After skipping Weltturbojugendtage this summer due to The Plague, the ever so positive TJR talked to the WTJT organizers about the status of next year’s worldwide Denim gathering, also explaining what led to the necessary cancellation and announced the planned Line-Up for WTJT 21.
Always keen on opening up new horizons for the TJ audience, TJR found an awesome new MVP patch in Australia, dug a little deeper only to come up with some interesting facts about Australia´s history and own racial issues. In the light of BLM, certainly worth a listen. Plus, we got the chance to talk to Electric Six´s Dave for an exclusive TJR interview - powered by TJ Moscow.
Even tough TJ is not a political organization per se, ignoring the current situation in the streets of the USA feels inappropriate to TJ Radio. Especially in the light of our TJ manifesto, that definitely states that we do not tolerate fascist or racist behavior within our group. We decided to take the mic and talk to Black Rage from TJ New London to ask him about his views, based on his personal experiences and knowledge. There are some rather questionable facts about the executive mode operandi revealed ass well ass some more than practical advice given - especially for TJ members who are politically active or are thinking about it.
When it comes to collecting Turbonegro´s audio legacy, no one beats the merits of TJ Satanica´s Max Motherfucker. If there´s a Turbonegro Vinyl World Champion, it´s gotta be TJ veteran Max who talks about old, unknown records, international pressings and the go-to platforms for your well deserved dose of the denim coated, black gold.
Let´s get us re-focused again. Let´s de-isolate for a moment and think of what bring the TJ the most intuitive, natural, curiously naive look onto our faces: a very well designed patch. If this patch even features a wonderfully designed burning church, loyal TJ Radio listeners know: there´s a lot to learn from here, there´s a real MVP cumming, a Most Valuable Patch and his very own story – powered by TJ Jorvik.
COVID-19 forces us to change our TJ habits in a big way. No more ass grabbing, hugging, tongue kissing, beer can and bottle sharing and – in the case of the B. Engel and Yours truly: changing our sweaty Kuttes in the pit. Well, desperate times call for desperate measures. TJR´s own Niels Ronni Deppe takes a look at a new trend within TJ, virtual Zoom-parties that take place all over and has sailor and sailorettes virtually drinking for 14 hrs. straight.
Due to the current situation surrounding Coronavirus, TJR called The MILF Hunter, president of TJ Milano, to talk about the challenging situation of the people in Northern Italy and shares some real relevant insights and recommendations with and FOR the TJ audience. Please listen.
When it comes to love, the Turbojugend seems like a super cozy, misty and fruitful darkroom for hardcore gay sailormen worldwide. But how about mingling men and women, sometimes referred to as “normal” relationships, what if a Sailor falls in love with a non-Sailorette, outside of the Denim universe, with a “regular” woman? TJ Brisbane´s Lugswaffe and his lovely sweetheart The Cheeky Butcher talk about the process of falling in love with each other AND the Turbojugend and explain the key elements of entering Turbojugend because of the crazy little thing called LOVE.
What started out with shy button and naïve patch trading of TJ devotionals has – over the years -turned into a crazy merchandise war of highly specialized and often expensive items from one TJ to another.
TJR´s Tschebesta took the mic and talked to the UNDISPUTED World Heavyweight Champion of TJ Merch – the one, the only: Two-Hawks of TJ Aberdeen! Plus: impressions of the TJ New Year party in St. Pauli!

TJ Brisbane´s Lugswaffe grabbed the mic and talked to TJ Melbourne´s El Comandante about the upcoming event and explains what makes this 4-day TJ music festival so special and definitely worth considerung for 2020. Plus: Tschebesta & his very broken voice talks TJ in Russia with TJ Moscow’s VicAsso Bakwerko. TJR has the world covered – in this huge 1 hr ChristmASS episode!
