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.

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…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show #30 – Resistance is never Futile

LL starts the show playing lullaby’s. The unprepared listener may think that LL wants to close his eyes and shut himself off from the world. Everyone seems to go crazy; and everyone needs to shout louder louder loudest. The unprepared listener may think that LL is setting off for a daydream. But this is not the case. We hear music by people who don’t have any second thought. They make music because they feel like it. And they make the songs you hear, because there is no-one to tell them…

Don Campau presents a Lord Litter Special

Two of our program makers Don Campau in Santa Rosa, California and Lord Litter in Wilmersdorf, Berlin are long time friends. They got in touch when parcels with audio cassettes were crossing the ocean by the thousands. Some of those parcels had their tapes in it. Read about the movement from which originated the cassette culture in Don’s ongrowing Archive. He writes about Lord Litter in this article Lord Litter ( aka Jorg Dittmar) was (and is) simply one of the most valuable and essential members of the underground music…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – The Story of Bollerman

Lord Litter says it in the introduction of the show. “In the beginning of the 1980s while everyone in Berlin played punk or electro,  Bollerman played everything that came along.” And goes on to tell and show that Bollerman were one of the most underestimated bands around. Berlin bands like Einstürzende Neubauten or Die Tödliche Doris were very much more visible and remembered until today. They represented one aspect of Berlin that is easier to understand for non-Berliners like me. But the world of the Eckkneipe, the so-called Berliner ‘Schnautze’…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – The dark days are almost Gone

An introspective show by LL, this one, maybe inspired by a couple of long and calm songs. It adds an almost lost feeling of silent boredom. This is not a dismissive observation. In the twentieth century, during the days before the second coming of the internet, boredom added to the feeling of being rooted in a time. It gave way to a sense of nothingness, of a very sweet nothingness. And it had nothing to do with the loudmouthed nihilism we experience today. COUNTERCULTURE 2016……… 1. Trio Beau Soir –…
