Anders Östberg – The Stars are Beautiful

Anders Östberg reaches out to the stars. He can see a lot of them in his hometown somewhere in Sweden. The music might be defined ambient. But there is also a time before ambient music. And that’s where some of the pieces come from. From somewhere in space, or at least from a place that could be defined as such. You will hear sounds for space travels, and for lounge parties in space ships. You will hear music that was avant-garde many eons ago, and you will hear sounds to…

The Tape Review Show – vinyl edition with Shangorilla Records

The show opens with an in-depth interview. How will Brexit affect one of our station masters? Is this the end of Radio On? Will Adrian S. be put on a train to Poland? We muse over capital punishments, the beheading of David Cameron, french boeuf in Great Britain, the end of the internet, round rooms, dreams. We play tracks from the albums that were generously sent to us by Shangorilla Records. We describe and discuss the albums. And so much more, of course. You want to submit your works or…

Don Campau – The Echolocation of Eternity

Don Campau, look him up here.  Tune in to his radio show if you happen to be on a road trip in California. Stay with us for his more archive oriented shows. For this show Don has dug up mainly seven inches: singles. Energetic, joyful, liberating, incredible. The rich history of the current underground culture, unnoticed by the main media, unnoticed by the main record companies, unnoticed by all those bright people who dump their beautiful blue consumer pearls into your life. Who cares? The plastic future is here. Now…

Don Campau – Museum Pieces

Don Campau is with Radio On for only a brief moment in his career. But I can’t remember when he did his first show for us. His choice had always been from his vast collection of cassettes. In his shows you could listen to sounds from the 1970s up to the now. One day Don cleared his garage and sent all the cassettes to Zeppelin City in Germany. This was not the end of the world. Don took us on a journey to the past and programmed some shows he…

Adrian Shephard – Scratched Vinyl Show (Don’t Bring Harry)

Mankind created cities. Mankind created communication systems, railways, stations. Molecules got together and created life. One thing connected to something else, and it resulted in endless possibilities. The universe expands and so does the dictionary. How does this work in a brain. How does the brain activate thoughts. What connects one image with the other and makes us tell a story. Question1. Is the central station in Berlin, with the tracks, the platforms, the different levels, the automatic stairs, the trains that come in and leave, people coming and going,…

Anders Östberg – Down to my very last tear : : Part 2: The sun went away

Every seven months Anders Östberg sends in a one hour mix of songs and sounds taken from his vast collection of singles and lp’s. He started in April 2014. Each show has a different theme. This time he decided to compile a follow up to his garageband obscurities. Each heart can be broken an infinite amount of times and the sea of tears will never dry up. Don’t put your head between your knees, stand up and celebrate your misery. Rejoice. Dance. Anders simply says: “Second installment in my series….

Adrian Shephard: The Scratched Vinyl Show – The Xmas Edition
