Anders Östberg – Golden hued antique musical lithographs. A whimsical journey to Toytown. Music from my collection.

Anders Östberg is with Radio On since April 2014. Every seven months he sends a new show. Each show is built around a theme. The songs you hear are taken from his vast collection of records. Most of the time the shows are related to cultural or fashion movements in the 1960s and 1970s, movements that appeared for a brief moment and disappeared again, without hardly leaving a trace. Anders shows can be regarded as collections of oddities, but if you look and listen deeper you will see the image…

We Are The Walrus, Songs from my Collection by Anders Östberg

Many things can come to mind while listening to a seemingly endless repeat of the same song, albeit in slightly altered versions. A giant speaker in space could be on a drift, without any chance that the sounds will ever be heard; radical demonstrators could block the streets, a sound system on their truck that plays this song for weeks, while the demonstrators themselves have left the place as from the first minute. One can disrupt speeches, shopping malls, swimming pools, desert rides, asylums, schools and universities. The actions might…

Down To My Very Last Tear, Music from my Collection by Anders Östberg

Says Anders “Well, are you lovesick? You feel lonely and blue? Did your girlfriend or boyfriend left you with tears on your pillow? I have the medicine for you. Obscure heartbreaking 60’s US garage songs from my collection. Enjoy!!!” Says Radio On ” This is another exquisite selection from Anders’s collection that he delivers every seven months. All the songs you hear are hard to find, as it is hard to believe you ever heard them. It is a beautiful collection that will make your working space, living room or…

Anders Östberg – Clouds, Suns And Son Of God. Music from my collection

Anders Östberg has a vast collection of very rare and obscure records, many of them from the 1960s and 1970s. This is the fourth time he sends us an hour with music from his collection. This choice is all about obscure, homemade Jesus Music from the seventies. Says Anders “Even as an atheist, I must admit that the Devil does not always had the best music.” Playlist title – artist – album – (record label and #) – year of release – country: Intro – Whitewood – s/t – (Exotic…

ANDERS ÖSTBERG – SANTA CLAUS HIDES IN THE PHONOGRAPH. MUSIC FROM MY COLLECTION.

A special Xmas program by Anders Östberg, something he just had to do being a citizin of a country that has reindeers and the north pole within its confines. Are we not too subversive and too damn cool to deal at all with the big yearly celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, saviour of some factions of mankind? Or is an hour of Christmas songs of all sorts and dimensions on our radio a statement that the meme Christmas is a roadsign that points in various directions, be they…

Anders Östberg – Children, Elves and a Tree Person. Music from my Collection.

On the occasion of a new program full of rare psychedelia and assorted electronic sounds from the 60s and 70s Radio On rebroadcasts Anders first program that some of you might have listened to seven months ago. Odd, bizarre and strange is what you will get in Anders’ first show: “Children, Elves and a Tree Person, Music from my Collection.” Here’s the Playlist: (title – artist – album – (record label and number) – year of release – origin of country): Intro – Whitewood – s/t – (Exotic EXS-1-91172) 1970…

Anders Östberg – High Himalayas, Crystal Waters and Electronic Impulses. Music from my Collection.

A new program by Anders Östberg after a seven month’s hiatus. But there is a good reason for this. The collection from which Anders chooses his tracks for the program is full of rarities and contains vinyls that are considered to be lost for ever. If there were a lost Ark of psychedelia and assorted electronics ever issued on Vinyl, it must have stranded in Anders’ living room. Listening to his pick of the seven months is a mind-boggling experience. The quality of the sound itself as well as the…

Anders Östberg – Children, elves and a tree person. Music from my collection.

Anders Östberg is from Sweden. He lives in a pretty small town a good car’s ride west of Stockholm. Wooden houses are painted in colors flaming red or nature green. And there’s houses that don’t add anything special to the village. Maybe there is nothing special at all about the small town he lives in. But ‘special’ is a prerogative held by those who are looking for something unique. We got that. I know Anders personally. I can say that he is gifted with a fine-tuned bullshit-detector. I also know…
