New stories from KFAI’s 10,000 Fresh Voices series.

1. Fiber artist Beth Baron
Produced by Todd Melby
If you’re a painter, you can go to the store and buy oils or watercolors. But what if you’re an artist obsessed with materials you can’t buy at a store? That’s the dilemma facing Beth Barron of Minneapolis. The main ingredients in her creations are Band-Aids. And not new ones either.

2. Experimental sound artist, Philip Blackburn
Produced by Dixie Treichel
Environmental sound artist Philip Blackburn records outdoor sounds, creates large-scale activities for untrained musicians, and presents unusual public sound experiences. KFAI producer Dixie Treichel talks with Blackburn, who recently participated in the Twin Cities Northern Spark Festival.

3. Mushroom man, Tom Peterson
Produced by Michelle Alimoradi
Tom Peterson is known to many as “the mushroom man.” For years Peterson has been hunting and gathering fungi, and teaching people about the multiple, healthful properties of mushrooms.

4. Stunt man and children’s rights advocate, Eric Howell
Produced by Michelle Bruch
Eric Howell is a film-industry stunt man who also acts, writes and directs. But Howell does more than leap from buildings and crash cars—he’s an advocate for children’s rights. His award-winning screenplay, “Anna’s Playground,” shot in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood, has drawn critical acclaim. In fact, United Nations officials are using the film to advance a resolution on children in armed conflict.

5. Baseball legend, Harmon Killebrew
Produced by Katey DeCelle
Harmon Clayton Killebrew spent more than 20 years as a professional baseball player—many for the Minnesota Twins. Second only to Bath Ruth in American League home runs, he was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1984. Killebrew passed away from cancer last month, and despite his nickname, “the Killer,” he will be remembered as much for his kindness and humanity, as for his baseball prowess.
