Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – Semiotics

This is fun. Lord Litter applies the early ideology of the internet and creates a hypertext. The playlist below is a disguise for a magazine, such one as only the internet can produce, with sounds, images and words. Hypertext? Umberto Eco! “So how do I make sense of the mess? I try to learn some basic labels. But there are problems here too: if I click on a URL that ends with .indiana.edu I think, Ah – this must have something to do with the University of Indiana. Like hell…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – Old Friends

Some old friends of LL.  They continue to make music. What else to do. They started when they were young. And here is a mirror look to all of you who are still young. You might catch a glimpse of your future. And here’s a mirror look for all of you who once were young. You might catch a glimp of your past. Those who don’t care so much for time-travelling and catching glimpses, here’s yet another LL show for Radio On, from his encyclopedia of songs and sounds: it’s…

Don Campau – The Echolocation of Eternity

Don Campau, look him up here.  Tune in to his radio show if you happen to be on a road trip in California. Stay with us for his more archive oriented shows. For this show Don has dug up mainly seven inches: singles. Energetic, joyful, liberating, incredible. The rich history of the current underground culture, unnoticed by the main media, unnoticed by the main record companies, unnoticed by all those bright people who dump their beautiful blue consumer pearls into your life. Who cares? The plastic future is here. Now…

Don Campau – Back to 1994

Don Campau plays homemade music and sounds in his radio shows. He received loads of cassette releases ever since the 1980s. They filled his garage. Last year Don started to send his tapes to Zeppelin City in the very south of Germany. Packets with hundreds of cassettes travelled from one side of the ocean to the other side. They became part of a work of Teutonic dimensions. Don’s shows for Radio On were made with the tapes that he received in the post. Now that these tapes have gone, he…

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…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – The dark days are almost Gone

An introspective show by LL, this one, maybe inspired by a couple of long and calm songs. It adds an almost lost feeling of silent boredom. This is not a dismissive observation. In the twentieth century, during the days before the second coming of the internet, boredom added to the feeling of being rooted in a time. It gave way to a sense of nothingness, of a very sweet nothingness. And it had nothing to do with the loudmouthed nihilism we experience today. COUNTERCULTURE 2016……… 1. Trio Beau Soir –…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show #17 – the good air of winter, almost gone.

Winter has gone, some of its last breaths of fresh air blow around street corners and buildings. LL greets the coming of springtime with waves of folkland music from various places of the world, and gives some gastronomic advices along the way. Listen to an hour of real organic home-grown music. Says LL …..ART and WIT and HUMOUR… ..back and forth in time.. …….and good FOOD! 1. Horst Jankowski – Donkey Serenade – LP – Traumklang und Rhytmus mit Horst Jankowski – 2. Ken Montgomery / Conrad Schnitzler – second…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show #16 – Magazine

in which you hear… “… the testament of a Folk hero .. a singer for lesbian rights .. .. what happened in the Asylum … … James Last .. AND … Hal McGee..” LL introduces, explains and plays songs by singers loved by the margins, well, except for James Last. After James’s funeral rare gems appeared. LL plays one of them, a surprisingly bondesque tune, that’ll bring good mood to any kitchen. And there’s a stunning Ziggy Stardust interpretation that will make you fly. The show elegantly sways between folk…

Don Campau presents a Ken Clinger Special

Don Campau’s No pigeonholes shows for Radio On evolve around musicians and artists, who produce their work at home. Many of the works presented stem from the heydays of a movement that is known as the cassette culture. People befriended eachother through the post, and lots of packets with cassette tapes in it crossed the ocean or lay in the back of a post truck to be delivered to remote places, but also to the capitals of the world. Don has set up an archive, in which you can find…
