Bob Dylan turns 78 years old this Friday, so to celebrate DJ Mackie will be digging deep in the vinyl vaults to find the best + most obscure + worst Dylan cover songs. Perhaps covered more than any other American artist, Dylan has been covered by many other artists and there are lots of his songs out there, many of which never made it to the digital age. Tune in to LOST TREASURES this Saturday, 5/25 at 9am on 94.3 FM or worldwide at takomaradio.org
This Saturday, May 11th, DJ Mackie is on the air for two hours: first, covering for Robin’s Radio show from 8-9am and then Lost Treasures from 9-10am. In keeping with Robin’s excellent radio format, DJ Mackie will be playing some of his favorite children’s songs plus feature a mom’s music set for Mother’s Day. Lost Treasures will explore all things MOOG, focusing on obscure tracks that demonstrate the power and beauty of moog synthesizers.
As always, tune in locally at 94.3 FM or streaming online at takomaradio.org
In 1976, local DC folk musician Charles Browning released his debut LP: A Choirboy’s Lament. As singer-songwriter and guitarist on the record, Browning appears alongside musical collaborators Emmylou Harris and Mike Auldridge (among others). Over forty years later, Browning has released two more albums in recent years.
This Saturday (4/27) at 9am, DJ Mackie welcomes Charles Browning to LOST TREASURES on WOWD-FM to explore his debut LP, to talk about the DC music scene in the 1970s, and to share other memories. Barry Louis Polisar, who appeared on LOST TREASURES several months ago, will also be in studio to be a part of the conversation with his friend Charles Browning.
This Saturday’s LOST TREASURES will focus on solo acoustic/primitive guitarists.
In town this week, special guest Kinloch Nelson will be in studio to perform and to talk about his newest record release with Tompkins Square, “Partly On Time: Recordings 1968 – 1970.” These recently unearthed recordings are a collection of tunes that were recorded in the studios of Dartmouth College’s radio station before 1970s.
I will also be hosting his concert on Friday, April 12th at 8pm at Rhizome DC (6950 Maple St NW). $10 suggested donation at the door.
Hailing from Rochester, NY, Kinloch Nelson started playing folk and rock in the early 1960’s. In the 1970’s he studied classical guitar with British guitarist/composer Stanley Watson, then jazz guitar with Gene Bertoncini at Eastman School of Music, and music theory at the University of Rochester. In 1973, he began teaching at The Hochstein Music School where he was on the faculty for twenty-five years, and spent nights moonlighting for decades with country, jazz and rock bands - all the while exploring solo fingertstyle guitar. With others he co-founded the Guitar Society of Rochester in 1985, which during its ten-year run presented many of the world's greatest guitarists of the period. Despite his small discography Nelson’s Youtube catalogue is extensive, due to his many recent performances on handmade guitars at guitar festivals featuring many of the world’s top tier modern day guitar builders. Nelson has also authored a book, Alternate Guitar Tunings.
