A Box of Toys is a radio program dedicated to the mystery of obscure music. The sheer volume of new and original artists is utterly overwhelming and A Box of Toys endeavors to pluck these voices out of their dusty basements and onto the airwaves for your listening pleasure. It is the culmination of a quarter-century curation effort that brings attention to lost, forgotten, eclectic and unknown music the world needs to hear. Come dig around and revel in what we’ve found.
