Mitt Paté #22 by Agnès Pe – War on Christmas

This is cruel, dear listener. It is as cruel as eating murdered animals or celebrating the birth of a kid who escaped from genocide. It is as cruel as christmas decoration and as cruel as being crucified by ISIS. This is an example of bad taste. It tastes as bad as spending millions with your blessed credit card. It tastes as bad as all the shows you see on TV or the songs you are forced to listen to in the shopping streets of your town. This is sickening. It…

Adrian Shephard – The Scratched Vinyl Show #7, Election Special

Adrian Shephard’s scratched vinyl shows are time travels in both linear directions. Some of the records he finds at flea markets and from which he plays the tracks are manufactured more than fifty years ago. At the same time the possibility arrises that someone out there tapes this show, and it will resurface in 2067. These two borders of perception make the actual now rather fluid. Is there a now? And is this list of topics that you will hear discussed a guarantee that this show ever happened? Here you…

Don Campau – Back to 1992

Now that Don Campau has sent all his tapes to Zeppelin City, where, one day, they might become a part of a giant exhibition, Don travels to his past radio days. The second time travel show was recorded on tape and offers an insight in a day in the life of a community radio somewhere in the woods of California. The show opens with Don’s mini pop-opera Helter Skelter, with fake or real excerpts of Charles Manson’s diary. All the rest is history, living history to be precise. playlist (Rebroadcast…

Junie Crawford – Easy (fourth transmission)

The fourth transmission by Junie Crawford, our man in Montreal. Slowly his radio pieces evolve into fragments of a larger epic story. Those who want to hear, can sense the presence of a wide land with all its history and its future possibilities. A big city in the northern part of the Americas, and a Winter that’s closing in. Junie says: “it is a hard thing, a very hard thing: to be kind, to be easy, to love completely. materials :: iphone 5s, logic pro x, marantz pmd222, zoom h4n…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – Welcome to the Lord Litter Café

Where-in Lord Litter virtually reconstructs a bar in Berlin. It’s a place where people talk more and smoke less. There is no wi-fi signal, and the clients are encouraged to leave the smart phones and tablets at home. Old friends talk about old times, and when the new times press their noses against the window, also the spleen of today gets discussed over a glass of beer. The music that sounds over the thirty year old loudspeakers is produced in a garage or in a small home studio. No majors…

The Nikolas Schreck Show – Crime

The Nikolas Schreck Shows are fun. Nikolas introduces a completely new approach to the Radio On studio. The theme for this show is Crime. Nikolas takes the function follow form principle from architecture to an other level. He writes a script, and the show becomes a play. Think crime, think Hollywood, think hard-boiled and you can get an idea where this show might take you. Still it will come as a surprise to hear how next to Nikolas, Ania Psh, Sonja Heller and Adrian Shephard turn into characters in a…

Photo by Adrian Shephard   Nikolas Schreck is back in the Radio On studio with an interview about an old murder case. Why write a book about something that happened seventy years ago?

The listener will be transported to the obscure side of California and hear stories that could relate to pulp magazines, film noir and gonzo journalism.   In Nikolas’ words “The…
