Anders Östberg – Time Signal Stations

Anders Östberg’s previous contributions were songs and sounds that were part of his vast record collection. That was then. His new show ‘Time Signal Stations’ could be the treasure he has brought back from an expedition deep into radio land. It must have been a voyage that took him beyond the borders of time, into otherworldy experiences that yet seem so very familiar. Maybe this, what you will hear in his show, is what the earth will sound like, long after it has disappeared. Anders says: What you will about…

June Crawford – Garden.95 (January 2019)

A new sound report from Montrèal and beyond, in which the vocoder becomes the poet’s best friend. American folk music has reached its point of no return. The 22th century awaits somewhere at the horizon. New friends get introduced. Borders disappear. June says Tooth got took out; Can’t feel my face. Drove 16 hours in a day. Called for the daily prayer at that payphone off 87, but the lady vanished – now it’s just an automated voicemachine. Does God hear pre-recorded prayers? Does God use the internet? Anyway —…

Radio On Guillotine

A show from the Radio On archives when Shephard and Van Alebeek transmitted from an ex-lightbulb factory in the former East Berlin. The format still included playing music. In this show you will hear music made by friends. Shephard and Van Alebeek talk about their favourite subject; living in the future and how to get there. Celebrities and their IQ and the guillotine as a business model are among the other topics. Shephard also cites from ‘The Book of 1101 questions” and discusses the answers. There is also a strange…

Radio On Stockhausen

Here’s a show from our archive, when Radio On was a two men venture based in an ex-DDR lightbulb factory. This show was first transmitted into inner and outer space via a secret connection to a server in the heart of Amsterdam. Radio On was a pirate station. Also in those days we hardly had any listeners. If you belong to the rest of mankind you can safely stay there. You can also listen to this show. Stockhausen, Sirius, Ufo’s, space, catholics, maharishi’s, the early days of the internet, masturbation…

June Crawford – Garden.95 (A Little Light Goes On)

June Crawford says: Aluminum / Alabaster; Staircase made of plywood, thought I saw you on the street. I had a copy of Corinthians in the car with me. I called out across the lake but it didn’t make it, hit the end and came back to me alone. You looked like you were laughing. The civic rattled on the highway all the way home, wasn’t made for this winter and it’s showing. Crack in the windshield’s growing all the time. Emptied the bank for rent today, I don’t know how…

Dai Coelacanth – Don’t lick the coins they will weigh you down

Dai Coelacanth arrived at Radio On in the year 2018. What is it? A prophet, a poet, a consumer gone mad? Is this the voice of Brexit? Is this a man who walked out of a Shakespearian play centuries ago and who still hasn’t found a stage that fits his words?Maybe his own words can illuminate you:“Last recording of 2018 and I say goodbye to my Cassette-corder TCM-150. The speaker was already broken. The microphone was bashed in. The motor was wheezing. And now there is nothing. It’s dead. I…

Rinus Van Alebeek – Letter from Berlin (Kling Klang)

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. Oktober 2018 in Berlin, lots of sunny days: One Sunday I went walking on Alexanderplatz, a few days later I visited a concert by Thilo Schölpen. He has arranged kraftwerk songs for piano. He played…
