On Memorial Day weekend (Sat, 5/28) Lost Treasures explores the absurdity of war with obscure tracks from the 1960s through 2010, with music from America and far away places like Ukraine and Japan. Songs by Love Sculpture, Eli Radish, and Red Krayola, to name a few. Locally at 94.3 FM + streaming at www.takomaradio.org
My friend Brian asked me to guest DJ his show on NTS, the internet radio station headquartered in London. For this special edition of The O'Brien System, I'll be spinning rare psych tracks from Turkey, Greece, Thailand, Japan, France, the UK and Ukraine. Plan to have Brian return the favor soon and guest host Lost Treasures!
