The newest programs

Anders Östberg – Children, elves and a tree person. Music from my collection.

Anders Östberg is from Sweden. He lives in a pretty small town a good car’s ride west of Stockholm. Wooden houses are painted in colors flaming red or nature green. And there’s houses that don’t add anything special to the village. Maybe there is nothing special at all about the small town he lives in. But ‘special’ is a prerogative held by those who are looking for something unique. We got that. I know Anders personally. I can say that he is gifted with a fine-tuned bullshit-detector. I also know…

Don Campau – No Pigeonholes – Focus on Anna Homler

Don Campau’s new show is a special feature on Anna Homler. If this is your first time here, then I can only strongly recommend to listen to Don’s show. It is more then entertainment, or a living example of what FMradio could be like if those radiomakers were only a bit more interested in what is happening outside the music industries. Don’s way of presenting makes listening to his shows a heart warming experience. Don’s words: “Anna is one of my favorites. Strangely, I originally found about her from Harald…

Jon Evans and son Stormy – All Things Cats

Jon Evans does these kind of things but he does also a very pleasant peaceful radio program with his son Stormy. Here you can hear Storm do the presentation. In short scrapbook bits of information we hear normal, not normal, remarkable and encyclopedical facts about cats. Jon Evans has made the musical choice and has found tracks from all different genres. All of them have one thing in common. They are songs about cats. All different. Perfect for having a lazy cat-like moment of just listening and do nothing, or…

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. Lepke B. works with old and found CDs. A perfect ear, and a hideously omnilogic memory of pop tunes, he mixes, cuts, collages, loops with such remarkable ease that you get the impression the songs have finally reached their final destination. 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. All shows on Radio On are good, but few manage to get the feel of a bright sunny day with a bit of wind into it. A must listen! In Antonio’s words: “FIGHT WITH BICYCLE by Antonio Mainenti with guitar, bass, kazoo, bike, voice, field recordings. Songs: Le complainte du partisan, mix…

William Nurdin – Au Pays des Merveilles #9

Au Pays des Merveilles is the Radio On edit of William Nurdin’s travelling radio show callled A Propos de Minos. William goes places, meets up with sound makers and embarks on a sonic trip with unknown destination. For Radio On he reworks the recordings and adds some location recordings to it. Au Pays des Merveilles #9 was recorded in Club der Polnische Versager in Berlin Mitte, with Berlin sounds added to it. The result can be seen as a report that portrays a musician of the marginal kind on a…

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,…
