Out soon: Datscha Radio’s festival documentation “Plots and Prophecies”! And of course we’ll gather in the garden to celebrate :)

The booklet features five essays by the editors, each offering her personal perspective on radio, gardening and the topic of the day; author Rafik Will contributed a most insightful article on the event as it bloomed during those five days in August and there is poetry by our garden resident artist Hans Kellett.

Plenty of photos and illustrations too, and the best of it: It is bilingual! And hello, Artists and Supporters: get your free copies! If you can, straight from the garden party at the 28th!


We are looking forward to seeing you there –  let us know if you can make it: info@datscharadio.de

P.S. Last but not least: The audio archive is on its way into the digital universe. The first of our three audio casts “Midday Discussions”, edited by Niki Matita,  is available here: https://www.mixcloud.com/minimatika/datscha-radio-17-diskussion-am-mittag-zukunft-des-schrebergartens-niki-matita-g%C3%A4ste/

More shows will soon appear here (Thanks to Valeria Merlini!): https://www.mixcloud.com/datscharadio17/

Paradise Lost: City. While some of our cities want to embrace wilderness, allotment gardens are alternately flooded by rain or dried to dust by untimely persistent periods of heat. While blossoming trees are waiting in vain for pollinating bees and the Buddleja davidii lacks to attract butterflies, legions of hungry snails and larvae are gnawing down leaves and fruit – in case the fungi have left some of the latter.

Dear all, this a quick letter from the breakfast table at Datscha Radio 17. Cloudy sky, sun rays coming through and an early phone call from the streaming tech master AB: There is still an issue with our nightloop stream not having been played last night. We sincerely apologize!!!! This minute our studio tech gulps down his coffee to check and fix this problem.
