The Scratched Vinyl Show #12 – ‘I remember his tail and more tales …’

Adrian Shephard, one of the founding fathers of Radio On, lives not far from a flea market. With first sunny days to hit Berlin, the sellers come out again and set up their stalls. This is the sign that springtime has arrived, but it is also the moment that the scratched vinyl show awakes from its hibernation. Adrian returns from the market with a bag full of old records. And as Mussorgsky used to say, every record tells a story. This is what the scratched vinyl show is all about….

Juan Angel Italiano – Sounds from Uruguay

Juan Angel Italiano lives in Maldonado, Uruguay. Seen from Berlin it is at the other side of the world. The world has many centers. One of those centers could be a simple spool. As Juan Angel puts it: Open reel spools, bought at a street garage sale. Sounds dirty, interspersed. Sermons and locutions of evangelist pastors, tango music, radial advertising. As Discépolo recited in Cambalache: “the Bible next to the heater. You are tuning channel 246, frequency modulated in stereo, Montevideo, Uruguay. There is also a handwritten date that says…

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 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…
