8/16 in a nutshell…

This week’s “Ooh” (“Opening Oldies Hour”) featured a Monkey Mix, a couple of Jamaican Independence songs, a preview of this week’s James Bond-themed 4(+1)@4, and Owen Gray mashin’ it! Among other things. Sherwood got into one of the far-outest Quincy Jones compositions imaginable, from the three-artist “Journey to Next” cd (works by Q.J., as well as Dizzy Gillespie and Benny Carter) issued on Lightyear. Also heard: the new posthumous Tokyo Jihen song from last week got reprised, among other things_ such as Steve Turre’s 12+min. epic “The Emperor”. In the Untitled Hour 3 (UH3? ‘Til I come up sith something better… ), after the aforementioned Bond 4(+1), John Shroeder gave us our weekly helping of “Phoenix City” in GotchaSKAvered.

The Great Falls: St. Anthony Falls
Produced by Dixie Treichel

The Great Falls, dubbed “St Anthony Falls” by Father Louis Hennepin, evolved during the Ice Age and became the birthplace of Minneapolis. A spiritual place for Native Americans, and especially Dakota people, the Falls have always been a magnet for their beauty and power. European settlers harnessed the water power for lumber and flour mill industries that developed along the banks of the Mississippi, but years of over-use marred the landscape. Today St. Anthony Falls are part of the Mississippi River Historic District. KFAI’s Dixie Treichel produced this documentary for MinneCulture.
