Agnès Pe – Mitt Paté #30, MP5

sparrows on the wooden floor of my balcony. bread crumbs. their beaks hit the boards. an empty honey jar next to the plants. wasps get drunk and lay motionless on the bottom. A grey day A day for a something A something to remember A something that hurts. Sounds live behind walls. the good thing about the internet is that it erases all the information of the non-internet world. a new era of great explorations draws near. Sounds live in headphones. mute. Playlist MITT PATÉ #30 MP5 UV – exp…

Alan Dunn & Derek Beaulieu – (drowned out by traffic noise): a, A Novel

Alan Dunn, based in Leeds, works with students, teaches and produces great works of sonic art. His students learn how to make radiophonic works, radio plays or plain sonic weirdness that after all is not that weird at all. Alan’s solo works and his work with students are regularly broadcasted by our radio station. For this production he teamed up with Derek Beaulieu. Also in a, A Novel Alan evokes the sehnsucht that was so typical of 1980s post-punk music in the UK. Other elements are added that will make…

Don Campau – Museum Pieces

Don Campau is with Radio On for only a brief moment in his career. But I can’t remember when he did his first show for us. His choice had always been from his vast collection of cassettes. In his shows you could listen to sounds from the 1970s up to the now. One day Don cleared his garage and sent all the cassettes to Zeppelin City in Germany. This was not the end of the world. Don took us on a journey to the past and programmed some shows he…

Anne-F Jacques – Sounds for the Post-Peak Oil 14

Anne-F Jacques is with us for a number of years now. Based in Montreal, Anne’s dealings with sound bring her to places all over the world. Time flies everywhere. We are glad that she came back to us on the wings of time with a very pleasing report from La Paz in Bolivia. In this new episode of the post-peak oil Anne-F guides us through streets and spaces of La Paz. And it’s a delightful and inviting tour. Bolivia seems just around the corner. In Anne’s words one month in…

June Crawford interview and live sets

June Crawford makes radio shows for Radio On. With regular intervals he sends his audio reports from his home base Montreal. In the last days of the Summer of 2018 he was on a visit to Berlin. He worked on his opera ‘Gun’ in an artist residency. Adrian Shephard, joined by Rinus Van Alebeek, received June in the Radio On studio. June brought some little sound makers and uses Adrian’s old electric guitar for some short sonic interventions. A lot of time was spent on talking. It starts with a…

Dai Coelacanth – RANDOM SEWAGE FROM A STRANGERS WIFE / YOU’RE A WIG, Mr MALIGNANT

Dai Coelacanth arrived a year ago. He had been on a holiday in Greece. It started then. Thinking while listening. Something happened. A man who was there when Mr. Sony sent his walkman to earth. They fell on every shop and in every home like children’s balloons who had gone the reverse way. He still has a walkman. Other people have a smart phone. Both walk the streets and talk freely into a microphone. Both transmit messages. Dai makes cassette walkman art. And I wonder if he is the only…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – Patterns

Look here, a show that speaks for itself. It starts with songs by a band that was sensational in the early years of youth culture. Nowadays you can wonder how the songs would come out of the vaporwave machine. Strange enough, or maybe not strange at all, LL has found a way to level the classics to all the other home-produced sounds he has brought to us all over the years. But have a look at the playlist. This is radio. What else. Classic Cassette Compilation 1. 48 Cameras –…

Radio On Beuys

On the dustiest shelf of the Radio On archives there are even recordings from shows that probably no-one heard. They are from the pre-history of our radio when Shephard and Van Alebeek first met somewhere in the hinterlands of East Berlin. Back then they still played music, but luckily after hardly one minute the tracks get interrupted by their stream of unconscious talking. Musicologist discussions, ponderings on heroin and an old evergreen determine the first half of the show. At the center there is a long series of questions about…
