Live From Studio 5!
Every week "Live From Studio Five!" airs live performances in our studios of local bands of all different genres. Occasionally we interview national artists such as Wanda Jackson, Kid Koala and Dale Watson. "Live From Studio 5!" is a group effort. Hosted by Cher Dial, along with regulars, Doug Solomon and Doug The Thug. This show was started almost four years ago by MJ Gilmore and Doug The Thug. MJ has moved on to bigger and better things in Chicago and her tireless efforts over that last four years will leave a lasting impression on "Live From Studio 5!" Thank you MJ and good luck and we miss you already!
Vernon Dixon is fronted by Katy Vernon Thomasberg and Drew Dixon. Original songs with tight harmonies, steeped in honky-tonk and country blues, backed by an all-star band featuring fiddle and pedal steel guitar.

In honor of my dear friend, Greg Maland of Gregory Dee & The Avanites, I have finally edited together his very last performance EVER. He played three numbers at the Medina Ballroom's induction ceremony for the Minnesota Rock & Country Hall of Fame on May 27, 2006. The final number was his famous song "The Grind". The crowd went wild.
WE LOVE YOU GREG!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9T-7IR7M4A
