Tune in to Freewheelin’ Monday morning, November 17 as Jackson Buck welcomes Dave Simonett from highly-acclaimed Trampled By Turtles to the KFAI studio for another edition of his Guest DJ Series.

As Jackson says: …The series allows artists to release their inner radio DJ for a day by bringing in their favorite recordings to share with us.

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.

Today, May 25th, Corazon Latino pays tribute to Bill Hinkley, master string player, humorist, artist, teacher, polyglot, friend, and companion of Judy Larson…a Minnesota gem!

This weeks True Brit! ( Friday nights at midnight ) will be totally iPhone powered! To celebrate the life and achievements of Apple’s Steve Jobs, the entire show will feature music played from host Simon Husbands’ iPhone – completely on the fly. No CD’s, no discs, no cassettes, no vinyl – just an iPhone.

This Friday (Sept. 9) at midnight, Simon Husbands will steer the True Brit! ship into foggy waters as he explores the 12 albums nominated for the prestigious Mercury Prize — from Adele to PJ Harvey, and Metronomy to Anna Calvi. Join Simon as he plays music so hot that you can see the steam from here. True Brit! Every Friday at midnight.

This coming Friday night / Saturday morning, True Brit! will be exploring the Pub Rock scene from the 70’s and then moving forward to talk to Simon Toulson-Clarke, the leading light with the band Red Box!

This week’s True Brit! will be presented by musical madman Mr. Colin Robinson in the first link up between True Brit! and Liverpool, UK! Colin Robinson will be well known to many KFAI listeners through his voice-overs and guest spots on the station – and he will bring his unique presence and attitude to the True Brit! airwaves as he plays some great music, all from the UK!
