Disastronaut in Berlin – Interview with Jeff Reed

Jeff is becoming a regular on our radio. He comes over from the UK for a blitz visit to Berlin, and always, and nicely so, ends up in our studio talking with his old friend Adrian Shephard. Now, if these were cold war times, and the calendar would say 1973, and the thermometer would indicate -32ºC, we could probably tell different stories about Jeff’s visits to West- Berlin. Because, why would someone visit West-Berlin so often and only for 36 hours, if DDR is everywhere around you with their spies,…

Coffee Corner Red Carpet Show with special guest Angie Yeowell

Adrian Shephard and Rinus Van Alebeek went for a coffee in their favourite bar. A nice Summer’s day, all the seats outside were taken. They had to drink their coffee inside. Soon after the first sip, Adrian took out his recorder, plugged in the headphones and announced this radio show. As things go so often here on our radio, we didn’t have any plan at all. The first subject of our talking, apart from a description of the bar and our coffee was a peculair action taking place right before…

Barbara Lazara performs An Enzymatic Meshing Machine

Barbara Lazara is a kind of regular on our radio. Adrian Shephard went to see her performance that rounded of a residency at Errant Bodies in Berlin. Adrian had a little talk with her before the show. You will hear this of course. Barbara talked about a very interesting observation. She said that one of the ways to take our DNA is to get a bit of saliva. And she continued that the same DNA had to contain lots of information on languages that we, as mankind, once used. This…

Live Coverage of Fraction Bruit #17 in Loophole, Berlin

On Saturday 27th of May Adrian Shephard, one of the founding fathers of Radio On, will put on his camouflage clothes and swallow a blue pill. He will be teleported to his past. He will carry a small broadcasting device with him, because he needs to transmit sounds from an evening full of noises. Nobody will be able to recognise him, since he will be disguised as a ghost from the future. If there is any need for you as a listener to find out if their is still life…

Live Studio Session + interview – Alexei Borisov, Olga Nosova and Bob Meanza

Alexei Borisov and Olga Nosova returned to our studio again. The main purpose of the visit was to present the new album, Raw Volumes, they made in collaboration with Bob Meanza. Alexei, used to the medium of radio, also talks about the band he started in the 1980s, Notshnoy Prospekt. We hear stories about the people involved, that show a glimpse of underground life during Soviet times. The band finished, started again, or maybe not, but now there’s new works, sounding electro-doom-1980s, hard-boiled or like taking a stroll. Fun! Bob…
