. Hypertext? Umberto Eco! “So how do I make sense of the mess? I try to learn some basic labels. But there are problems here too: if I click on a URL that ends with .indiana.edu I think, Ah – this must have something to do with the University of Indiana. Like hell…

The Scratched Vinyl Show #12 – ‘I remember his tail and more tales …’

Adrian Shephard, one of the founding fathers of Radio On, lives not far from a flea market. With first sunny days to hit Berlin, the sellers come out again and set up their stalls. This is the sign that springtime has arrived, but it is also the moment that the scratched vinyl show awakes from its hibernation. Adrian returns from the market with a bag full of old records. And as Mussorgsky used to say, every record tells a story. This is what the scratched vinyl show is all about….
