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,…

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…

Simon Wade, in Berlin on a visit and Adrian Shephard talked in our Radio On studio with their long time friend Jill Newman. The starting point of the talk is the Berlin connection.

She talks about the people she met in the post-punk days in Berlin, and what happened one Christmas day very long ago. The second…

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…
