Thursday, December 18th, it’s all about Minnesota. Thomas Maltman joins us in the studio to talk about his book The Night Birds, a historical novel set in Minnesota before and after the Dakota Conflict. It is the winner of several awards and was a Booksense/Midwest Connections Book Pick.
Diane Wilson, Dominic Saucedo, and Josiah Titus also join us to talk about their contributions to Fiction on a Stick: Stories by Writers from Minnesota, a collection of short fiction by 24 Minnesota writers just published by Milkweed Editions.
Just when you thought you had heard everything on the Echo Chamber, we put together a show that included 6 orchestras, Louis Armstrong (twice, plus 1 impersonation), Duke Ellington Count Basie, and an exclusive mix (from TurnTableTerrorist) in which the latest track is dated 1933. On top of this craziness, we did a bit of Reggae Christmas – with Yellowman, T.S.P.O., and What A Wonderful World (both the new Orb remix, and the reggae version from Stingers ATX and Sledge).
