Today was my 19th anniversary of being on the air at KFAI. Thank you all for making these years fun and fantastic. Today’s play list features music and musicians that have become my favorites over the last 19 years. No way is this list complete……I only had two hours and could only get 22 songs in….so this is only a reflection of blues so full bodied..that you can squeeze ‘em.
Used the last show of the year to review a few CDs from area musicians, including Fuzzy Math, Parker Paisley, Chris Bates’ Red5, Jana Nyberg, Jeremy Siskind featuring Nancy Harms, and Larry McDonough. Also played music from Jeanne Arland Peterson, Christine Rosholt, Koplant No, and Pat Mallinger. The 45 of the week was Theme for an Electric Surfboard, by Jack McDuff.
Today, Cory Washington, KFAI's co-music director, provides the tunes while Siobhan Keirans brings us the news.
We'll hear how the brain is connected to the eyeballs on Brain Talk, get an excerpt of the KFAI show Fresh Fruit about the impending move of the Quatrefoil LGBT library from St. Paul to the Spirit on Lake development, hear Christina Cerutti talk with Graham Eastmond of the American Refugee Committee, and talk with Carrie Martinez and Chris Gray of Occupy Homes.
