Anders Östberg – The Stars are Beautiful

Anders Östberg reaches out to the stars. He can see a lot of them in his hometown somewhere in Sweden. The music might be defined ambient. But there is also a time before ambient music. And that’s where some of the pieces come from. From somewhere in space, or at least from a place that could be defined as such. You will hear sounds for space travels, and for lounge parties in space ships. You will hear music that was avant-garde many eons ago, and you will hear sounds to…

Anders Östberg – Time Signal Stations

Anders Östberg’s previous contributions were songs and sounds that were part of his vast record collection. That was then. His new show ‘Time Signal Stations’ could be the treasure he has brought back from an expedition deep into radio land. It must have been a voyage that took him beyond the borders of time, into otherworldy experiences that yet seem so very familiar. Maybe this, what you will hear in his show, is what the earth will sound like, long after it has disappeared. Anders says: What you will about…

Anders Östberg – Down to my very last tear : : Part 2: The sun went away

Every seven months Anders Östberg sends in a one hour mix of songs and sounds taken from his vast collection of singles and lp’s. He started in April 2014. Each show has a different theme. This time he decided to compile a follow up to his garageband obscurities. Each heart can be broken an infinite amount of times and the sea of tears will never dry up. Don’t put your head between your knees, stand up and celebrate your misery. Rejoice. Dance. Anders simply says: “Second installment in my series….

Anders Östberg – Music from the bad part of town. Crazy vibrations, trashcans and whips. Music from my collection.

Anders treats the Radio On listener with a choice of his collection of rare vinyl, and does so every seven months. We had Jesus and Flowers before, now it is time for something really bad. These words by Anders Östberg say it all: The pop music between Elvis and Beatles is considered a bad period. Wonderfully bad to me. Here are some gems from that era with a sleazy atmosphere. I offer you listeners a smelly bouquet of tunes that are sincerely risqué, dubious and never made the charts. Enjoy!…

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 1960s 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…
