who was musical mentor to Holger Czukay, and continues on as a musical advisor in the hosts dreams. The program itself is named after Czukay’s solo album -and song- On the Way to the Peak of Normal.  Czukay is still living, making him a revered ELDER.

This program also honours the legacy of its original founder, Craig Kelly, whom founded the show in the mid-eighties. He himself took over from the show Another Music In A Different Kitchen (named after a Buzzcocks album). Later, throughout the nineties Carrie Nation was also on deck.

In the early years of this decade a few others joined the mission, including Justin and Android.  When Craig “retired” to his villa in Price Hill where he is mastering his demon of a piano, attacking it on the black and white keys, Justin took over. Brian “Thriftstore Leather” Riley was recruited to the cause for a time,  remaining until his move to Philadelphia in pursuit of other sonic activities.

The show continues to be guided in the future by its associate SPIRITS.
