Legendary Twin Cities musician Paul Metsa joins us to talk about his memoir, Blue Guitar Highway. Greil Marcus has said of the book, The roads Paul Metsa has traveled are so fabled you might think, opening his book, that it would be a book of footnotes—the record of a man walking in other people’s footsteps. But Metsa brings every myth the roads carry down to earth, rewriting their stories in real time, returning the roads to real life, opening them up again to both past and future.

Also this week we talk with John Harrigan about his novel, The Jeeptown Sock Hop, a bittersweet portrayal of sex abuse, revenge and interracial relationships in the 1950s that does not correspond to a Norman Rockwell painting.

A North Shore Christmas Karol, Part I

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.
