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,…

It is the 25th edition of Taishi’s Lunch time show. It is six months now that he receives guests in his kitchen, cooks for them, has lunch, talks with them and plays some fine exotic music as well.

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…
