We heard new releases from Mark Olson, LA songwriter Alison Subol working under the name A Fine Frenzy, UK band Stateless (not out in the US yet), and The Chemical Brothers (just released). We were also joined in the 8:00 hour by Donna Miller, community mover and shaker, and chair of the Rondo Days:http://www.rondoaveinc.org celebration. Next week (July 24th), Andy will bring us great music all morning as I travel down to Texas. He has great taste in music, so it will be a lot of fun!
Weights, Skates, and Mr. Handyman. Your Man at the Bailey Building jiggles the switches, adjusts the weights, and fiddles with knobs — and gets the Jet (and the turntables) back on the runway, just in time for take off… phew!
This morning we were joined by Nathan from our local music show, MN Soundtrack,:http://www.kfai.org/node/3302 as he generously presented us with highlights from the 2007 Winnipeg Folk festival. He barely had time to sneak in a nap between driving down from Canada, but he treated us to Australia’s Cat Empire, something electronic and groovy from Canada—The No Luck Club, and the brand new record from That 1 Guy, The Moon is Disgusting. What a treat for those of us who couldn’t make it, and fun to hear what Nathan likes that’s outside of Minnesota!
