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…

The scratched vinyl show by Adrian Shephard

Adrian Shephard returned to Berlin after a visit to his family in England. He didn’t bring back the Sunday edition of The Panama Daily. In his suitcase was a collection of old longplayers. Then one day in the studio, a short time after it had been hit by the Gysin comet, overlooking the ravage, he found out that the old record player was still intact. “IDEA!” He connected, put on the first record, and The Scratched Vinyl Show was born. Then the record stoped. Now what to do if you…

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…

Höllentag Spezial by Jeff Surak

One of the presents we got at the end of last year was Jeff Surak’s Höllentag Spezial. Höllentag Spezial was made with one record player, one recorder and a lot of records. Jeff played locked grooves. If the needle is caught in a locked groove it plays only the piece of music or sound that can be captured in a full spin. The result is a series of repetitions, that can be experienced as mechanic or trance-inducing or simply musical. Especially for its repetitious form, the mechanical element prevails, and…

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 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. Can say that he is gifted with a fine-tuned bullshit-detector. I also know he has a…
