The Great Falls: St. Anthony Falls
Produced by Dixie Treichel

The Great Falls, dubbed “St Anthony Falls” by Father Louis Hennepin, evolved during the Ice Age and became the birthplace of Minneapolis. A spiritual place for Native Americans, and especially Dakota people, the Falls have always been a magnet for their beauty and power. European settlers harnessed the water power for lumber and flour mill industries that developed along the banks of the Mississippi, but years of over-use marred the landscape. Today St. Anthony Falls are part of the Mississippi River Historic District. KFAI’s Dixie Treichel produced this documentary for MinneCulture.

The Honeydogs at the Aster Cafe

Recorded for MinneCulture, The Honeydogs perform new material before heading into the studio to record its new CD, “What Comes After” (November release on Grain Belt Records). Written in earnest and recorded in less than six days, “What Comes After” blends roots pop with orchestral and soul arrangements. From the brash title track to the psychedelic “The Devil You Do,” the Honeydogs are an inspired ensemble. With shades of Leonard Cohen, Harry Nilsson, Nick Drake and Tony Joe White, the new CD is a soul, folk and country record tracked with minimal overdubs.

Band members include:
Adam Levy (guitars/vocals)
Brian Halverson (guitars/vocals)
Darren Jackson (guitar/vocals/banjitar)
Trent Norton (bass)
Peter J. Sands (keyboards/accordion)
Peter Anderson (drums)
Stephen Kung (trumpet)
Matt Darling (trombone)
