A North Shore Christmas Karol, Part II

Deadbeats on the Air presents a radio theater event: “A North Shore Christmas Karol.” Based on Charles Dickens’, “A Christmas Carol,” this adaptation by Britt Aamodt has been modernized and set in Minnesota’s Arrowhead region.

Deadbeats on the Air is a radio theater group, founded at KFAI radio in 2008, by Britt Aamodt, Michael Fischbein and Mike Stapp. Their first production was the original feature “The Evil of Shady Lake” about the evils of toxic dumping and “those odd people next door.” In 2010, they adapted a popular Minneapolis comic strip, “Road Kill Bill,” created by artist Ken Avidor, for KFAI’s Wave Project.

It was my Annual Holiday Music Show, a.k.a. “Not The Same Old Holiday Music Crap You’ll Hear On Those Commercial Radio Stations”. Clicl “more” to see the playlist.

It’s sort of a show built around the spirit of Robert Earl Keen’s “Merry Christmas From The Family”, which I’ve been playing since it first came out, circa ’94.

Thanks to Angie Pykonen for hanging out, keeping me centered, and generally putting up with me. And, thanks to all the wonderful listeners who’ve sent their love and kind words thru the years.

Peace on earth, goodwill to all of you. Jackson

Dipped into the eggnog and threw together our annual holiday show.
