Dai Coelacanth – Return of the Cosmic Scorpion

Do Dai Coelacanth’s contributions to Radio On evolve into a sci-fi radioplay, a discardable walkman’s alternative to all paytv’s series? Be your own detective. Read his words. Maybe they sound familiar. Susan had joined a show band. I was asked to play trumpet. Not in the band. They wanted me to stand in a shop doorway. They liked my tone. They said it was undecipherable. We had been on the planet for twenty years and had failed to establish ourselves. We were there. We were alive. We were regressing. Susan’s…

Alexei Borisov and the New World

Alexei Borisov is a regular guest on our radio. Whenever he is in Berlin we are happy to host him in our studio and listen to his entertaining and informative stories that take us through different layers and levels of his experiences while living in the Soviet Union, present-day Moscow and beyond. Alexei has built an almost encyclopedic knowledge of the current state of the marginalised underground music of any kind and genre. A musician and experimentalist since the long gone 1980s, Alexei has visited the small and big places…

Dai Coelacanth – Crude Crayfish vs Cosmic Scorpion

Dai Coelacanth tells stories. You can’t tell where he is. The television signal is distorted. No telescope can find him. He lives on a distorted tape. He is one of the dust particles. He lives on the streets of Bangkok. He is friends with a woman called Suzy. She feeds him spiders. You want to submit your works or tapes/CDs/Vinyls released by you or your label?

20 March, 20.00-21.30 Rádio Nuda live from Prague

This evening sees another premiere on Radio On. Brutism or bruitism, or simply a new arrangement of the sounds that surround us? Tune in to find an answer to non-existing questions. Your host will be Romano Krzych. In his words: Post-Cage radio show, and ruled by Romano Krzych / O Reche Modo , Rádio Nuda restores the extraordinary and almost sickly musical bloom of our time to what it is: a sound of the world. Rádio Nuda works against collections, catalogs, fetishism – against the devils of the commodity Playlist…

The Tape Review Show – vinyl edition with Shangorilla Records

The show opens with an in-depth interview. How will Brexit affect one of our station masters? Is this the end of Radio On? Will Adrian S. be put on a train to Poland? We muse over capital punishments, the beheading of David Cameron, french boeuf in Great Britain, the end of the internet, round rooms, dreams. We play tracks from the albums that were generously sent to us by Shangorilla Records. We describe and discuss the albums. And so much more, of course. You want to submit your works or…

Dai Coelacanth – Suzi threw her Panther into the Weeping Well

in the trenches they can’t find a decent tape machine. It was hot in there I was sweating like a pig. The director wanted more action but he expressed himself at half speed. Panther Bird ignored him. We had been filming the same scene for thirty years. There was nothing I could say. I have never felt so utterly useless. Like a hat. Like gravy. Gasping for breath. Adjusting my wig.   You want to submit your works or tapes/CDs/Vinyls released by you or your label? Learn how to submit. *…

Dai Coelacanth – Nancy talks to the Crayfish

Nancy is back again. But who is she? Words. Phrases. Chants. Sounds from a distinct world. The Supremes…why? Follow Dai on his new adventure. In his own words: “Nancy was always forgetting who she was. Sometimes she thought she was a large caterpillar crawling along the surface of an apple. She was drowning in bad habits but she was good with eggs. Growths are growths. Rats are rats. Rats have been in my pocket. I’ve got nothing left but eggs. I was cutting my hedge with teeth. It’s Sunday morning….

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. November 2018 in Berlin. Emmanuel Rébus was on a short visit. I had asked a sound colleague if we (half-Diktat) could do a short set as an opening on an evening organised by him. Said colleague…
