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…

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…

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….

Calais -a volunteer in the jungle, part 1 by Imogen Pettitt

First Transmission on Saturday 20. February at 18:00Berlin Time (5pm in Uk – 7pm in Syria – 9.30pm in Afghanistan) Imogen Pettitt went from Wales to Calais with a van full of bicycles. She reported her trip but also her impressions from the Calais Jungle,a steadily growing community of 6000 refugees. It is good she is not a professional journalist and talked with people without caring too much for the background noises. As a result it is not only her words, but also the sounds from the Calais Jungle that become…

The Wirebender presents Ghetto Priest special by David Asher

    “The Wirebender presents part one of a three part special. David Asher from Detroit has compiled the first artist feature of the year: Ghetto Priest. David will showcase Ghetto Priest’s work with On-U Sound Records, Asian Dub Foundation  and all of the aspects of his diverse and collaborative musical mayhem, including rare and unreleased tracks provided by On U Sound mastermind Adrian Maxwell Sherwood and Ghetto Priest.” Some words on Ghetto Priest “With On-U Sound’s revival in the early 00s, both live and on record, came a new figurehead…

Interview with Mr. Vast aka Henry Sargeant by Adrian Shephard

We got some information on Mr. Vast. There is mention of  a “dark clown,” which I think is unsettling because all clowns are (jeez we cant say that – ed). I read  “the Monty Python of electronic music” and  “BBC” and “bewilderingly ecstatic levels” and I think, should we have this person on our show? There’s more words to his greatness. He proclaims that he is a preacher, a screecher, an Archie Leacher. An artless dodger, a limelight hogger, a dead horse flogger. He‘s the genial game-show host whose mind…

Anne F Jacques – Sounds for the Post Peak Oil, episode 10

Anne F. Jacques’ shows are all about care. You can deduct from the ‘playlist’ here below how every single sound gets its place in the wonderfull gallery she composes from it. There is more behind this. Anne has created one of the most exclusive and at the same time inclusive cassette labels I know of. Far away from the digital representation, the hip and the hype it exists only as that what it is: a tape with music on it, a wrap with stamped information and a few illustrations that…

Don Campau – No Pigeonholes (cassettes 1985 – 1997)

It is always a pleasure to listen to a new show by Don Campau. There’s always a hidden gem; in this show The Cheese and their cheap kisses. The tracks he chose are mostly from the 80s, and not few of them remind of the music styles that were dominant back then. Don’s choice for this show is, well, a bit on the weird side, and a very enjoyable weirdness it is. Hear him introduce the songs, talk about the makers in this new edition of the cassette culture encyclopaedia….

William Nurdin presents Au Pays des Merveilles #20 – In Front Of…

  William Nurdin’s APDM is an itinerant radio program. William arrives at places, finds like-minded people and a like-minded space; they tune in and play. Everything is possible, everything is allowed. The original APDM sessions come to you as they are, live raw and upfront. For Radio On William Nurdin mixes the sessions; he cuts and edits and an APDM Radio On version is born.   In this episode you hear voices, objects, guitars, strange recordings, maybe kitchen noises or the TV. It all makes for an at times uncompromising…
