PLEDGE DRIVE SHOW: You may make a pledge via this website. If you weave around, you’ll find the link. Tell them (them who track this stuff) you heard about it on Freewheelin’. Yada Yada.

Angie Pykonen (of KFAI’s In Your Ear) and I were joined by a couple of guests this afternoon:

Ron Thums (formerly of the great, sorely missed, Friday night show “Radio Rumpus Room”), stopped in to participate in the hijinx and keep the show focused in the right direction, whatever that means.

Also, Tea Simpson of L’Assassins stopped by. Freewheelin’ is sponsoring the L’Assassins Record Release & Pajama Party, Saturday night at Lee’s. Reckless Ones, Violent Shifter & DJ Travis will also be perfoming.

Anyway, Tea is a cool lady and we were thrilled she could stop in. Unfortunately, with all the pledge drive hoopla, we couldn’t give her as much time as we would like. We did manage to chat a bit, play a couple of L’Assassins and Reckless Ones songs, and have a few giggles. Hopefully, she and her bandmates will be back on the show sometime soon.

Thanks to all of you who made a pledge to Freewheelin’. I love ya’.

Think you may want to see a list of all the songs we played today? Then click “more” and you’ll be magically taken to the land of playlists. From there, you’ll also be able to link into the archive.

KFAI The MN Sound host Jonathan Kennedy joined me on this special pledge drive show. We spun favorite local bands and shared SXSW 2012 discoveries! And, I premiered new Blood’n‘Stuff!

It’s a spring pledge drive edition of the Pop Shop, and it’s also 1966—arguably the best year in music. From Dylan’s “Blonde on Blonde,” to The Beach Boys’ “Pet Sounds,” 1966 was a phenomenal year in music. Tonight we spin cuts by Love, the Turtles, the Yardbirds and the Creation. Plus DJ Izzy’s “Super Weirdo” set featuring 13th Floor Elevators, Capt Beefheart, the Mothers of Invention and “word jazz” by Ken Nordeen.

If you like the Pop Shop and grassroots, community radio, show your support for KFAI and make a donation. Call 612-375-9030 or go to kfai.org. Thanks!

Week one of this Spring’s pledge drive.
