31.May 2018 at 21.00 Berlin Time – The Nikolas Schreck Show with the author Simon Wells

A new show by Nikolas Schreck, best to be described and announced in his own words. One side note on Simon Wells. It is not this Simon, that Nikolas has talked to, though it might have been interesting to hear Schreck on Schrek. The author Simon Wells, who you will hear in the interview, is hard to find. His books, however, are one click away. Word to Nikolas, “Tune in, Turn on and Drop Out to The Nikolas Schreck Show as we take you on a time travel trip to swinging…

Zine-ism, Interview with Nina Prader and John Z Komurki

  Nina Prader runs Lady Liberty Press. John Z Komurki, among other things, has written a book, called Stationery Fever. Both, now residents of Berlin, care for printed matter and a lot of things that come with it. You think it is boring to talk about pencils? Wait until you hear John bring in stories about John Steinbeck, Napoleon and Freud. And after the pencils are sharpened, the conversation takes us to the zine. Who, why, why not, where, what and what else. Digital versus analogue. The tactile and the…

Interview with Fillipp Vingerhoets

Fillipp Vingerhoets is one of the persons involved with Bohemian Drips. That’s the first thing you will hear in the interview that Adrian Shephard and Rinus Van Alebeek conducted with the young Bavarian. A needle injecting a bonbon with strange drops, tiled secret bunkers, playing undanceable music to danceable people, Berlin in the middle of the night, sounds in space or sounds in castles, Turks on the run and alarming goat stories. It is all in this two hour interview. Plus more. Tracks are played from the vinyl that Fillipp…

LIVE SHOW: 24.March 21:00hrs Berlin Time – Interview with Fillipp Vingerhoets

Saturday 24. March we receive Fillipp Vingerhoets at our studio. Fillipp is part of the artist collective Bohemian Drips. Fillipp will talk about various activities set up by the collective, such as the Speicher Festival set in the Wasserspeicher (Water Tower) in the Prenzlauer Berg district. Bohemian Drips is also a record label. We will listen and talk about the tracks and artists. But we might talk about so many things more, and while doing so give you a small impression of life in Berlin.    

Rinus Van Alebeek – Letter from Berlin

I have moved back to Berlin in the month of February 2018. The audio reports that I started in Poland will continue, albeit in a different form. I will still use my Sony walkman, walk and talk, observe, think aloud and allow snippets of every day life to land on the surface of the magnetic tape. In the second letter from Berlin I visit the staalplaat shop. Fillipp Vingerhoets presented a new album released by Bohemian Drips. I asked Mr Inox Kapell to tell a bit more about the album…

Brainhall Art Productions presents Alan Courtis

Andreas Glauser has been producing shows for Radio On since some years now. His Brainhall Art Productions have introduced us to a wide variety of artists via interviews, field recording projects, historic concert recordings, introductions to audio-zines, conceptual CDs. Listening to his shows is like entering a space where sounds and words buzz around your head like flies. In this show we hear Alan Courtis (wikiCourtis). He talks about his art, and plays examples of his latest releases for invisible city records and coherent states. Funny enough the names of…

Rinus Van Alebeek – Four Days in Paris

As part of a four day residency at La Générale in Paris I made an audio report. I used a handheld cassette walkman to record events as they unfolded. Observations and thoughts mingle with the background noises of the streets I walked. The building of La Générale is a central point of the recordings. It features through its acoustics, my descriptions, the sound events and an interview with Emmanuel Rébus. Emmanuel talks about the history and specific qualities of the building and about past, present and future of the art…

The Wirebender presents a show in three parts: Gt Moore, David Harrow and Little Roy

A new show from our man in London, Simon Wade. Interviews, live sessions, electronic dub and a fine new release are the key features of this three part show.   In Simon’s words Gt Moores “Utopia” vinyl cut on the Jah Works label is one of my dj staple tracks, always in my box. As it always stood apart? Only recently I understand why, as it has one foot in the English folk scene and another in the roots reggae scene of the 1970’s jamaican dub scene. Nearly 40 years…

Around the World with Alexei Borisov

Alexei came for a surprise visit to our studio. After initial talks about the weather in Moscow and orthodox New Year celebrations, he dives in his bag and gets out a big handful of CDs and tapes. Alexei introduces new and older tracks and talks about his collaborative moments with Katya Rekk, Sergey Kostyrko, KK Null, Jelena Glazova, Olga Nosova (Astma), Bob Meanza which bring memories of tours in Iceland and Japan and Berlin venues. The show is hosted by Adrian Shephard. And did Adrian have the right intuition? Is…
