It’s the Begilufin COMMUNICATION Special PART 2!
Tonight your hosts Ziv Lode and Dan Abbott bring you another hour of international music themed around COMMUNICATION! Last week’s show was, quite fittingly, plagued by communication problems on-air. Frantically scribbled notes, faulty switches, verbal slip-ups and strange hearing-related issues. Possibly a minor landmark in modern underground concept radio.
Tonight we bring you the un/usual kaleidoscope of mutated international music themed around COMMUNICATION, beginning the show with a very special tune from 1917, possibly the most ancient piece of music we’ve broadcasted to date. Unless of course we’re beset by further COMMUNICATION problems.
As always, this is live, spontaneous and rather silly radio - but tune in tonight and by the end of the show your ears will be both dancing and a tad more experienced than they were previously. Or just bruised.

Begilufin is an hour long radio show broadcast live twice a month from the heart Berlin on the station Pi Radio. On Begilufin we play a wild, confusing mess of international sounds, stretching from the birth of recorded music to something we heard two days ago. We do our best to ignore the normal, accentuate the weird, and ignore borders, boundaries and time-zones. Each show revolves around a central theme and then we surprise each other (and you, dear listener) with our selections live on air.
Since you ask, ‘Begilufin’ is a Hebrew word meaning intoxicated, inebriated, drunk, sozzled or smashed - a perfect description of the delirious off-centre mix of crazed music we like to spin on the show or indeed the effect it might have on your ears.
Begilufin was created by Ziv Lode in 2010. Ziv was joined by Dan Abbott a couples of years later after a chance meeting in a kindergarten playground revealed a mutual love of the music of Erkin ‘The Turkish Hendrix’ Koray.
