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…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – Special Presentations

Lord Litter is one of our two DJ’s who make a kind of traditional form radio show: he talks about the artist, gives some information, and plays the song. But this is also Radio On. And overhere we like it when things make sense. Our radio is not about fast thougts-easy comments. That’s why we are very pleased to have LL with us. You might not hear it immediately, but he has a message to bring across. Here’s one example. Word to LL: “A bit of hope: The worst case…

The Tape Review Show with Loe Lof Lon (MuteAnt Sounds) and Flocculi (Tutore Burlato)

This edition of the Tape Review Show is a-typical. Apart from lecturing about fossiles in space we also review a CDr we received in the post. (Please remind, if you’d like to send something, to write ‘For Rinus’ somewhere on the envelope, and not at the top of the address list like in the picture above.) This is why: Gori Loeloflon wanted his music to be played by our radio very much. In fact he wants that everyone plays his music, and that’s why he gives it away for free….

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…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show #21 – Counterculture

LL dedicates an hour to counterculture. What is counterculture? In football it is the successor to catenaccio, the system perfected by Helenio Herrera. In society it is something different. Some of the captions down here can give an indcation. So can the music. But LL wouldn’t be LL without throwing a lifeline that connects the past with the present, and this lifeline, making a beautiful arch over the golden years of counterculture can serve as your rainbow. Enjoy. LITTER Legend 1. Mick Farren – Mona (A Fragment) Carnivorus Circus Part…
