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

In the opening scene a twentieth century orphan sleeps under a christmas tree. The sun peeks in through a hole in the curtains. It is nine o’clock in the morning on a sunny day in February. The christmas tree is still alive. … believing in the bearded guy … don’t question the present … inherited Maltese memories smell of whiskey and bread … the early morning bars in Plymouth … the pet store massacre … wounded by watership down … In the key scene a little girl enters the house….

Adrian Shephard – The Scratched Vinyl Show #7, Election Special

Adrian Shephard’s scratched vinyl shows are time travels in both linear directions. Some of the records he finds at flea markets and from which he plays the tracks are manufactured more than fifty years ago. At the same time the possibility arrises that someone out there tapes this show, and it will resurface in 2067. These two borders of perception make the actual now rather fluid. Is there a now? And is this list of topics that you will hear discussed a guarantee that this show ever happened? Here you…

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…
