Today, Cory Washington, KFAI's co-music director, provides the tunes while Siobhan Keirans brings us the news. 

We'll hear how the brain is connected to the eyeballs on Brain Talk, get an excerpt of the KFAI show Fresh Fruit about the impending move of the Quatrefoil LGBT library from St. Paul to the Spirit on Lake development, hear Christina Cerutti talk with Graham Eastmond of the American Refugee Committee, and talk with Carrie Martinez and Chris Gray of Occupy Homes.  

 THE JELLY PROJECT turned Studio 5 into a furnace!  Great local band (for now), soon-to-be-national, bet on it!
