Live Show – 13 January, 20.00 Berlin Time

On the evening of the 13th of January 2019 the first live show of the year will see a special edition of The Tape Review Show. Shephard and Van Alebeek will open a packet sent from Moscow.

The Tape Review Show – Knife in the Toaster, Falt, Plaza Zachodnia

A special show, this one. Adrian welcomes visitors from the Moors, a sinister place somewhere in England, where hounds howl and people disappear in the fog to never come back again. A land of opened graves and haunted houses, a place to grow up and have a happy childhood. Those stories make up one part of the show. But there is also Bus 100 in Berlin, the Brandenburger Tor rebuilt by an army of legoman. We mention the war, Germania, have etymological discussions and play and discuss some tapes that…

That’s the point where you need to take care. Listen in full and you will travel to the past. It happened to us. The radio studio became a space ship with Adrian as the pilot and me (= Rinus) as the navigator. Agatha Christie came to visit us. We heard stories about Elvis. We bumped and leaped though different layers…

Radio On Neanderthal Love

This was supposed to be a Tape Review Show, and actually one or two tapes were played, but the show turned into a giant rant, mainly by Rinus against self-righteous behaviour on social media.
