As part of WOWDY Week (Takoma Radio’s fall fundraiser), DJ Mackie will be digging deep into musical lost treasures from the great state of Texas. Everything is BIG in Texas and we hope that this year’s fall fundraiser will also be BIG in terms of both donations and love for the station.
Tune in at 9am on Saturday, October 27th to hear obscure ditties by lost Texas legends like The Chapparals from Houston and Roky Erickson’s first group The Spades plus the out-there sounds of Legendary Stardust Cowboy and Daniel Johnston, among others. The program will also explore the legacy of the International Artists record label and some of the important venues that brought back older musicians from an early time, like Mance Lipscomb and Lightning Hopkins: both influential Texas players.
And if you can tune in Saturday on 94.3 FM, you can listen to archived LOST TREASURES episodes at:

On Lost Treasures, this Saturday, October 11th…
DJ Mackie leaves no stone unturned in digging deep into the underground, beneath the surface of the known music industry recordings and getting to real people music! In his quest to find the best in obscure and lost recordings, this week DJ Mackie will be celebrating the sounds of Apple and the Three Oranges (L.A.), British renegade Rick Heyward, 70s sensations Silk & Silver, and the Muzzy Band, among others. Tune in Saturday morning at 9am for music that you won’t hear anywhere but on WOWD – or catch us via streaming at Takomaradio.org

The great multi-instrumentalist and jazz icon Andrew White joins DJ Mackie on Lost Treasures this Saturday, 9/29 to celebrate the 47th anniversary of ANDREW'S MUSIC: the influential label he started in 1971 on John Coltrane's birthday. Lost Treasures will be digging into Andrew White's vast catalogue of music and talking in-depth with this living legend who has graced the Washington, DC scene since his undergraduate days at Howard University when he emerged on the scene with the JFK Quintet, who released two important jazz albums on Riverside.
Also in studio will be local archivist and historian Ray Barker, who has collaborated with Andrew White in local programming. WOWD DJ and Rhizome promoter Steve Korn will also be on hand to discuss Retro(per)spective: a new exhibit at Rhizome on artist run spaces in DC.
IN LIGHT OF HURRICANE FLORENCE: PRESERVING TREASURES FROM THE DIRTY SOUTH
Here's the episode from this week:
In light of Hurricane Florence and its imminent landfall, DJ Mackie digs deep into the musical memory of the Carolinas and Georgia this week on Lost Treasures. Featured musicians include the lost-and-now-found-sounds of Robert Lester Folsom from GA, the audacious audio of Esquerita from SC, the psych sounds of Bow Street Runners and other sixties sensations from NC, and the funk fury of Carolina groups like Primitive and Mongoose – bands seemingly lost but not forgotten on Lost Treasures!
This Saturday at 9am on 94.3 WOWD FM or streaming at www.takomaradio.org
Lost Treasures on WOWD 94.3 FM welcomes music impresario, musician, and Cuneiform label owner Steve Feigenbaum this Saturday, September 4th from 9am to 10am.
40 years ago in the environs of Silver Spring/Takoma Park, Steve Feigenbaum and friends started up their own independent record label: Random Radar Records. Releasing cutting edge records, avant-rock, and other music considered “outside” of the mainstream, Random Radar Records launched the music careers of many area musicians (like The Muffins and Mars Everywhere) and also helped international artists (like UK’s Art Bears) to distribute their unique sounds to the world.
Steve Feigenbaum will be in-studio to discuss the formation of Random Radar, to reflect on the DC music scene from that time, and to listen to some of the music released on Random Radar Records. Tune in this Saturday to Lost Treasurers to hear more about this influential record label that was an important part of the independent music scene in the 1970s.
