Larry Hayes was one of the founding members of The Lamont Cranston Band along with his brother Pat (who everyone thinks is Lamont). He also had his own band in the early days of the Minnesota music scene, Larry Hayes & The Tonearms. Tom Burns played with Lazy Bill Lucas, The Joel Johnson Band, and more. This one is a can’t miss show too.
If you like the old psychedelic, blues, rock evocative of Blue Cheer, you’ll LOVEVOODOO. This is a new local band that’s getting traction. Lewis Franti and Paul Sauey continued their past musical relationship with the key addition of Johnny Kasai on guitar.
Tune in to Womenfolk Sunday, November 15th for a live interview with Toshi Reagon.

Tune in to Radio Rumpus Room this Friday, December 19 as we host — for the first time anywhere — two folks with more firsthand knowledge of the legendary Twin Cities band the Trashmen than anyone short of the four flappin’ birdmen themselves.
We’ll be hosting Mike Jann, lifelong friend, coordinator and archivist of the band, who also taped many of their live performances.
