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…

Agn̬s Pe РMitt Pat̩ number 10

Enter the big house and you know on forehand there is at least three rooms, where you’d like to peek inside. The first room is of a strange luminar quality. Colors seem to have faded; everything is in a glossy black and white, from the times that camera’s were still made by hand. A couple of men, one single woman seem to be frozen, show an eternal smile. There are reel to reel machines and a window that looks over the roofs of a big European city. The second room…

Lord Litter presents THE 14th DREAM OF DR. SARDONICUS

Lord Litter dedicates a complete show to The 14th Dream of Dr. Sardonicus, a festival in Wales. This is psychedelia for you. And probably taking some substances that are linked to the subculture, will make it easier to pronounce some of the names that appear in this list. And this might come in very handy, if you have intentions to visit the festival, and the screen of your navigation system looks like a liquid light show. You can always ask one of the Celts you meet on the road. As…

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,…
