The Last Reel: Minnesota’s Drive-In Theaters

They had names like The Cinebuff, the Bronco, The Maple Leaf, The Sunset. They were the drive-in movie theaters of Minnesota. Once, there were more than 80 outdoor movie theaters in the Gopher State. Today, only a handful remain, including the Sky-Vu in Warren and the Starlite 5 in Litchfield. Produced by Todd Melby.

"We Hope You're Ready for Flo & Eddie" segment, Al Subola and Tinsley Ellis interviews, Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, Legendary Shack Shakers, Alejandro Escovedo, Mayall, Gatemouth Brown, Larry & His Flask, Imelda May, and lots of other goodies on this week's show.  

A steamy summer night…in a haze of ganja smoke…with tons of new tunes. Opened the show with the very cool Prince Fatty presents Hollie Cook In Dub album from Mr. Bongo Records. Another highlighted new release tonight was the “Guidency” single (featuring Omar Perry) on the “Don’t Let Them” riddim from the Mungo’s Hi-Fi (Scotch Bonnet Records). Also making its debut was the Delayrium album from Jah Acid Dub, as did the “Ya Sta Qi” EP from Superpendejos (on Urban World). And then there was the ganja smoke…from this week’s summer mix: an excerpt from Tom Chasteen’s Magic Marijuana Megamix. Selector Tom Chasteen presents an all ganja tune, all vinyl mix in honor of 4:20 (2011). Also new in the mix: a brand new single from Jimmy Cliff, from his upcoming “Rebirth” release; a new unreleased track from Zion Dirty Sound; Eljai’s hot “Frenemy” single; a new version of the Mutant Frogs “Vibe Steady” track; and a new dubplate from Alpha Steppa.
