This week Izzy & Liberty got waylaid, leaving the Pop Shop in the hands of a very surprised d.j. cozy little… so "Sir Prize" by the Starlight Mints wound up somewhere in a mostly-doubleshots playlist, paired-up with Sugar Blaster, both from the 'Mints debut The Dream That Stuff Was Made Of. The Cardigans, Billy Joel, Perfume and Blondie also made it to the soda fountain this week. Wish you the best, Izzy & Finch!
Had to play some music by Leon Russell, Mose Allison, and Leonard Cohen in the mix today, which also included music by the likes of Mavis Staples, Blue Rodeo, Drive By Truckers, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Lee Rocker, Magic Dick & J Geils, Sabyre Rae Daniels, and more.
Rock photographer Dan Corrigan and music journalist, Danny Sigelman, co-authors of "Heyday: 35 Years of Music in Minneapolis" out on Minnesota Historical Society Press joined Spin with Cyn sharing stories about the book and Corrigan's photography of musicians over the years, and spun music of some of the artists featured in the book.
