Disorganized Crime: Dillinger, Karpis and the Yeggmen of St. Paul
Produced by Britt Aamodt

John Dillinger and Alvin “Creepy” Karpis robbed banks for a living. In their day—Depression-Era America—they were legends, as famous as Babe Ruth. But instead of home runs and ERAs, they counted stolen money and dead bodies. And when things got too hot, they ran to St. Paul, Minnesota, where they were welcomed with open arms and no questions asked. KFAI’s Britt Aamodt follows the trail of two of America’s most famous gangsters to 1930s St. Paul, with a guided tour provided by Paul Maccabee, author of “John Dillinger Slept Here.”

Thanks to Greg Carr, a.k.a. Hamilton Sense, for sitting in for me this week. Greg hosted the great radio show “Dig Up The Roots” on this station for many years. Man, I miss that show and Greg’s creative style, knowledge, and wit.

Today, he played all sorts of interesting material that fits under the Freewheelin’ umbrella. Also, if you listen to the archive, you’ll hear Doc Rock introducing Homer & Jethro’s “Hill Billie Hippie“….that’s worth the price of admission right there.

Dean Magraw joined us at 11am, setting up the songs we would hear from his new album with Marcus Wise, How the Light Gets In. He also gave us a peek into recording the project with whom he calls the third collaborator, Matthew Zimmerman, at Wild Sound Studio. Although Marcus was unable to make the interview, his spirit was there through the recording, and Dean gave us insight into the rhythms he brought to the project, too. Listen in the second hour if you missed the original broadcast.
