Adrian Shephard – Scratched Vinyl Show #6 – Atomic

Radio On Studio is a very old space station, floating over the roofs of Berlin Kreuzberg. If you are in Berlin, look up, you might catch the strange hardly identifiable flying object. And if you are lucky, you can wave at Adrian as he sticks his head out of the window and plays his toy trumpet. Or you try to make sense of the things he tells you from upthere, but alas..the wind, the traffic .. “Maybachufer flohmarkt…last minute.. on the edge .. big green caterpillar on the pavement..strangle my…

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…

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…
