Last show in the series. I might return to the airwaves sometime. But for now, who knows? Anyway I crammed ten tunes into this one, including fantastic new music from Platonica Erotica and Zach Phillips. Also featured were a trio of tunes from French folk-prog group Mahjun, a short and sweet banger from Senegalese Mbalax singer Thione Ballago Seck, and three DTT classics: Super Eccentric Theatre's 'Oh Les Beaux Japonais!', Neway Debebe's 'Yetikimt Abeba' and the eponymous track from the album from which I adopted this show's name, Cryptacize's 'Dig That Treasure'.

Next was Soviet underground new-wave group НИИ Косметики, playful Japanese artist Asao Kikuchi, Latin-inspired countrymen Carioca, and Catalan guitarist Toni Xuclà.
