Lots of folk-gone-brass in Hour 1, including new music from local group Brass Lassie and La Bottine Souriante, from one of their legendary concerts at the turn of the century, when we had no idea who our next President would be. In Hour 2 we welcomed in Jason Medeiros and Joe Holland from Minneapolis garage group Trash Street, presenting their debut record "Live at BBQ Laundromat" and some selections from their record vaults. Plus William Shatner covering The Cramps. 

New music this week by Charles Bradley, James Hunter, Janiva Magness (w/ Rusty Young of Poco), Squirrel Nut Zippers (1st release in 17 years), Glen Hansard, Rev. Shawn Amos, Mitch Woods, Johnny Fink & the Intrusion, Myles Kennedy. Also did a tribute to Jimmy LaFave, plus thus usual mix by the likes of Francine Reed (with Lyle Lovett), Leroi Brothers, Imelda May, Jimbo Mathis, The Paladins, and more.  I hope you crank up the volume and enjoy listening.

Today's segment features a pre-recorded interview with Fode Bangoura, a djembe drum master living in Minnesota now, originally from Guinea, West Africa.  I speak with Fode about his upcoming concert at The Cedar on Friday,  Jan. 19.  The performance will feature original choreography from his brother, with a local dance ensemble they have helped create together.  The interview comes up in the second half hour of the program – and includes samples from his recent release.  African music is featured throughout the entire first hour.
