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.
This week we continue our deep dive into the back catalog of Sub Rosa Records out of Belgium- covering the period from 2000 to 2008; groundbreaking recordings of spoken word, historical gems and field recordings. We hear from Merce Cunningham, Aphex Twin and many others on the subject of the artist and the audience, along with the usual audities you have come to love and expect.
