Radio On Brandstifter – Interview

On one of those normal anonymous mid-winter days in Berlin, when half the world is coughing and the other half is sneezing, on a day that the sun peeked through the clouds, and the U-Bahn trains were full of people who didn’t know where to go, and thus ended up travelling between stations, on such a mid-winter day that makes you think and hope that springtime is not far away, and that soon the rents might go down again, and Berlin will return to being a dirty poor town, without…

Zsolt Sörés, The Interview

The evening after he had performed together with Faust in the Collegium Hungaricum in Berlin, Zsolt came to our studio for a lengthy interview. He talked about his experiences with Faust, but above all he painted a vivid impression of the life of an artist as a young man in Budapest before and after the regime change in the years 1989-1990. Zsolt talks with great enthousiasm about all the new music that he heard and how this changed his life for ever. Time travelling, spending an evening with friends, music…

Jeff Reed – Disastronaut 36 Hours in Berlin, Interview

Before you start listening to the interview with Jeff Reed, who operates also under the moniker disastronaut, you might as well let go of all information you can find about him on the net. And if you have met him already, or belong to his circle of friends, then here’s a very nice portrait of him, a close-up made by Adrian Shephard, while Jeff was on a 36 hours visit to Berlin. Berliners, and those expats living in Berlin tend to forget about the near history. Yes, it is there, much…

Interview with Sudden Infant and their Chauffeur

On the occasion of their European Tour 2016, two members of Sudden Infant, (Joke Lanz and Christian Weber) and their chauffeur and merch man Mario Paserotti came to the Radio On Studio in Berlin. By meeting people, who don’t know anything about the sounds and music, that we present on Radio On, nor have any clue, who these people are that appear as guests on our shows, I have come to understand, that most of our programs are some kind of inside job. You are here, because you know, and not…

Adrian Shephard – Books and Corks

When in a train heading north, I saw headlines pass at the bottom of the screen. One of them said that a gigantic toxic cloud was drifting over Berlin. I had apocalyptic visions of people dying in the streets, and thousands and thousands on the road, who tried to escape a certain death. Never could I expect, that on that very day Adrian was leisurely discussing the fire, while tucked away in a bookshop somewhere in Neukölln. In Adrian’s words Every time when I visit Curious Fox English books in Neukölln,…
