The Scratched Vinyl Show #5 – A tribute to Saulius Čemolonskas

All the records for this show were found on a flea market on the same day as the program was recorded. And so it begins …May 2001.. A friend of Adrian, Saulius was employed as a catholic priest for a testcard performance installation ‘inside’ a Lewes Church as a graveyard for computers using early pattern recognition s/w (big eye from Steim). The audience were literally invited to destroy the computer graves with hammers. Babies crawled on a floor of smashed monitor screens and a big cross made out of TVs…

Alan Dunn – The Sounds of Ideas forming, volume 5: Super 8

A long time ago a movie called Peeping Tom put an end to the career of one of the best film directors Great Britain had ever seen. Michael Powell was killed by his critics. And so it goes. Alan Dunn’s Super 8 can be regarded as grandson of peeping Tom, much friendlier, but still with its creepy side. His composition works like a camera focussing on parts of furniture. Sometimes it recogizes something, sometimes it is just blurr. After a while you start noticing that something’s not right. It seems…

Anders Östberg – Golden hued antique musical lithographs. A whimsical journey to Toytown. Music from my collection.

Anders Östberg is with Radio On since April 2014. Every seven months he sends a new show. Each show is built around a theme. The songs you hear are taken from his vast collection of records. Most of the time the shows are related to cultural or fashion movements in the 1960s and 1970s, movements that appeared for a brief moment and disappeared again, without hardly leaving a trace. Anders shows can be regarded as collections of oddities, but if you look and listen deeper you will see the image…

Don Campau – A rare 7′ vinyl special

Don Campau normally presents songs from tapes that were send to him over the last thirty years. His ongoing shows here on Radio On have become a sonic encyclopedia of the individuals, that in the 1980s and 1990s have used the audio cassette as a medium for exchanging their musical experiments. The cassette culture was a very individual, a-commercial movement that mainly existed as a postal phenomena. Since Don is a radio dj for a very long time now, bands and artists also sent him their vinyls. While re-organising his…

The Scratched Vinyl Show, part 3 Station to Station by Adrian Shephard

There are parts in the -THE- book about Berlin – Berlin Alexanderplatz by Alfred Döblin – a saga drenched in melodrama with lots of descriptions of the city itself, that seem to be the result of automatic writing. In a time of spiritist meetings and fairytale esoterics, this assumption doesn’t seem to be too far off. I have the impression that the nowadays Alfred would walk around with a recorder and not with a notebook. In the third part of the scratched vinyl show Adrian Shephard talks about a long…
