Dai Coelacanth – Distant Aphid turn the wheel of scabs

Dai Coelacanth: “Elizabeth hated her brother. The family bought him at auction. When they got him home he was covered in a noxious dust. He had to live in the barn for the first three years. And now he was in the house. He had a room filled with rare antiquities. He drank blood straight from the sack. Mother gifted him shares in a successful worm farm. Father begged him for his blessings. What did Elizabeth get, as the true born, the rightful heir? They hired unskilled thugs to pull…

Sounds live in headphones. mute. Playlist MITT PATÉ #30 MP5 UV – exp…

Alan Dunn & Derek Beaulieu – (drowned out by traffic noise): a, A Novel

Alan Dunn, based in Leeds, works with students, teaches and produces great works of sonic art. His students learn how to make radiophonic works, radio plays or plain sonic weirdness that after all is not that weird at all. Alan’s solo works and his work with students are regularly broadcasted by our radio station. For this production he teamed up with Derek Beaulieu. Also in a, A Novel Alan evokes the sehnsucht that was so typical of 1980s post-punk music in the UK. Other elements are added that will make…

Don Campau – Museum Pieces

Don Campau is with Radio On for only a brief moment in his career. But I can’t remember when he did his first show for us. His choice had always been from his vast collection of cassettes. In his shows you could listen to sounds from the 1970s up to the now. One day Don cleared his garage and sent all the cassettes to Zeppelin City in Germany. This was not the end of the world. Don took us on a journey to the past and programmed some shows he…

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…

Brainhall Art Productions presents Alan Courtis

Andreas Glauser has been producing shows for Radio On since some years now. His Brainhall Art Productions have introduced us to a wide variety of artists via interviews, field recording projects, historic concert recordings, introductions to audio-zines, conceptual CDs. Listening to his shows is like entering a space where sounds and words buzz around your head like flies. In this show we hear Alan Courtis (wikiCourtis). He talks about his art, and plays examples of his latest releases for invisible city records and coherent states. Funny enough the names of…

The Nikolas Schreck Show – From Prussia With Love: Music to Spy By

Nikolas Schreck gets in the mood for radiodrama here on Radio On. As ever assisted by the mysterious Ania PsH and founding father Adrian Shephard, he pulls in a good deal of hard boiled pulp fiction to tell us a story. While the songs of singers and orchestra’s played back over a cheap hi-fi set slowly burn the brains of the secret agent, Nikolas and Ania get in the mood for cocktails, chandeliers and a good bowl of Russian borscht. Get that cigarette smoke out of your eyes and join…

Tapes from Istanbul – Adrian Shephard (August 2015)

When I listened to Tapes from Istanbul, through my headphones, I was thrilled from the very first steps that Adrian described. I had to think about this, because my excitement went beyond those feelings, which normally make my senses wobble when listening to anything audio. It was very clear, that something else was going on. The Istanbul Tapes tell a story, that we thought to have lost, somewhere around the time when television became a medium for the masses. Before that time, places were still exotic. And the main reason…
