June Crawford interview and live sets

June Crawford makes radio shows for Radio On. With regular intervals he sends his audio reports from his home base Montreal. In the last days of the Summer of 2018 he was on a visit to Berlin. He worked on his opera ‘Gun’ in an artist residency. Adrian Shephard, joined by Rinus Van Alebeek, received June in the Radio On studio.

The Scratched Vinyl Show #11 – Bowie and Mim King in Berlin

Adrian Shephard’s scratched vinyl shows combine memories and storytelling with tracks played from records found during the after-hours of flea markets. In this special edition of the SVS, Adrian has Mim King as a guest. Mim was and still is a huge fan of David Bowie. She chooses tracks from the Christiane F soundtrack album, reads from the book Bowie in Berlin, and takes us on a dazzling tour of London in the 1970s and Berlin in 1979 and 1980. Follow Mim to Top of the Pops, K West studio’s,…

Radio On Beuys

On the dustiest shelf of the Radio On archives there are even recordings from shows that probably no-one heard. They are from the pre-history of our radio when Shephard and Van Alebeek first met somewhere in the hinterlands of East Berlin. Back then they still played music, but luckily after hardly one minute the tracks get interrupted by their stream of unconscious talking. Musicologist discussions, ponderings on heroin and an old evergreen determine the first half of the show. At the center there is a long series of questions about…

Radio On Parachutes

This show comes from the deep archives of Radio On. It dates back from the time that we were a nomadic radio station. You will hear mention of cannibal caniche, a web radio based in Paris that hosted us on a couple of occasions. You will here a vintage Shephard/Van Alebeek talking about parachutes, hair, flowers, seeds, punk, the future, and, and, and. The talks, dialogues, lectures melt into short stories, become radiophonic pieces and go back to ordinary topics again. You want to submit your works or tapes/CDs/Vinyls released…

Radio On – Getting to Sleep

This show comes from the deep archive of Radio On. It is part of an attempt to produce a 24hour radio show. Adrian Shephard and Rinus Van Alebeek play poptunes, discuss 1980s, executions, how to die, the guillotine, but then, all of sudden the narrative drifts off. Sleep! A surprise phone call marks the end. You want to submit your works or tapes/CDs/Vinyls released by you or your label? Learn how to submit. * Please check the Schedule for broadcast hours/days

Radio On – Never Ending Radio

This show is by Radio On’s founding fathers Adrian Shephard and Rinus Van Alebeek. It surfaced from our deep archives only recently. The show was recorded a very long time ago. Adrian and Rinus were on a mission. They did not have any other choice. A snowstorm had hit Berlin. Snow fell down for weeks on end. Big masses of snow blocked the door and the windows. They didnot have a possibility to leave the house. So they started a never ending radio show to kill the time. They discover…

Adrian Shephard and Rinus Van Alebeek host a live show with our guest Christian Schiefner. Christian will present his label Falt Records. He will play a couple of short live sets. Your Radio On hosts will try to discover how many stories are hidden in a single cassette. Tune in at 9pm Berlintime.

Radio On in the Promised Land ( on all Hallow’s eve)

Adrian Shephard resurrected an ancient Radio On show from the data cemetery. He washed the corpse, connected some wires, waited for a thunder storm, made sure that the lightning would strike and voilà, the voices came back, the characters took shape and there they were in the flesh and blood. A drama unfolds in which Lucifer shows God and his little helper around on his real estate. Ghost stories, the guillotine, cemeteries, the plague, a plan, a jester and a minstrel are just a few of the many elements of…
