May 2018 Songs of the Soul Archives

Today's show was featured as part of a live broadcast in honor of KFAI's 40 year birthday. We went on the air May 1st, 1978 in the belfrey of the Walker Church and that's exactly where we broadcast from today…the Walker Church at 3104 16th Avenue South in Minneapolis. Today's song list was chosen to showcase the best of the blues in honor of the first blues show to air on KFAI 40 years ago. That show was called "Jammin' with Willie" and featured Willie Murphy as the very first KFAI blues DJ.

My guest today was Renee Austin who's back on the scene after a 13 year hiatus due to a serious surgery that paralyzed her vocal chords. She's back with a new CD called "Songbirds & Angels" that pays tribute to her Higher Power that lifted her up and carried her through the tough times and is now elevating her once again. Catch her Saturday May 12th at Crooners in NE Mpls with a 730pm start time.

Today's show featured an interview with Liz Johnson and Mela Amara, the co-owners of Magus Books. I asked the ladies to come in to the studio today to help me talk about the intersection of music and magic. They validated my constant claim that magic is all about self evolution and that music is an aid to get you to it and through it. Magus Books 1848 Central Ave NE Mpls, MN.
