The Second Interview with our Man in Kiev

The second interview with Dmytro is done in two parts. Do we need to say more about him? From the interview you will learn that he is at the protester’s camp every day and takes part in the protests in one way or an other. The interview goes on for almost an hour. We hear about historical (Stalinist) origins of the cultural and political division between east and west-Ukraine and how this has an impact on the protest movement. The point of the radical opposition gets explained; the perception of…

While working on the interview with our man in Kiev

Strange things keep on happening. The first transmission of the first interview got interrupted after 23 minutes. Radio On remained braindead for at least ten minutes. The second broadcast got interrupted as well. Both interruptions resulted in dead air, and a fair loss of listeners. During the interview on Saturday 8. February the line went dead after 14 minutes. The rest of the day it was impossible to get a live program out. It is of course all a coincidence and everything will be fine tomorrow. We will continue our…

We love and respect our Radio On collaborators, that is for sure. Nonetheless, if we were all in a room, I would have asked you to raise from your seat and give a warm welcome to Don Campau.

He started his career in 1971 and now after more then forty years he is still at the very edge of contemporary non academic music. Anything odd, wild, experimental, rare, made at home, put on a tape,…

3. February – A Propos de Minos by William Nurdin

A new program by French radio producer/musician William Nurdin offers a re-mix/best of of the shows he has made for various radio stations since 2007. A Propos de Minos is an itinerant Radio Show and could be considered as Nurdin’s personal barometer, a sonic report of his encounters during his travels and tours. The shows, therefore, offer also an insight in the various off-institutional DIY-scenes and the current state of audio/radio experimentations. The first episode of A Propos de Minos brings you ‘dialogues’ with the likes of A.Neizrn, T.Strauss, B.Loigher,…

31. January, Kyiv – Kiev – Interview

We don’t have any intention to join the exclusive four star hotellounge world of journalism, but when we have a friend in a country that is constantly been reported about, we would like to hear how he is, and how the situation in his hometown influences his daily life. “You cannot stay in,” was his first comment. He had been out on the streets for the last weeks. We spoke to Dmytro via skype while it was relatively calm in Kiev. He talks about the political situation, about the spreading…
