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…

Radio On – Getting to Sleep

This show comes from the deep archive of Radio On. It is part of an attempt to produce a 24hour radio show. Adrian Shephard and Rinus Van Alebeek play poptunes, discuss 1980s, executions, how to die, the guillotine, but then, all of sudden the narrative drifts off. Sleep! A surprise phone call marks the end. You want to submit your works or tapes/CDs/Vinyls released by you or your label? Learn how to submit. * Please check the Schedule for broadcast hours/days

Radio On – Never Ending Radio

This show is by Radio On’s founding fathers Adrian Shephard and Rinus Van Alebeek. It surfaced from our deep archives only recently. The show was recorded a very long time ago. Adrian and Rinus were on a mission. They did not have any other choice. A snowstorm had hit Berlin. Snow fell down for weeks on end. Big masses of snow blocked the door and the windows. They didnot have a possibility to leave the house. So they started a never ending radio show to kill the time. They discover…

Agnès Pe – Mitt Paté (Tarzan and Lucy)

This collagist composition by Agnès has two main characters. You may hear something else. You may also follow the indications and listen behind and between the sounds. You can observe and consequently partake in an alchimist process. Meet Tarzan and Lucy. Tarzan John Clayton is born in the western coastal jungles of equatorial Africa to a marooned couple from England, John and Alice (Rutherford) Clayton, Lord and Lady Greystoke. Adopted as an infant by the she-ape Kala after his parents died (his father is killed by the savage king ape…

Dai Coelacanth – A French Corpse is a delicacy on Mars

A knock on the door. At this hour. Who could that be. Full moon peeks in through the attic window. The plant recites Kierkegaard. Red light ceiling. A muted comedian. More insistent knocking on the door. Get up from the chair. The bottle falls down. Shock-relief: It’s empty. Ear to the door. Someone goes down the stairs, fast. An empty milk carton on the doormat. Apparently empty. A cassette tape wrapped in a piece of paper. It’s a letter. Dai Coelacanth is back from somewhere. But from where? And who…

Agnès Pe – Mitt Paté (Revolution)

The past and the future are like a blank canvas. You can put as many colors and images and abstract designs on it as you like. You can repeat this every day again, and every day the past and the future will look different. In a hypothetical past designs and icons, ideas and legends, belief systems and people had the power to give sense and guidance to individuals, a community or a population. In a hypothetical future none of this will happen anymore. In a hypothetical here and now, I…

Live Coverage of Fraction Bruit #17 in Loophole, Berlin

On Saturday 27th of May Adrian Shephard, one of the founding fathers of Radio On, will put on his camouflage clothes and swallow a blue pill. He will be teleported to his past. He will carry a small broadcasting device with him, because he needs to transmit sounds from an evening full of noises. Nobody will be able to recognise him, since he will be disguised as a ghost from the future. If there is any need for you as a listener to find out if their is still life…
