1/28/2008 Freewheelin'

 

Thanks to Mikkel Beckmen for coming on as our guest this morning. He brought along some great music, including the brand new one by The Brass Kings entitled Washboard Rope Guitar

I'm honored they gave us the opportunity to present the world wide radio debut of the CD. Thanks guys.

The Brass Kings recorded this CD at Wild Sound in Minneapolis-and what a sound it is! Matthew Zimmerman gets it.

Mikkel plays washboard and other found objects on the CD; Steve Kaul guitars and vocals; Brad Ptacek on washboard bass. I'm looking forward to sitting on the couch listening to the great sounds and Steve's lyrical observations about the world in which we live.
