10/2/2012 The Morning Blend

 

Pam Hill and Terry Carter provided the morning music and news updates, respectively, this October morning. We featured a piece by Susan Gray on the Riverside Plaza complex in Minneapolis and the second installment of the Dakota War series. Among the music we heard was new music from Ozomatli from their kids album (!), Ellis from the compilation "We Love to Be Free: Songs in Support of the Freedom to Marry" addressing a timely subject and we discussed what the lyrics to Echo & the Bunnymen's "Do It Clean" could possibly mean. Dale thought the subject must be an industrialist talking about his responsible disposal of hazardous waste...
