Listen live on THF RADIO every Sat 1pm Central European Time

EPISODE 25 - 17/10/2020

Speaking from an unknown location in an apartment flat of via Flavia 87, 23900 Lecco (LC), Lombardy, Italy, Filippo Spreafico is joined by his mother, who mysteriously appears in her own apartment, where the young man is, out of the inexplicable and nostalgic act of visiting his family. Being the most beautiful country in the entire history of itself, Italy is measured in Scandinavian fjords in order to celebrate the pillaging of barbars who, through a long process of de-barbarification, brought democracy and the Erasmus student exchange program. We also learn the difference between a piano and a holographic system, which is microscopic to the untrained eye. This episode was prerecorded live with a delay of 25 milliseconds.

EPISODE 24 - 10/10/2020

This entire show is about the foundation of the city of Lyon, even if this is never mentioned. Grandfathers with social anxiety, comedians on a diet, predictable boring people failing at making surprises: this and much more in the first radio program transmitting directly from Vendémiaire, the first month in the French Republican calendar. Featuring Lena Stolby and Amelia Jane Hunter in the role of a mother of two who wants to be seen as looking for her missing children Milk and Money. Whether this is the last or the first episode of the season of Anything Goes in the magical THF station it does not really matter. We have dreamed and we have loved, then some of us listened to the show too.

EPISODE 23 - 03/10/2020

In this episode, we will not talk about machine learning, mostly because we can barely count until 23, a number that took scientists aback when discovered hiding between number 22 and 24. Comedienne Lena Stolby joins the live program at the radio, and this is why one can hear her speaking during the show. The "most meta" comedy sketch ever written is contained here, but it might have gotten out of hand and unfolded indefinitely beyond the limits of the show, escaping the laboratory and paralyzing the economy of our opponents. As Lena proposes that the production of weapons of mass destruction might be stopped by fighting "your mom", Filippo closes his eyes to understand what it feels like to do radio the way listeners hear it; it couldn't last long. This show contains staplers.

EPISODE 22 - 26/9/2020

For the ones who have a penchant for lizards or precious rocks: this episode isn't necessarily tailored for you! Celebrating an anniversary, not really sure which one, Filippo Spreafico unveils a bass drum beat that was never used by Ringo Starr. A usually unique love story between two people quickly escalates into a spy story in which the spier and the spied are caught in a vicious circle of spying, while the universe as we know it might just have become the universe as we don't know it. A few grammatical mistaeks don't tamper with an otherwise soul-oriented episode in an effort to remedy the consequences of the death of Pepin of Heristal, Duke of the Franks, on 16 December 714.

EPISODE 21 - 19/9/2020

Constricted by a time-space continuum slippage, Filippo Spreafico is forced to operate from the wrong USB stick containing ironic prayers to God for money in the form of Brazilian funk. Despite this week's laboring, we can only count 7 days in it (again!), somewhat confirming previous predictions. Cuckoos might be the next frontier of smart homes, and whilst new vaccines encouraging realism are being tested on positive thinkers and influencers, the effort remains the same: being able to swim in the normal prior to normality.

EPISODE 20 - 12/9/2020

Despite the overcrowded atmosphere of THF Radio, Filippo Spreafico still manages to obtain information about the epistemological meaning of 'Italo Disco' from an octuagenarian passer-by. While religions are losing followers to Tinder filmmakers, some still propose confessional click-bait, surely unbeknownst to the art fair customers passing by. Empirical evidence shows that scientists don't know that standing with a mask is infintely more dangerous than sitting without a mask.

EPISODE 19 - 5/9/2020

This week's episode was broadcasted live but failed to be recorded due to the poor state of Filippo's laptop and a setup that was obsolete in the year 2004 (just a random year, really). Have fun not listening to this show!

EPISODE 18 - 29/8/2020

In this week's episode, Filippo Spreafico analyses the current sociopolitical climate change with a credit card, blaming herbivorous dinosaurs. Russian hackers are safeguarding the right not to have rights, meanwhile in San Francisco native Americans only like to be called like that in coffeeshops and in front of small monuments. Despite the effort of numerous advertising agencies to shift our attention to the printed press, cars have better chances to enter our homes and sharpen our knifes (excuse the pun). The show was broadcasted live from Rome, but if I hadn't told you, you would not have noticed.

EPISODE 17 - 22/8/2020

Leap year = 17 is not a mathematical formula but a cultural standpoint valid only in Italy. While exploring British culinary delicacies (such as sausages made out of real bits of leftovers from the metallurgic industry), we discover that eggs make better eggs than chickens do. A reckless comparison of the Western Roman Empire with West Indies spurs the non-existence of a post-environmentalist painting, as the current crisis is forcing subtitlers to look for employment as typewriters in the regime. Have I convinced you yet to listen to this episode? Or do I need to tell you that you can now buy your own bankruptcy through an app and that a famous artist pulled music out of his arse 500 years ago? I guess I don't.

EPISODE 16 - 15/8/2020

Unaware of the tribolations of time, Filippo Spreafico manages to unforcefully shrink one hour into 45 minutes. Newly discovered Republican raccoons are already facing extinction, while Pepin the Short celebrates Ferragosto, the holiday that confirms that the Roman Empire was built on vacations and spare time. Making sure not to body-shame the moon, we discover that 1 in 4 people might be turning into slot machines. Overall, a banger.

EPISODE 15 - 8/8/2020

What is an Italian living abroad if not a sublimation of Italianity? Are bees stuck in sweet pastry on purpose? Is exiled King Juan Carlos now a Prince? Why the capitalization and is the cameo of Alessandro La Spada a hint? Is the waiting of pleasure better than pleasure itself? Not with Filippo Spreafico, offering you his mind on a silver platter so that you can feel saner than what you actually are; overall, a pleasant experience.

EPISODE 14 - 1/8/2020

This week's episode boldly asserts that all sentences are weak. Filippo Spreafico challenges the space-time continuum of THF Radio and proposes that in the current environmental-cum-cultural crisis, bicycles should have a life of their own. You think this show is a niche, and you'll be right, because the world is a niche. Also, humanity might be a hindrance to humanity itself.

EPISODE 13 - 25/7/2020

Comedians in Berlin are starting to get loose again, so comedienne and storyteller Amelia Jane Hunter joins quicksilverish Filippo Spreafico, injecting a 'heroic' dose of her magnificence into the show. Also, socially distanced futures and hearts that are still broken meandering in the concupiscient world of Berlin's dungeons; and masks might help you shut your mouth about it.

EPISODE 12 - 18/7/2020

Straight from his own mind, Filippo Spreafico presents "Anything Goes", an audio pastiche made of talk, sketches and music dressed as a radio show that tries to stand the test of time. Time itself, an issue immemorial, is sublimated in the deepest recesses of the nervous system of a man who might as well be giving pearls to pigs; or, more simply, he has discovered a way to conceal his madness with a milder, more acceptable version of it. Recorded live at THF Radio.

EPISODE 11 - 11/7/2020

Comedian Filippo Spreafico, his sketches, his anachronistic music and his xaphoon. Korean cereals; Bastille; cold weather; lizards at LIDL and trappist monks.

EPISODE 10 - 4/7/2020

Entertainer and pseudointellectual Filippo Spreafico takes a train to Italy and travels through the pre-Alpine woods encountering tadpoles, mountain goats and reckless birds. The usual pastiche of music and voices ensues.

EPISODE 9 - 20/6/2020

Filippo Spreafico in his weekly show performed to one person and passers-by. Sketches, anachronistic music and tireless tirades; summer solstice; what virus?; people dressed as death; Beatles golden standard; Bill Gates holidays and late Italian trains. Plus, a special happy birthday.

EPISODE 8 - Cannot be found.
