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:
Let’s shoot out the lights!
