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.
A journey through time in a singularly intriguing and rich musical biome, Brazil; from the birth of samba carrying through two dictatorships, repression, exile, and rebirth. A testimony to the indomitable spirit that is music, and the joy, power, and grief that is Brazil.
This is the first of musical journeys for A Box Of Toys, a short jaunt from Bristol UK, through the Chunnel, to the continent. on our way, we survey the musical landscape that brought us such notables as Portishead, Massive Attack, and a host of oddities from the Crammed Discs label.
