Fonia Radio Show
For our 50th show, we welcomed Alexander Pehlemann. Alex, born in Berlin-Lichtenberg switched a career as a ringer for the army club “Vorwärts” Frankfurt/Oder with the wild world of pop culture in the GDR. Since 1993 he publishes “Zonic”, the magazine for “Kulturelle Randstandsblicke & Involvierungsmomente” and travels (very often eastwards) from Leipzig-Connewitz into the world, always checking for anything obscure and “schräg”.
He told us what brought him from Greifswald to Leipzig and all the up and downs and turn arounds he experienced in growing into the author, curator, DJ and networker he is today.
For the last show in 2018 we welcomed in the studio Dusty Maik from Leipzig! Maik who lived a long time in Jena, since several years he runs SORRADIO and the label SOLID ROTATION together with Gabriel, Wuh and Jules. He is also 1/2 of the pad-orchestra VOKODE, 33.3% of SUPERFIT and resident at MJUT in the heart of Leipzig.
A friendly hello to the 47th fonia radio show. This time we welcomed in the studio mister Smoking Joe. We talked with him about his first contact with actively played music, as a drummer for the band KIWISEX, his time in London, again as a drummer for BOOM FACTORY and then from 1996 on as musician for LOS BANDITOS.
