Revolutions in Graphic Design by Alan Dunn

Says Alan Dunn: Since 2007 I have been collecting examples of people recording the word ‘revolution’ – archives, artists, students, children. Each generation seems to want to record it, for posterity, to sound like they want to change the world. I am interested in the sound of the word, how it is broken down and how it crosses almost every genre – pop, punk, reggae, techno, folk, metal etc. Says I (=Rinus van Alebeek) The result is like a long list of footnotes to an essay. We don’t have the essay….

Interview with Dmytro Fedorenko, after Minsk 2

One year ago we talked for the first time with Dmytro Fedorenko. He lived in Kiev and at that time the protest movement on Maidan square was making headlines all over the world. After the first talk there was a good reason for a second talk. After that interview the situation got worse as 100 protesters were killed by snipers. The president disappeared overnight. It was no reason to be happy; the people mourned about the victims of the snipers. In fact, a period of peace never came as Russia…

Russia’s War on Ukraine

Today Russian troops started to shell Mariupol. For an almost minute-to-minute account I suggest to follow Ukraine@war on twitter or visit his blog. Most probably a heavier attack will follow the coming days. To refresh your mind we will program our interviews with Dmytro and the lecture by Timothy Snyder. We spoke with Dmytro all through last year, and hopefully we can connect again in a couple of days. In these interviews you hear the different stages Ukraine went through, from the demonstrations on Maidan square up to a war…

Timothy Snyder – Ukraine, from Propaganda to Reality

It is tradition to publish lists of some sorts at the end of the year. Radio On will not present a list of what we think were our ten best programs, because we think all our programs were our ten best programs; neither do we have a top ten of quotes, songs or predictions. One series of programs that ran all through the year 2014 were our talks with Dmytro Fedorenko in Kiev. It started during the uprisings on the Maidan square. After that we heard about the killings, the…

Rinus van Alebeek – Overseas – interview w/ Dmytro Fedorenko, Life in Kiev during Wartime

This is the latest interview with Dmytro Fedorenko. We talked with him for the first time at the beginning of the year 2014 when big black smoke was rising up from the Maidan square. It was not our last interview. Dmytro was active during the fights, and saw the victims of the February killings by the Janukovich snipers at the distance of his hand. We spoke with him when Crimea was annexed and when war broke out in the east of Ukraine. We heard him after the downing of MH17….

From Maidan to MH17

At the beginnings of this year the King of The Netherlands met that person during the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. At the same moment Russian troops invaded Crimea. It was the start of the things that would come. Earlier this year there was a new wave of protests in Kiev. I didn’t pay too much attention to it, because people came to Maidan Square quite regularly to set up their tents and give voice to their dissatisfaction. But this time the protests became more fierce in expression and…

Rinus Radio Broadcast Company – ft Interview with Dmytro Fedorenko about East Ukraine

A couple of weeks ago I (Rinus Van Alebeek) stayed some days in the Oranien Studio. That was a good chance to interrupt the regular programs and go live on air. Over the years our archive with CD’s, Vinyl given by friends and Records found in the trash has grown extensively. I decided to play this music, and act as a normal DJ, given information on the tracks and, if possible, on the releases themselves. But it was also time to connect with our friend Dmytro Fedorenko in Kiev. We…
