Travel around St Paul and you’ll notice that some of the streets have two names—the one that appears on maps, and a second, co-street name that honors an individual. Katie McWatt Avenue, Raskas Road, William Mahoney Street—these caught the eye of KFAI producer Bobbie Scott, who dug into some of the stories behind the street names. This documentary features an African-American woman and civil rights activist, a local rabbi involved with national issues, and a labor activist who became the mayor of St Paul during the Depression.
Opening today’s show with a review of two recent bands of the Global Roots Festival at the Cedar… and some more Buena Vista Social Club All-Stars. At 12:30 I have a local expert on Affordable Healthcare with a special opportunity to share with us at the beginning of the discussion around MNSure options. Take a listen – you might get a new perspective from the dialogue ! I end the program with some Vinicius Cantuaria, Brasilian musician coming next week to the Dakota on Tuesday October 8.
