Patty & the Buttons at the Red Stag Supperclub
Produced by Tom Garneau

Patty and the Buttons formed in 2008 when accordionist/vocalist Patrick “Patty” Harison returned to the Midwest. Inspired by his travels and work Panorama Jazz Band, Loose Marbles and the Baby Soda Jazz Band, he formed the Buttons to continue his love of hot rhythm and happy feet. The band’s eclectic repertoire includes New Orleans Traditional Jazz, Western Swing, Gypsy Melodies, Dust Bowl Ballads, Jug Music and 1930’s Popular Song. The core instrumentation of accordion, clarinet, guitar and bass is light and swift, but also beautifully melancholy and lush. Known as an accordionist, Patty doubles as the bands vocalist, with a vocal style that has been described as “Tom Waits meets Rudy Vallee.” This show was produced for KFAI by Tom Garneau.

Charlotte Ouisconsin Clark Van Cleve
Produced by Bobbie Scott

Charlotte Ouisconsin Clark Van Cleve was a remarkable woman who left a legacy in Minnesota. A newborn Charlotte arrived here in 1819, when her father landed with the Fifth Infantry to construct Fort Snelling. Spending her formative years at remote military posts instilled in Charlotte a love of the flag, and throughout her life she exemplified strong patriotism and an altruistic nature. She raised a large family, and after the Civil War, founded Bethany Home—a safe-haven for “fallen” girls and women. Charlotte served tirelessly as the president of Bethany Home for more than twenty years, often taking unpopular stands in support of those she called her “girls.” Despite her sometimes controversial opinions, Charlotte was a beloved and respected member of the community throughout her long life. This MinneCulture documentary was produced by Bobbie Scott, with production assistance by Nancy Sartor. Special thanks to Sabrina Crews, Lisa Day, Ron Grogg, Christine and Jeff Nordin, and the Historic Fort Snelling Fife and Drum Corps.
