New Program – The Wirebender (from the On U sound archives)

After more then one incidental accidental mistake causing Radio On’s administrator Adrian Shephard’s name getting misspelled and changed into Adrian Sherwood, it just happens upon us that the real Adrian Sherwood joins our radio. Brought to us by Simon Wade, his close collaborator, Radio On opens a new season of programs directly connected to On-U Sound. Do we need to explain On-U Sound or Adrian Sherwood? Nah.

William Nurdin – Au Pays des Merveilles #3

Meurthe and Moselle are not the two main characters from a picaresque novel. But listening to William Nurdin’s Au Pays des Merveilles makes one wonder what is going on in between and behind all those strange noises and snippets of conversation.
