Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – Samantha

The history books will look different soon. Everyone can write one, a personal one. Never have the lifes and times of grandparents been so close to our present day experiences. The show Lord Litter offers is a trip to the past that still seems to be part of our present. But you can see and hear that it has started to fade away. Playlist 1. Blake Jones and the Trike Shop – Goldfinger 2. Blake Jones and the Trike Shop – That Abandoned Theatre 1/2 CD – Make 3. Sleep…

Radio On Neanderthal Love

This was supposed to be a Tape Review Show, and actually one or two tapes were played, but the show turned into a giant rant, mainly by Rinus against self-righteous behaviour on social media. So we hear stories about Romenian refugees, found tapes, Freddy and Elton, Dune, mules, neanderthal love, phobians, Bauhaus and the quest for fire.   Tapes played were released by Tanzprocesz, Falt Records and Plaza Zachodnia   You want to submit your works or tapes/CDs/Vinyls released by you or your label?

Rinus Van Alebeek – Letter from Amsterdam and Berlin

I moved back to Berlin in the month of February 2018. The audio reports that I started in Poland will continue, albeit in a different form. I will still use my Sony Walkman, walk and talk, observe, think aloud and allow snippets of every day life to land on the surface of the magnetic tape. In this letter from Amsterdam and Berlin I didn’t do any talking. On side A I recorded sounds from Amsterdam, on side B I recorded sounds from Berlin. Right at the middle of both sides…

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…

Dai Coelacanth – RANDOM SEWAGE FROM A STRANGERS WIFE / YOU’RE A WIG, Mr MALIGNANT

Dai Coelacanth arrived a year ago. He had been on a holiday in Greece. It started then. Thinking while listening. Something happened. A man who was there when Mr. Sony sent his walkman to earth. They fell on every shop and in every home like children’s balloons who had gone the reverse way. He still has a walkman. Other people have a smart phone. Both walk the streets and talk freely into a microphone. Both transmit messages. Dai makes cassette walkman art. And I wonder if he is the only…

Dai Coelacanth – Love Station Yaba

Dare to listen. Dai to listen. Scraps, magnetic tape filth, hoarse voices, 21st century leaks, brutalist tapes, concrete footprints, yesterday’s news. A huge new collage, harsh sound poem by Dai Coelacanth. Your speakers never sounded so true to life. in Dai’s words “There’s something I forgot to tell you. It’s about a memory. The fair was in town and I was going to go with a neighbour … but she died in a horrific accident. Down by the river where the construction work is going on. New buildings for new…

Rinus Van Alebeek – Letter from Berlin

I moved back to Berlin in the month of February 2018. The audio reports that I started in Poland will continue, albeit in a different form. I will still use my Sony Walkman, walk and talk, observe, think aloud and allow snippets of every day life to land on the surface of the magnetic tape. In the sixth letter from Berlin I visited three concerts at West Germany. I arrive by bicycle. you hear parts of my bicycle ride, descriptions and sounds of Kottbusser Tor and fragments of concerts by…

Don Campau – Between a Cold Blacksmith and an Intangible Cat

After a series of time travels Don Campau takes a break. His garage empty now, since he shipped all his old cassettes to Zeppelin City, he finds out that new cassettes kept on arriving in the post. Here are some of them, together with the stories that put the artists in a historical perspective. This selection of tapes could easily be the promotion soundtrack for a great festival dedicated to cassette culture. As for now you can visit, or become a member of this on-line society. Enjoy! Tracklist Gen Ken…
