Alexei Borisov – interview, live moments, new sound works

Whenever Alexei visits Berlin we have the honor to welcome him at the Radio On studio. Alexei lived in two countries, but didn’t have to travel to do so. Born and raised in Moscow in the Soviet Union, he became a citizen of the Russian Federation at the end of last century. That’s a lot of history. Alexei talks about revolutions, every day life, travelling in the Soviet Union, how Moscow changed over the years, his experiences as a musician and underground artist. New works are played. Testcard, Rinus Van…

Today, 7. March – Live Show

This evening at 19.00 Berlin time we will go live on air. For the first half hour we ( Adrian Shephard and Rinus Van Alebeek) will be joined by Michal Libera. Michal might talk about his Neapolitan experiences with ghosts, skulls, neighbours, bars and songs, but he might also talk about future works on sounds, memories and history.  The rest of the show we will open some envelopes and play sounds that arrived in our postbox. You want to submit your works or tapes/CDs/Vinyls released by you or your label?…

The Tape Review Show – vinyl edition with Shangorilla Records

The show opens with an in-depth interview. How will Brexit affect one of our station masters? Is this the end of Radio On? Will Adrian S. be put on a train to Poland? We muse over capital punishments, the beheading of David Cameron, french boeuf in Great Britain, the end of the internet, round rooms, dreams. We play tracks from the albums that were generously sent to us by Shangorilla Records. We describe and discuss the albums. And so much more, of course. You want to submit your works or…

June Crawford – Garden.95 (January 2019)

A new sound report from Montrèal and beyond, in which the vocoder becomes the poet’s best friend. American folk music has reached its point of no return. The 22th century awaits somewhere at the horizon. New friends get introduced. Borders disappear. June says Tooth got took out; Can’t feel my face. Drove 16 hours in a day. Called for the daily prayer at that payphone off 87, but the lady vanished – now it’s just an automated voicemachine. Does God hear pre-recorded prayers? Does God use the internet? Anyway —…

Don Campau – The Echolocation of Eternity

Don Campau, look him up here.  Tune in to his radio show if you happen to be on a road trip in California. Stay with us for his more archive oriented shows. For this show Don has dug up mainly seven inches: singles. Energetic, joyful, liberating, incredible. The rich history of the current underground culture, unnoticed by the main media, unnoticed by the main record companies, unnoticed by all those bright people who dump their beautiful blue consumer pearls into your life. Who cares? The plastic future is here. Now…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – Elektronisch

A gift by LL, a sublime show that puts contemporary avant-garde music and sounds in perspective. Listen to the tracks by A.G. Geige, an ensemble from Karl Marx Stadt in the former DDR. LL provides the link to a documentary, but wouldn’t it be a good idea if he could do a special on them, maybe have a guest at his studio as well? And what to think of the tracks from the Generator unlimited cassette release that close the show. A lot of voices from the past have proved…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – Dans La Rue

People working in the street, a new gaspipe, a van parked, doors open, loud techno for everyone. What a relieve to put on my headphones and listen to the new Lord Litter show. Songs in every gradation, introverted, nostalgic, fun, loud, weird and a nice interview over a cup of tea to round it off. You don’t find people working in your street everyday of course, but if you’d like to take a holiday from your daily environment then this show is the place to go.   1. The NoMen…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – Welcome to the Lord Litter Café

Where-in Lord Litter virtually reconstructs a bar in Berlin. It’s a place where people talk more and smoke less. There is no wi-fi signal, and the clients are encouraged to leave the smart phones and tablets at home. Old friends talk about old times, and when the new times press their noses against the window, also the spleen of today gets discussed over a glass of beer. The music that sounds over the thirty year old loudspeakers is produced in a garage or in a small home studio. No majors…
