January 2013 The Pop Shop Archives

Ring in the New Year with the Pop Shop! The first KFAI broadcast of 2013, Liberty Finch and DJ Izzy celebrate by featuring the fabulous musical guests who visited the Pop Shop in 2012. With Joe Fahey, Andrew Sandoval, Willie Wisely, Steve Butler (Smash Palace), John Eller (Shiny Lights), Mike Ciresi and David Ronald Beckey (Autumn Leaves). Plus, highlights from guest DJs Carl Isadore (Izzy’s pop), Dave Hoenack (Hymie’s Vintage Records) and Dave Biljan (Flip Side Records).

A tribute to some of the great artists who left this mortal coil in 2012…….from Joe South and Johnny Otis, to Davy Jones, Donna Summer, Robin Gibb and many more. Plus, Phyllis Diller singing “Satisfaction”?!

Liberty Finch solo stint on tonight’s Pop Shop. Garage, rock, punk and pop!

Remembering musical powerhouse and creative spirit, Steve Kramer. With a special interview from friend and fellow musician, Kristian Hoffman. Kristian and Steve played in the third (and final) line-up of the Contortions, with James Chance and Bradley Field; and were roommates for a spell in New York before the “Minneapolis Mafia” returned to Minnesota to form the Wallets. A heartfelt tribute to a gifted and eclectic artist.

Catch Kristian Hoffman’s fabulous internet radio show, Pepperland Spicerack, every Sunday afternoon on Luxuria Music.

Plenty of requests tonight, including ’70s pop faves, one-hit wonders, and the Minneapolis Sound. Plus, a full-force facebook rant about Exile: love ‘em or hate ‘em? It’s all here on the Pop Shop!
