Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – Welcome to the Lord Litter Café

Where-in Lord Litter virtually reconstructs a bar in Berlin. It’s a place where people talk more and smoke less. There is no wi-fi signal, and the clients are encouraged to leave the smart phones and tablets at home. Old friends talk about old times, and when the new times press their noses against the window, also the spleen of today gets discussed over a glass of beer. The music that sounds over the thirty year old loudspeakers is produced in a garage or in a small home studio. No majors…

The Nikolas Schreck Show – Crime

The Nikolas Schreck Shows are fun. Nikolas introduces a completely new approach to the Radio On studio. The theme for this show is Crime. Nikolas takes the function follow form principle from architecture to an other level. He writes a script, and the show becomes a play. Think crime, think Hollywood, think hard-boiled and you can get an idea where this show might take you. Still it will come as a surprise to hear how next to Nikolas, Ania Psh, Sonja Heller and Adrian Shephard turn into characters in a…

Cassette Review: Giorgio Dursi – Poetry reading with sound footnotes

In front of the mirror, a man opens his mouth. It goes a long way, his look, because his mouth is wide open. It is bigger than his face. It is bigger than his face and he thinks of Fantastic Voyage an American science-fiction movie. The film is about a submarine crew who shrink to microscopic size and venture into the body of an injured scientist to repair the damage to his brain. The man in the mirror doesn’t see that words leave his mouth. Words that are shrunk to…

Nikolas Schreck – Lecture on Sound

The key notion of Nikolas Schreck’s lecture evolves around sound as a means to connect to the other world. Schreck makes a clear distinction between this world, the world we live in, and the other world, which is clearly somewhere else. You hear an inner voice? It is your direct connection to the other world. Nikolas said How did a Haitian propagandist born in a cemetery, a Beatnik junkie author, a teenage art student obsessed with Wagner, and an Egyptian pharoah inspire Nikolas to develop his work in the mystical…

Jason Honea meets Nikolas Schreck

Jason Honea, who gave us so many fine hours with his Brave Ear shows, met up with Nikolas Schreck. California born and raised Nikolas Schreck’s father was a manager of famous and less famous musicians. Count Basie put young Nikolas’s hands on the keyboard of the piano. Vincent Price had some talks with him. In this show Nikolas elaborates on the notion of sonic magic and the song as a micro-cosmos. We hear an eye-witness account of a punk concert evening in Los Angelas’ legendary venue the Whiskey-a-Go-G0, and a…

Jade on Jade, episode two – The Stationery Artist

‘I met up with Jade Blue to record this second episode and order a giant breakfast which never arrived in Berlin close to Hermannplatz (note there is a 1.1 episode but that is still to come). For those who have been following Jades’ adventures you will know about her stationery compulsions and her aversion to becoming stationary. This episode was fascinating for me as i haven’t seen Jade since she was diagnosed with breast cancer 7 months ago and she was open enough to talk very directly about her chemo…
