Given that International Women’s Day would be in a few days and KFAI would celebrate it with 24 hours of programming for the 25th time (!!!) we heard from Cibo Matto’s fabulous “Viva La Woman” to kick off the show. The next two hours were a romp in new local music (Bernie King, The Fattenin’ Frogs) really cool singin’ (Sally Seltmann, Manhattan Transfer), and hot swingin’ (Papa John Kolstad & the Hot Club of East Lake). Hope you had fun!

We heard new music this morning from Sally Seltmann, The Autumn Defense, Angelique Kidjo and new music from The Jack Brass Band in advance of their release show. It was a nice mix of jazz, singer-songwriters, electronic beats and new stuff happening locally. Check out the playlist!

This morning’s edition was Jumondeh Without Boundaries as our usual Monday morning news anchor got to show us his musical side. We heard a fab mix of world music, great songwriters and beats to get your Monday moving along. He took great care of us!

We were joined by Paul Riedner this morning, a veteran who found a way to connect his war experiences with music as a way of reintegrating to civilian life and who decided other veterans should have access to the arts to also find connections through expression. He wrote a grant—got it—and created an opportunity for veterans to have an expenses-paid, week-long arts retreat just outside of Red Wing. Veterans of all ages and wars are welcome to apply for the retreat. The application is very simple and is due by the end of business April 1st. Learn more here: http://www.redwingartsassociation.org/. Check out the playlist to see the music Paul brought us and what I played from new releases by Vernon Dixon, Vance Gilbert and—yes—Johnny Cash.

Still enjoying the St. Paul & The Broken Bones release we’ve been hearing together on Monday mornings. The title track to “Half the City” is great, “Call Me” is great, “It’s Midnight” is what we heard today and it’s great. If you’ve been digging the neo-soul artists of late like Charles Bradley or even Mayer Hawthorne, don’t sleep on this record. We also heard Glen David Andrews new one—full of varying styles not unlike his cousin Trombone Shorty—and new local music from Vernon Dixon and The 99ers. And new Thievery Corporation and Dan Croll. And Benny K stopped in during the second hour to talk about his new music, too!
