We speak with Jim Walsh about Bar Yarns and Manic-Depressive Mixtapes, which details 30 years of pop, funk, and rock and roll, up close and personal. We also talk with him about Gold Experience: Following Prince in the 90s. Both books are currently available from the University of Minnesota Press. Jim Walsh was a reporter for many years with the Pioneer Press.
Today's show was a special that began at Noon today on Corazon Latino, went through Women Folk and ended up on Rollin & Tumblin. Carla Hagan, Eve Macleish, Ellen Stanley and I shared all three shows and a world of female music. From noon to 6:30pm the audience was treated to Cumbias, Salsas, Tejano music, Brazilian jazz, Americana, blues, folk, Latina R & B, Sambas, bossa novas, country and roots music from around the world. All three shows blended together over the six and a half hours and all four show hosts had fun, laughed, danced and ate food and partied like it was 2017.
