You are invited to join Ken for Back To The ’50s on Good ‘N Country Saturday June 21st from 3-5PM. The 1950s was a decade in which the country music genre experienced one of its largest booms. It was an era which saw Kitty Wells and Jean Shepard (pictured) breaking down gender barriers and Hank Williams recording hit after hit while influencing scores of his contemporaries, only to pass away while in his professional prime. Webb Pierce scored numerous hits every year in the decade beginning in 1952 and went on to become the biggest selling country artist of the 1950s. You will hear the original hit versions of the era and many obscurities as well. This will be a fun show to present, and hopefully it will be as much fun for you to hear.

This Sunday, June 22nd, 2014, The Cabooze will be hosting the FunkyTown Family Reunion, which will feature artists Mind Condition, Lo-Key?, Sounds of Blackness, RL, Jellybean Johnson, and #MPLS. This event is a benefit for Lance “LA” Alexander, a founding member of Lo-Key? and a collaborator, alongside his partner prof t, with such names as Michael and Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey, Alexander O’Neal, Flyte Tyme, and more. Lance was born with a rare condition called “Chiari Malformation”, and it wasn’t until the early 2000’s that he began to experience severe effects from it. While going through surgeries and physical therapies, Lance learned that he also had another disease called “Syringomyelia”, which was brought on by his “Chiari Malformation”. This eventually caused paralysis from the waist down.

Now Lance’s friends will be coming together for a night of music and optimism to help him raise enough money to help afford expensive medical treatment which may be able to reverse his paralysis. 100% of net proceeds will be donated to the “Lance Alexander Trust”.

They most likely will not have barrels with them, but Travis of “Boys n’ the Barrels” will visit Pam on KFAI Monday morning at 10:30am to talk about their big show at the Cabooze on Thursday. The Boys n’ the Barrels are a six-piece group playing variations on bluegrass and old-timey music and have been doing so in Minneapolis for six-to-seven years. Some others of “the boys” may join in, so Travis doesn’t have to be the only one answering questions about how MBOTMA’s Homegrown Kickoff treated them this past weekend, a possible fourth release on the way, and where the name came from, anyway. Tune in to Pam Without Boundaries Monday, June 2nd, at 10:30am to find out what’s next for this talented local group.
