Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – Don Campau special, part1

Don’s own words about the beginning of his career:”at the time I lived near this old road in San Jose where the train ran parallel. The train sounded a lot like the autochord sound on Greg’s Yamaha keyboard. There was magic in this simplicity and the fact that anything seemed possible.” The first part of LL’s special on Don Campau offers everything that a lover of Americana can wish for. It becomes a road movie, not showing you the geographical landscape, but various aspects of a cutural landscape as it…

Don Campau – Tout S’en Va

Don Campau is our long time collaborator. He presents tracks from his vast collection of audio cassettes. He received these tapes since the 1970s. Listeners who tune in to his shows mor frequently slowly achieve knowledge about one of the biggest cultural movements that has existed, and in a newer version still exists: the cassette culture. Don is transferring now most of his tapes to Zeppelin City in the deep south of Germany, where they will become part of a cassette culture museum. As a result Don stumbles upon tapes…

Tape Review Show – Cassettes by Sam Bakers and Acrid Lactations & Jointhee

In the Tape Review Show Adrian Shephard and yours truly (=Rinus Van Alebeek) play and review releases on cassette. You can have your cassette reviewed on our show too. But you need to send the cassette, we don’t do digital files. In the show we unpack the tape, describe the artwork, smell the paper, comment on this, sometimes use the sounds of the paper inlay and the cassette case to construct a short sonic intermezzo, and then we play one side of the tape. When the tape is over we…

The Tape Review Show with Loe Lof Lon (MuteAnt Sounds) and Flocculi (Tutore Burlato)

This edition of the Tape Review Show is a-typical. Apart from lecturing about fossiles in space we also review a CDr we received in the post. (Please remind, if you’d like to send something, to write ‘For Rinus’ somewhere on the envelope, and not at the top of the address list like in the picture above.) This is why: Gori Loeloflon wanted his music to be played by our radio very much. In fact he wants that everyone plays his music, and that’s why he gives it away for free….

Tape Review Show – Tutore Burlato special #3 with Grip Casino/Ezio Piermattei and Posset

The procedure in the Tape Review Show is very simple. One side of a tape release will be played in its full length. The tape itself and the art work will be described; artist name and label mentioned as well. Once the tape is finished, Adrian Shephard and yours sincerely (=Rinus Van Alebeek) might discuss the tape or go into stories and events, obviously inspired by listening to the sounds. The first broadcast of the Tape Review Shows are always unnanounced and live from the Radio On studio in Berlin….

Interview with Coco and Kris Limbach

Meeting Coco and Kris Limbach at the Oranien studio turned out to be an electrifying experience on a steamy hot evening in Berlin. Kris talked about filming under the moonlight in a desolated Spanish landscape, about wood fires and burried melons and the special meaning of the color purple to Spanish history, and of course about his film “The Lost Color” from which he played sound samples, because the soundtrack is something special too. Coco presented her new tape “The Crystal Garden” which is a majestical piece of music, a…

Rinus van Alebeek – Tapes and Talks from the Mulinen Studio vol 5 – Larry Mondello Band

I sent Steve Defoe a tape of mine. He sent four tapes back to me. That’s how i came into possesion of cassettes by The Larry Mondello Band. The packet looked beautiful. And the tapes were all shiny and new, though issued in the last century. I decided to play them during my show. You hear sounds and songs from Tuba Lesson (1989) Fun with Static (1981) Mondello Mantras (1991) and The Warbler (1994). I recite some info from here and here, read some headlines from the years 1981 and 1991,…

Rinus in the Mulinen Studio #1

A show produced at an old wooden table in the heart of the Porticello Castle on the shores of the Liparian Sea. I (=Rinus van Alebeek) used exclusively tape players. The show opens with a long run of the tape EP-1 by EclectikTronik (Ben Roberts.) An other tape played in the process is by The Shitty Listener (Jason Honea). For the rest of the one hour show I mix own recordings (some done on a winter’s day at Tempelhof, an other one in the highest sphere up on Teufelsberg) (others…
