Radio On Parachutes

This show comes from the deep archives of Radio On. It dates back from the time that we were a nomadic radio station. You will hear mention of cannibal caniche, a web radio based in Paris that hosted us on a couple of occasions. You will here a vintage Shephard/Van Alebeek talking about parachutes, hair, flowers, seeds, punk, the future, and, and, and. The talks, dialogues, lectures melt into short stories, become radiophonic pieces and go back to ordinary topics again. You want to submit your works or tapes/CDs/Vinyls released…

Dai Coelacanth – Love Station Yaba

Dare to listen. Dai to listen. Scraps, magnetic tape filth, hoarse voices, 21st century leaks, brutalist tapes, concrete footprints, yesterday’s news. A huge new collage, harsh sound poem by Dai Coelacanth. Your speakers never sounded so true to life. in Dai’s words “There’s something I forgot to tell you. It’s about a memory. The fair was in town and I was going to go with a neighbour … but she died in a horrific accident. Down by the river where the construction work is going on. New buildings for new…

Radio On – Never Ending Radio

This show is by Radio On’s founding fathers Adrian Shephard and Rinus Van Alebeek. It surfaced from our deep archives only recently. The show was recorded a very long time ago. Adrian and Rinus were on a mission. They did not have any other choice. A snowstorm had hit Berlin. Snow fell down for weeks on end. Big masses of snow blocked the door and the windows. They didnot have a possibility to leave the house. So they started a never ending radio show to kill the time. They discover…

31.May 2018 at 21.00 Berlin Time – The Nikolas Schreck Show with the author Simon Wells

A new show by Nikolas Schreck, best to be described and announced in his own words. One side note on Simon Wells. It is not this Simon, that Nikolas has talked to, though it might have been interesting to hear Schreck on Schrek. The author Simon Wells, who you will hear in the interview, is hard to find. His books, however, are one click away. Word to Nikolas, “Tune in, Turn on and Drop Out to The Nikolas Schreck Show as we take you on a time travel trip to swinging…

Radio On Lost, a radioplay by Adrian Shephard and Rinus Van Alebeek

From the depths of the Radio On Archive comes a radio show by Shephard and Van Alebeek that probably never reached any listener at all. What starts as an outburst of total confusion evolves into a radioplay, in which Shephard and Van Alebeek become radionauts lost in space. Their only salvation is to follow the radiowaves. They go down in a cosmic storm of voices, end up in distant civilisations, transform into radio particles, pick up conversations, but they never seem to find ground. Comes with a haunting sound track….

The Secrets of Alice Berg -FranceCulture by Adrian Shephard and Rinus Van Alebeek

Back in the year 2009 the Neukölln area of Berlin was still a dirty neighbourhood. Hardly anyone wanted to live there. Apartments were cheap; the bars were the same as ever, for the locals, the typical eckkneipe. This zone of Berlin was not hip at all, and the word hipster, the attitude and fashion style had still to be discovered and introduced. Basement concerts had a strong sense of prohibition. Adrian Shephard and I (=Rinus Van Alebeek) had been doing radio since the year 2006. We had no connection to…

New! Anne F. Jacques – Sounds for Post Peak Oil, episode 4

Canadian sound explorer Anne F. Jacques has finished her European séjour and is now back in Montréal where the snow sounds crisp and clear. Before she returned to her hometown, she went up to the French-Swiss border to record drifting particles. Sounds for Post Peak Oil -4 is part of an ongoing series of abstract RadioPlays that Anne produces exclusively for Radio On. In her own words “Cows eating grass near the Centre d’Européen de Recherche Nucléaire at the french-swiss border; kicking a rock on a roof; various electrical hums,…
