Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – Welcome to the Lord Litter Café

Where-in Lord Litter virtually reconstructs a bar in Berlin. It’s a place where people talk more and smoke less. There is no wi-fi signal, and the clients are encouraged to leave the smart phones and tablets at home. Old friends talk about old times, and when the new times press their noses against the window, also the spleen of today gets discussed over a glass of beer. The music that sounds over the thirty year old loudspeakers is produced in a garage or in a small home studio. No majors…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – The Don Campau Special 2

Lord Litter’s second part of the special on Don Campau leads us from the years of punk to the years of, yes what..transition? Our LL has selected songs that point out the skills of Don as a guitar player, but also as a lyricist. Starting in the early 1980s the compositions still follow the different genre’s of that time, but once the cassettes started to fill the postbox, Don Campau gives way to more experiments. I especially like the “complex” compositions that bear traces of the American musical, that, in…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – Don Campau special, part1

Don’s own words about the beginning of his career:”at the time I lived near this old road in San Jose where the train ran parallel. The train sounded a lot like the autochord sound on Greg’s Yamaha keyboard. There was magic in this simplicity and the fact that anything seemed possible.” The first part of LL’s special on Don Campau offers everything that a lover of Americana can wish for. It becomes a road movie, not showing you the geographical landscape, but various aspects of a cutural landscape as it…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – Driving late at Night

A show to take with you when you set out for a long night’s travel. Big roads going up and donw, long curves, the silhouettes of pine trees, and the flickering lights of a village far away. It is a coll night after a hot summer day. Alone in your car, comfortable, you are allowed to smoke a cigarette. A shot of coffee at the gas station, smell of petrol, mosquito’s playing around the neon lights above the entrance. Back in the car, still some long hours to go to…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show #34 – Reading out Loud

Lord Litter is happy. The weather is fine. The music is good. He listens. He listens to the words and hears something about the town he lives in. He hears about changes. He reads out loud those words. It is a postcard. Silence burns a hole in the show. Use it to take a look inside. 1. Felidae – No right to remain silent – CD – Baby Someday 2. LL reading the lyrics of *At The Backyard (Berlin Edit)* 3. Felidae – At The Backyard (Berlin Edit) – digitalsingle…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – Special Presentations

Lord Litter is one of our two DJ’s who make a kind of traditional form radio show: he talks about the artist, gives some information, and plays the song. But this is also Radio On. And overhere we like it when things make sense. Our radio is not about fast thougts-easy comments. That’s why we are very pleased to have LL with us. You might not hear it immediately, but he has a message to bring across. Here’s one example. Word to LL: “A bit of hope: The worst case…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show -“Es ist Deutschland hier”

Lord Litter starts his tour high in the mountains of Bavaria, in a rustic landscape where cows say Möh and people say nothing until they pick up their instruments and sing. It is not far to Alvaro’s homebase. Watch him sharpen his knife. On we go to the outskirts of Germany, where Fraukes and Pepita’s wear different dresses, and even manage to act friendly to visitors. Find them Lala-ing in the streets and sing the alphabet. Juggle your own Deutschland with those characters…and aaaah, if only Guido would still have…
