Radio On Parachutes

This show comes from the deep archives of Radio On. It dates back from the time that we were a nomadic radio station. You will hear mention of cannibal caniche, a web radio based in Paris that hosted us on a couple of occasions. You will here a vintage Shephard/Van Alebeek talking about parachutes, hair, flowers, seeds, punk, the future, and, and, and. The talks, dialogues, lectures melt into short stories, become radiophonic pieces and go back to ordinary topics again.   You want to submit your works or tapes/CDs/Vinyls…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – I hear a new world

A new world? Probably we need to wait another one hundred years to see that one in action, and maybe mankind needs a strong telescope by then. As for now we go with the world we have. Is it a nice one, a great one, a small one, a grim one, a happy one? You need to choose your own definition. But whatever way you define your world, I hope it is also a world full of friends. Here’s a couple of Lord Litter‘s friends. 1. Joe Meek – Glob…

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. In the sixth letter from Berlin I visited three concerts at West Germany. I arrive by bicycle. you hear parts of my bicycle ride, descriptions and sounds of Kottbusser Tor and fragments of concerts by…

Jade on Jade, episode 3 – In Japan

In the third episode of Jade on Jade Adrian Shephard interviews the main character of the series about her recent trip to Japan. Reluctantly she throws in some postcards. Adrian keeps on asking because he knows there is more. Jade has come back from Japan with the attitude of the silent Zen Master. Questions are like flies. One should learn not to bother. You will only care about flies if you have a fly brain. But Adrian keeps on buzzing and bit by bit he collects the pieces of the…

Radio On in the Promised Land ( on all Hallow’s eve)

Adrian Shephard resurrected an ancient Radio On show from the data cemetery. He washed the corpse, connected some wires, waited for a thunder storm, made sure that the lightning would strike and voilà, the voices came back, the characters took shape and there they were in the flesh and blood. A drama unfolds in which Lucifer shows God and his little helper around on his real estate. Ghost stories, the guillotine, cemeteries, the plague, a plan, a jester and a minstrel are just a few of the many elements of…

Radio On Speechless

One July evening, just before the heatwave landed on Berlin like a big invisible space ship, Shephard and Van Alebeek embarked on a two hour sonic journey. Acting as Radio Staalplaat, sending their waves to the world through dfm.nu, internet radio from Amsterdam, the duo tried to stop the total meltdown. The studio turned red, temperature went up. They twisted knobs and spoke with plants. Nothing helped. They went somewhere. At the end they were back in the studio, a point of no return.   You want to submit your…
