The Brass Messengers

This “Live from Minnesota” segment features the Brass Messengers—a Twin Cities’ band that formed from the Heart of the Beast May Day parade. With Caribbean and Balkan influences, the Brass Messengers describe themselves as, “a sprawling fun factory of musicians.” This show was recorded at the Ritz Theater in Minneapolis on March 12, 2012, and features contributions from the Yale Women’s Slavic Chorus. For more information on the Brass Messengers, visit brassmessengers.com. Produced for KFAI by Daniel Zamzow.

THE BIKE RIDE OF ’76 by Hugh Duncan
Two young children and their dad try to bike across country before the 4th of July.

Special holiday visit with musician Wanaku, originally from Cameroun, W. Africa, celebrating his brand new release, Indigenous People.  Free flowing session with multiple tracks previewed from the new release.

Another night filled with tons of new music, some classic dubs, a cool summer mix, and some sounds from outer space (to commemorate World UFO day on 7/2). Brand new sounds from YT (the new Revolution Time album with Mungo’s Hi-Fi); Easy Star All Stars (from the upcoming “Thrillah” album); Dubtonic Kru; Abschalter; Longman; Negritage; Bigote; Mista Majah P (the “Four More Year” single); Mutant Frogs; and Hollie Cook (dubbed by Prince Fatty). The summer mix this week was an excerpt from Moshi Kamachi’s Wordsound-heavy “A Tale From Alpha to Omega” mix (originally done for the Chilldown Period website).

On Tuesday, July 3rd, our guests are Daniel Kalla and Camille Noe Pagan. Daniel Kalla calls in to talk about his new novel The Far Side of the Sky.

Had an interview today with Professor Mahmoud El-Kati, author of the “Hiptionary”, a book of phrases and terms used in modern conversation as slang. Professor El-Kati’s book explains the origins and the use of those terms. If you ever wondered what was the difference between “hip” and “hep”….get the Hip-tionary.(Papayrus Publishing)
