Interview with Fillipp Vingerhoets

Fillipp Vingerhoets is one of the persons involved with Bohemian Drips. That’s the first thing you will hear in the interview that Adrian Shephard and Rinus Van Alebeek conducted with the young Bavarian. A needle injecting a bonbon with strange drops, tiled secret bunkers, playing undanceable music to danceable people, Berlin in the middle of the night, sounds in space or sounds in castles, Turks on the run and alarming goat stories. It is all in this two hour interview. Plus more. Tracks are played from the vinyl that Fillipp…

The Wirebender presents a show in three parts: Gt Moore, David Harrow and Little Roy

A new show from our man in London, Simon Wade. Interviews, live sessions, electronic dub and a fine new release are the key features of this three part show.   In Simon’s words Gt Moores “Utopia” vinyl cut on the Jah Works label is one of my dj staple tracks, always in my box. As it always stood apart? Only recently I understand why, as it has one foot in the English folk scene and another in the roots reggae scene of the 1970’s jamaican dub scene. Nearly 40 years…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – Welcome to the Lord Litter Café

Where-in Lord Litter virtually reconstructs a bar in Berlin. It’s a place where people talk more and smoke less. There is no wi-fi signal, and the clients are encouraged to leave the smart phones and tablets at home. Old friends talk about old times, and when the new times press their noses against the window, also the spleen of today gets discussed over a glass of beer. The music that sounds over the thirty year old loudspeakers is produced in a garage or in a small home studio. No majors…

Jason Honea meets Nikolas Schreck

Jason Honea, who gave us so many fine hours with his Brave Ear shows, met up with Nikolas Schreck. California born and raised Nikolas Schreck’s father was a manager of famous and less famous musicians. Count Basie put young Nikolas’s hands on the keyboard of the piano. Vincent Price had some talks with him. In this show Nikolas elaborates on the notion of sonic magic and the song as a micro-cosmos. We hear an eye-witness account of a punk concert evening in Los Angelas’ legendary venue the Whiskey-a-Go-G0, and a…

Disastronaut in Berlin – Interview with Jeff Reed

Jeff is becoming a regular on our radio. He comes over from the UK for a blitz visit to Berlin, and always, and nicely so, ends up in our studio talking with his old friend Adrian Shephard. Now, if these were cold war times, and the calendar would say 1973, and the thermometer would indicate -32ºC, we could probably tell different stories about Jeff’s visits to West- Berlin. Because, why would someone visit West-Berlin so often and only for 36 hours, if DDR is everywhere around you with their spies,…
