In recognition of February's African-American History month, DJ Mackie will be digging deep to find some of the most radical and revolutionary records of the 1960s and 1970s. Channeling the rhythms of historic black nationalism in America, LOST TREASURES will feature the sounds of such innovative songwriters as Gil Scott Heron, Sun Ra, Gylan Kain (of the Last Poets), Nikki Giovanni, Amiri Baraka, and other musicians and cosmic poets who call upon ALL people to change for the better.
In commemorating the life and legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Lost Treasures will feature a special program focusing on soul and funk music that emphasizes social justice and change. DJ Mackie is excited to have special guest DJ Bargeman (one of the assistant principal at Wilson High School) to spin important "music with a message," starting with Sam Cooke's influential "A Change is Gonna Come."

Lost Treasures is excited to host award winning singer-songwriter Barry Louis Polisar in studio this Saturday.
Beginning in the mid-1970s, Polisar began writing his unique and clever songs, many of which are geared towards “children of all ages.” From the Maryland suburbs of DC with his independent Rainbow Morning Music label, Polisar released over eight LPs and many more CD recordings, books, and products. One of the most famous children songwriters in the second half of the 20th century, Polisar found additional fame when his song “All I want is you” was featured in the wildly popular film JUNO.
DJ Mackie will speak to Polisar about his roots in the DC area, his large catalogue, and the development of his music over the years.
Tune in this Saturday, January 5th at 9:00am on 94.3 FM WOWD or online at:
