Lord Litter’s Radio On Show #34 – Reading out Loud

Lord Litter is happy. The weather is fine. The music is good. He listens. He listens to the words and hears something about the town he lives in. He hears about changes. He reads out loud those words. It is a postcard. Silence burns a hole in the show. Use it to take a look inside. 1. Felidae – No right to remain silent – CD – Baby Someday 2. LL reading the lyrics of *At The Backyard (Berlin Edit)* 3. Felidae – At The Backyard (Berlin Edit) – digitalsingle…

Live Coverage of Fraction Bruit #17 in Loophole, Berlin

On Saturday 27th of May Adrian Shephard, one of the founding fathers of Radio On, will put on his camouflage clothes and swallow a blue pill. He will be teleported to his past. He will carry a small broadcasting device with him, because he needs to transmit sounds from an evening full of noises. Nobody will be able to recognise him, since he will be disguised as a ghost from the future. If there is any need for you as a listener to find out if their is still life…

Juris Marnavskis aka Noize Factor

Says Adrian Shephard in his Notes on being an Ausländer “I’m constantly scanning a particular expat social network site with 60,000 members for any ‘for sale’ items. This has several advantages it seems, I get to visit many different parts of Berlin that ordinarily I would never explore, as well as meeting a vast array of different and interesting people mostly expats that are somehow managing to just about survive here in this city of the night.” “Last week I bought a fruit drying machine for example. This week it…

David Gordon – The Bookshop

Radio On covers the monthly poetry evenings from Curious Fox bookstore in Berlin. Listeners can witness a hearty audience, that greets every poet with loud bangs and cheers. The evenings are always packed. There must be something about that bookstore that made it become a haven to Berlin’s expats. In the documentary you hear voices. Normally it comes with images. The real image can only be seen and felt in the bookshop itself. As an alternative you might take a book, open it, listen and start dreaming.   The blurb…

Tapes from Istanbul – Adrian Shephard (August 2015)

When I listened to Tapes from Istanbul, through my headphones, I was thrilled from the very first steps that Adrian described. I had to think about this, because my excitement went beyond those feelings, which normally make my senses wobble when listening to anything audio. It was very clear, that something else was going on. The Istanbul Tapes tell a story, that we thought to have lost, somewhere around the time when television became a medium for the masses. Before that time, places were still exotic. And the main reason…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – Special Presentations

Lord Litter is one of our two DJ’s who make a kind of traditional form radio show: he talks about the artist, gives some information, and plays the song. But this is also Radio On. And overhere we like it when things make sense. Our radio is not about fast thougts-easy comments. That’s why we are very pleased to have LL with us. You might not hear it immediately, but he has a message to bring across. Here’s one example. Word to LL: “A bit of hope: The worst case…

Sister Chain and Brother John, live at the Roter Salon, Berlin

Adrian visited a red saloon, and this is what happened: “It’s a Monday evening in Berlin and post-Victorian duo Sister Chain and Brother John launch their new vinyl single ‘Staying in Soho’ (yes a 7 inch single!) at the Roter Salon, a subsection of the legendary Volksbühne. The place is adorned in sumptuous red and Brother John looks resplendent in a red smoking jacket, while Sister Chain hails straight from Spring heeled Jacks’ London smog. Together they are a time travelling classic and unforgettable duo. The evening is supported by a documentary…
