It’s a given: as long as the music played on this show speaks to your soul, you are a Resident. We might ask you for money sometimes, but we’ll never ask to see your papers. It’s Gringo de Mayo today at the Rockhouse as we celebrate the many and glorious influences of Latino culture in music. The second half of the show celebrates the enduring contribution of the 45, courtesy of Mick Novak.
Our foremost Man About Town, hailing from the Best Corner in the Twin Cities, Mark Trehus, joins us for the second half of the show and 90 minutes of intoxicating 45s. Yes, it’s true: we love records at the Rockhouse.
One of the pledges we make on this show is to never forget – never forget the memories evoked by the crackles of an lp; never forget our musical heroes. As we get ready for Memorial Day this weekend, DJ Fathertime joins us to remember some of the people who we’ve lost this year, bee keepers and bluesmen alike.
