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…

Brave Ear Radio with Mat Pogo and Joke Lanz

Regular listeners to Brave Ear Radio might start to wonder if the shows are not an ongoing attempt to re-create an All-American setting in which the host Jason Honea finds himself with two strangers. “Howdy stranger, what brings you into town?” The Brave Ear Show is a myth akin to The Great American Novel, and yet Jason tries to create it time and time again. On this show the strangers are Joke Lanz, known in another world for his bruitist art and noises as Sudden Infant or as the time-travelling…

The Amsterdam Connection – Peter Zincken and Geert Jan Hobijn

We have two programs back in our weekly schedule. A few years ago we talked with Peter Zincken and Geert Jan Hobijn. Though both know eachother we interviewed them on different occasions. Peter Zincken was for long years the frontman of the FCKN BSTRDS, a band that combined comic strip brutal art, with the brutal art of making noise. His Dr.Bibber alias is one of the most funny and entertaining live acts ever seen. In this interview we talk about growing up in Amsterdam and the very plain and normal…

Adrian Shephard talks with Christine Jakobs, Helen Arnold and Daniel Blanchard

Who are these guests? To get a bit of a clue we have to mention Cornelius Castoriadis . He set up a movement called ‘Socialisme ou Barbarie.’ This happened from the tail of the 40s, all through the 1950s and lasted until 1967. Cornelius remained an influential person in French political and filosofical circles. Look at snapshots of him. Helen Arnold, one of this evenings guests, was a young American in Paris when she joined the movement. She stayed friends with Cornelius until his death. She translated a book of his…
