Lepke B – Elvis Christmas

Lepke B has been on our Radio a few times now. You can hear him talk about the 60s in England in coversation with Mrs Shephard. The Wirebender featured a live show by him.

In this special show for Radio On Lepke B turns Elvis Christmas songs into the…

Antonio Mainenti – Fight with Bicycle

Antonio Mainenti’s second show for Radio On turns out to be a report with musical intrusions. The main character is the bicycle. This fact guarantees an extremely transparent and amazingly friendly atmosphere, despite the militant title and subject.

In Antonio’s words: “FIGHT WITH BICYCLE by Antonio Mainenti with guitar, bass, kazoo, bike, voice, field recordings. Songs: Le complainte du partisan, mix…

PUNK IS DADA – rebroadcast – editorial by Rinus

They say “hha” in a very cute way. As opposed to the interrogative “huh” where the pitch changes to an higher end in order to create a little void to be filled in by an explanation, this “hha” starts in the torso, like a sigh, but has nothing of its weariness, on the contrary it expresses an inviting recognition to an observation; it encourages and rewards the agent for her/his sharp insight by this sign of approval. “Hha.” The sound of “hha” has also a very retro quality about it,…

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…
