Anders Östberg – The Stars are Beautiful

Anders Östberg reaches out to the stars. He can see a lot of them in his hometown somewhere in Sweden. The music might be defined ambient. But there is also a time before ambient music. And that’s where some of the pieces come from. From somewhere in space, or at least from a place that could be defined as such. You will hear sounds for space travels, and for lounge parties in space ships. You will hear music that was avant-garde many eons ago, and you will hear sounds to…

The Tape Review Show – vinyl edition with Shangorilla Records

The show opens with an in-depth interview. How will Brexit affect one of our station masters? Is this the end of Radio On? Will Adrian S. be put on a train to Poland? We muse over capital punishments, the beheading of David Cameron, french boeuf in Great Britain, the end of the internet, round rooms, dreams. We play tracks from the albums that were generously sent to us by Shangorilla Records. We describe and discuss the albums. And so much more, of course. You want to submit your works or…

The Tape Review Show, vinyl edition – Bookwar records. 

For this edition of our tape review show we invited Giada dalla Bontà. She is a curator and independent researcher with growing knowledge of soviet underground art. She has visited Moscow and other parts of Russia on numerous occasions and thus could provide detailed footnotes to the evolving stories. We talk about russian air, underground art, painting with shoe creme, where to go, what to eat, who’s who and why, and play and describe the albums that were generously sent to us by bookwar records. You want to submit your…

Agnès Pe – Mitt Paté (It’s not Fair)

Radio On welcomes yet again Agnès Pe on her modern day travel through the mirror and beyond. Riddles are disguised as truth. Truth is disguised as sound. Sound is disguised as a riddle. There’s no way to solve it. The merry-go-round is at an eternal standstill. Your head is not even spinning. Don’t trust record players. Watch out for the desert guitar. Tay Ploops – it’s not fair // Dj Frontin – Wouldn’t It Be Nice To Get Back Trianon // W00DY – Unloveable // Angelwings Marmalade – Nü Country…

Timothy Snyder – On Language and “Not Even Fascism”

On a dark and cold Winter’s day I travelled to the very west of Berlin, to Wannsee. I had my little walkman with me. I wanted to record another Letter from Berlin. The walkman stopped working, and it got back into a short-lived existence when I stood on the platform of the S-Bahn station, waiting for the train to get back home.   I wanted to record impressions and parts of Timonthy Snyder’s lecture at the American Academy in Berlin. You can read a résumé of the evening on the…

Rinus Van Alebeek – Letter from Berlin

I moved back to Berlin in the month of February 2018. The audio reports that I started in Poland will continue, albeit in a different form. I will still use my Sony Walkman, walk and talk, observe, think aloud and allow snippets of every day life to land on the surface of the magnetic tape. November 2018 in Berlin. Emmanuel Rébus was on a short visit. I had asked a sound colleague if we (half-Diktat) could do a short set as an opening on an evening organised by him. Said colleague…
