William Nurdin and Friends – Au Pays des Merveilles #8

William Nurdin lives in the north east of France. He travels. He stays at home. He visits friends. Once a week he meets like minded people and transmits a radio show, basically the transmission of a sonic encounter. Every week Radio On receives an edited version of this encounter. What happens? One cannot tell. There is instruments and non instruments played and non played. Recordings from the same day are mixed in. It is not a jam, and not an hour of free-form noise. It is a construct for everyone…

Fourth Interview with Our Man in Kiev: Dmytro Fedorenko

When we spoke to Dmytro for the first time none of us could foresee which turn history would take and that more interviews would follow. Adrian Shephard and I (Rinus van Alebeek) connected via skype. Our first interview was when the protests on Maidan intensified and big black clouds of burning tires were obscuring parts of Kiev. The second interview was after the killings; the third one day after the “referendum” in Crimea. Everyone who follows the news will notice that there is a great information war going on. There…

PUNK IS DADA SPEAKS

This will be the first edition of a new program. Radio On is very glad to have PUNK IS DADA join our cast of program makers. If so far some of our programs or their content could be classified as experimental, it is PUNK IS DADA who takes it to an other level. In her program not the content is experimental, but the medium, it is the radio. Thus, following a very elegant ellipse of thoughts, the distinction of content and medium disappears and comes back as PUNK IS DADA…

Saturday Night and Sunday Morning

Not so long ago, but in some respect eons ago Lepke B and Mrs Shephard had a conversation. Adrian Shephard recorded it secretly. Since no people are harmed nor details from their private lives revealed Radio On transmits this conversation for its unique content. Lepke B, a sound collagist working with cd’s, has a perfect ear and incredible musical memory. He was a boy in England 60s, the main topic of their discussion. Mrs Shephard was a young woman and mother back then. Sunday 19:00-19:35 Saturday Night and Sunday Morning,…

Live Report from Tore Honore Boe’s acoustic laptop workshop

Sunday afternoon 6. April from 12:00 to 18:00 Berlin time our regular program will be interrupted by live reports from Tore Honoré Boe’s acoustic laptop workshop at NK. Adrian Shephard will talk with participants and with Boe, give impressions, transmit ‘the making of an acoustic laptop’ and probably will tell the history of his Stasi secret transmitter suitcase he bought for 7 euro. “Boe did a really fun workshop on how to construct acoustic laptops. In a lighthearted and comical presentation at the end of the week, he said they…

Anne-F Jacques – Sounds for post-peak oil episode 6

A new program from our dear collaborator in Montreal, Anne-F Jacques. You might have encountered her previous episodes already, all characterised by a striking innocence. And each of them an abstract radioplay with lots of space for imaginative participation. Here in her own words: “February in Abitibi, Northern Quebec: frozen electrical wires, alarm from the copper foundry, wind in the microphones; received by the mail, something by Vehscle, on blue Spectrum tapes, and the whole B side of tonal fragments by remnants, on Imminent Frequencies; a few contraptions and whatstits.”…
