Markus Stein – The German Voice of David Hasselhoff, Documentary about the German Unification

Markus Stein is also DJ Schlucht who for many years has hosted a weekly show called DIY Church. It was perhaps the most informative show, word and sound-wise about the manyfold dispersion of so-called underground music. I use the term ‘underground’ because you would never get to know about the music and the artists if you’d stick to official printed and state financed media. The German Voice of David  is a documentary about the German Unification. Markus talked with a couple of persons, (West-) Berliners and ex-DDR citizens. Each one of them, from memory,…

Unplanned #3 by Adrian Shephard

Adrian Shephard’s innovative new show for Radio On risks to come to an end due to pressure by hundreds of unsatisfied listeners who classified his first shows as STUPID, full of lies and a total waste of time. It would be a real pity to lose this show. With very little means Shephard establishes a connection between a present and a past outside every known space-time zone. Not only do events from the past re-appear to us as in a cristall ball, Shephard also manages to grasp the essence of…

Post Peak Oil #9 – Anne F Jacques

A new programm by Anne F Jacques, a result of her visit to and tour of Japan. Hear an impressionist report of that journey: visions in sound. Anne’s words “Slurping soba at a stand-up noodle bar under the train station; getting ready to play with my newly met friend Takamitsu in his one-piece apartment, while eating mushroom-shaped cookies; various intersections and street corners; an excerpt from an improvisation with takahiro Kawaguchi and Makoto Oshiro at Ftarri in Tokyo; and rolling on disjointed tiles on my bicycle.” Please check the Schedule…

Adrian Shephard – The Unplanned Show #2

The Unplanned Show is in so far unplanned that there is no script and no premonition of what comment or reaction can be expected from Adrian, instigator, oracle, protagonist and narrator in one, though not at the same time. The method is quite simple. Take a box full of mini-discs with hardly any signs on it that could reveal the content. Play tracks randomly. Listen and talk about the images or memories they invoke. What you get is the magic of radio, where past and present mingle and the mini-disc…

Höllentag Spezial by Jeff Surak

Höllentag Spezial was made with one record player, one recorder and a lot of records. Jeff played locked grooves. If the needle is caught in a locked groove it plays only the piece of music or sound that can be captured in a full spin. The result is a series of repetitions, that can be experienced as mechanic or trance-inducing or simply musical. Especially for its repetitious form, the mechanical element prevails, and links the piece, thus, to the pre-war experiments when modern composers tried to reproduce the sounds of…

Rinus van Alebeek -Overseas- interviews w/Dinah Bird and Barbara Lazara, Music by Larry Mondello Band

In the second episode of -Overseas- I talk with Dinah Bird about her release on Gruenrekorder, called A Box of 78s. It is basically a story about a box that was bought some hundred years ago. The box contained records, 78rpm records and the first thirty years of its existence it was in use on Salt Spring Island, just of the coast from Vancouver. Dinah went there, with the box and a portable gramophone player. She came back with a lot of sounds and a couple of stories. Some of…

Lepke B – Elvis Christmas

Lepke B has been on our Radio a few times now. You can hear him talk about the 60s in England in coversation with Mrs Shephard. The Wirebender featured a live show by him. Lepke B. works with old and found CDs. A perfect ear, and a hideously omnilogic memory of pop tunes, he mixes, cuts, collages, loops with such remarkable ease that you get the impression the songs have finally reached their final destination. In this special show for Radio On Lepke B turns Elvis Christmas songs into the…
