Every week "Live From Studio Five!" airs live performances in our studios of local bands of all different genres. Occasionally we interview national artists such as Wanda Jackson, Kid Koala and Dale Watson. "Live From Studio 5!" is a group effort. Hosted by Cher Dial and Casey Moo, along with regulars, Doug Solomon and Doug The Thug. This show was started almost five years ago by MJ Gilmore and Doug The Thug. MJ has moved on to bigger and better things and her tireless efforts over that last four years will leave a lasting impression on "Live From Studio 5!" Thank you MJ and good luck and we miss you!
Hailing from St. Paul, MN and formed in the back of a '98 Saturn SL4, Rat Pit combines rock 'n roll and psychedelic rock with the energy of a 19th century underground cellar party. The standard four man lineup - two guitars, bass and drums - was formed in July 2012 and has since graced the stages at First Avenue's 7th Street Entry, The Turf Club and The Fine Line. The group features three vocalists and emphasizes vocal harmonies, catchy melodies and danceable grooves.

In honor of my dear friend, Greg Maland of Gregory Dee & The Avanites, I have finally edited together his very last performance EVER. He played three numbers at the Medina Ballroom's induction ceremony for the Minnesota Rock & Country Hall of Fame on May 27, 2006. The final number was his famous song "The Grind". The crowd went wild.
WE LOVE YOU GREG!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9T-7IR7M4A
