Agent Tothar reports to Tiki Oasis from his secret headquarters in Akron, Ohio. 1960s spy sounds and orchestral go-go grooves are among his favorite genres, which he’ll be spinning at Tiki Oasis. Since 2008, Tothar can be heard every Sunday evening as host of The Beyondophonic Action Hour show on LuxuriaMusic.com. Previously, Tothar co-hosted The Beyondo Mondo Record Party, a freeform radio show on WAPS-FM in Akron from 1999-2008
In his alter ego of Michael David Toth, Tothar has produced the Perez Prado ¡Primal! CD for the UK Rev-Ola label and has been a regular contributing music writer for Cool & Strange Music! Magazine and various regional/national publications.
Semi-annually starting in 1996, Tothar organized local live DJ go-go/Now Sound events memorializing hi-fi kingpin Enoch Light, born in nearby Canton, Ohio on August 18, 1905. This expanded into an odd franchise of simultaneous Enoch Light events with DJs in other cities internationally. Noticing that Tiki Oasis 2012 Saturday marks Light’s 107th birthday, Tothar will resurrect the spirit of his local “Enoch Light Birthday Memorial Counterespionage Go-Go Happening” events during one of his DJ sets.
