THE JELLY PROJECT turned Studio 5 into a furnace!  Great local band (for now), soon-to-be-national, bet on it!

This holiday Global Beat moves between New Orleans and Hawai’i, among other locations and back home to the Midwest for some new releases.

Welcome to my Xmas 2012 show…..today, I took the audience on a Santa Sleigh Ride back to the past and explored the Xmas of my youth…1960-1970. At my house in St. Paul, we always had the music going and Xmas Day was no exception. Sure, we enjoyed a few actual Xmas songs but back in those days, the songs weren’t as cool as they are now. So we had to make our own cool Yule. And we did it by partying to the sounds of the day…..see play list below.

Siobhan Keirans brings the news in today's Morning Blend, and she and Dale pick the music, including some of Siobhan's favorites from her home in Ireland.

Holiday and seasonal music today, including songs by Jimmy McGriff, Tony Bennett, Connie Evingson, Carla Bley, Pony Poindexter, Ellis Marsalis, and more. A special segment for toy trains at Christmas, with a brief number from NRBQ, and songs by Dan Hicks, and Susan Arioli. Finally, the 45 of the week: If I were a Bell, by Miles Davis on Prestige.

Facing East: The music of John Coltrane – Jose James
