Sheila Carrington, of the Edina A Better Chance Foundation, came by, and we both talked by phone with Delfeayo Marsalis, coming to town to perform at the Dakota for the group’s fundraiser. Also played music from Duke Ellington, Cecil Taylor, Chester Thompson, Wes Montgomery, Jay Epstein, Billy Eckstine, Dizzy Gillespie, and a new vocalist from Oakland, Lisa Forkish. 45 of the week: The Chef, by Eddie “Lockjaw” Davis on Prestige.
A Valentine's bloodbath! Ben and Mason plow through more than two dozen love-bummers. Car wrecks! Plane crashes! Shark attacks! Ghost threats! Death by society/ambiguous drug use! Curl up with the one you love or hole up in a cabin plotting your revenge; this is the perfect soundtrack for either.
Taped live on location at scenic Medicine Lake. The KFAI studios were full and we didn't want to make you wait. Feel free to put off listening 'til tomorrow over a box of 50% off assorted chocolates, if you must.
