Tonight, after a long break of 4 months, Het Schimmengebied is finally back with a nicely fermented new edition. Tune in live from 23.00 till 0.00 CET on Radio Tonka via 92.0 FM in The Hague, and in the rest of the world.

Expect a chilling blend of post-punk, shoegaze, dark wave, cold wave and other strangely fitting selections for these curious times we live in.

And a happy new year

Ja, dames en heren en enigerlei andere verschijnselen der Mensensoort, het nieuwe jaar is aangebroken, en een nieuw decennium komt daarbij ogenschijnlijk ook haar gezicht tonen. Maar nog altijd wordt deze donderdag van de maand de frequentie waarop Radio Tonka haar evangelie verspreid voorzien van de schimmige klanken van Het Schimmengebied, met uw eeuwige gastheer Duistere Bardo.

Wees ook een van de gelukkigen, en stel uw ontvangstapparatuur in op 92.0 FM in regionen van ‘s Gravenhagen, of bezoek daarbuiten via uw internettoegangsmachine de url van 23.00 tot 0.00 deze avond om van deze speciale klanken in des avonds te kunnen genieten.

Electronic Decay

The new month has started again, so that means that this Thursday night it is time for a new edition of Het Schimmengebied. This time with live music brought by your eternal host of the night, Duistere Bardo. Tune in to Radio Tonka on 92.0 FM in The Hague, or elsewhere in the universe on from 23.00 till 0.00 CET, and be immersed in the ever evolving sounds rising out of the electronic abyss staring at us back.


Tonight it’s time for another mysterious edition of Het Schimmengebied on Radio Tonka. And you know what that means. Turn on, tune in and drop out through 92.0 FM in The Hague or from 23.00 till 0.00 CET for deep soundscapes and devouring rhythms echoing in the the depths of this gritty night.

Dedicated to the Disenfranchised

Tonight it is time for a new edition of Het Schimmengebied. This evening will be dedicated to the terribly misunderstood professor of psychology Jordan Peterson.

As you might have noticed, Jordan Peterson was in the Netherlands this week to give a lecture at Room for Discussion at the University of Amsterdam. Peterson has been most well known for his critique of postmodernist left-wing academic culture, and his ability bring tears into the eyes of fragile white boys (and his own) with his advises for organizing ones own life by, for example, cleaning your room more often. For those who do not understand why Peterson’s so seemingly innocent and simple advises has stirred up such great controversy in progressive circles, I will select music and spoken word from a number of artists that themselves have reveled in heartfelt advice for the disenfranchised, such as Boyd Rice, Death In June and Burzum.

And last but not least, this show will include a retrospective of the Zeira project, including a guest appearence by Kiran Schatten, one of the original minds behind this project for revolutionary social reform.

So tune in to Radio Tonka from 23.00 till 0.00 CET through 92.0 FM in the occult world capital, or via
