Alan Dunn & John Hyatt – The Ballad of Ray and Julie

A couple of tapes in a shoebox found on the street, it might as well have the point of departure for The Ballad of Ray and Julie. But it was not. Graffitti was, and a brick wall, and an empty space somewhere in town. The story is: something once was, and maybe still is, or could have been, and people were involved. The result is a reconstruction in various forms. There wouldnot have been a result without the involvement of knowledge. “Life is solving problems” said Karl Popper. I forgot…

Dai Coelacanth – Return of the Cosmic Scorpion

Do Dai Coelacanth’s contributions to Radio On evolve into a sci-fi radioplay, a discardable walkman’s alternative to all paytv’s series? Be your own detective. Read his words. Maybe they sound familiar. Susan had joined a show band. I was asked to play trumpet. Not in the band. They wanted me to stand in a shop doorway. They liked my tone. They said it was undecipherable. We had been on the planet for twenty years and had failed to establish ourselves. We were there. We were alive. We were regressing. Susan’s…

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…

Dai Coelacanth – Crude Crayfish vs Cosmic Scorpion

Juan Angel Italiano – Sounds from Uruguay

Juan Angel Italiano lives in Maldonado, Uruguay. Seen from Berlin it is at the other side of the world. The world has many centers. One of those centers could be a simple spool. As Juan Angel puts it: Open reel spools, bought at a street garage sale. Sounds dirty, interspersed. Sermons and locutions of evangelist pastors, tango music, radial advertising. As Discépolo recited in Cambalache: “the Bible next to the heater. You are tuning channel 246, frequency modulated in stereo, Montevideo, Uruguay. There is also a handwritten date that says…

20 March, 20.00-21.30 Rádio Nuda live from Prague

This evening sees another premiere on Radio On. Brutism or bruitism, or simply a new arrangement of the sounds that surround us? Tune in to find an answer to non-existing questions. Your host will be Romano Krzych. In his words: Post-Cage radio show, and ruled by Romano Krzych / O Reche Modo , Rádio Nuda restores the extraordinary and almost sickly musical bloom of our time to what it is: a sound of the world. Rádio Nuda works against collections, catalogs, fetishism – against the devils of the commodity Playlist…

Harold Schellinx – Très Grande Collage

For many years Harold Schellinx has been collecting snippets of tapes that had escaped from their cases for some reason and ended up alone and abandoned. If you listen to the restored tapes you can hear the dirt of the street, and if you try to go a little bit further you might even be able to listen into the past, and visualise it together with all its lost, decayed, disappeared or aged artefacts. Harold says: “ The TGC, the ‘Très Grande Collage’, is a fourteen hour chain of sound…

February -14 hours of found tapes- Harold Schellinx’s Très Grande Collage

During the month of February we transmit Harold Schellinx’s Très Grande Collage. On several days in the months you can tune in to fourteen hours of found tape sounds. Harold has been collecting snippets of tapes that had escaped the cases for some reason and ended up in the gutter, on the pavement, or as Harold says:”distinct magnetic audio tapes, some of them still more or less intact, but most of them reduced to clods, knots and wads, that I picked up from the shoulders of highways, from pavements and…

June Crawford – Garden.95 (A Little Light Goes On)

June Crawford says: Aluminum / Alabaster; Staircase made of plywood, thought I saw you on the street. I had a copy of Corinthians in the car with me. I called out across the lake but it didn’t make it, hit the end and came back to me alone. You looked like you were laughing. The civic rattled on the highway all the way home, wasn’t made for this winter and it’s showing. Crack in the windshield’s growing all the time. Emptied the bank for rent today, I don’t know how…
