Thanks to Nate Dungan (Trailer Trash) for calling in today. He books the music at the State Fair, so we chatted about some of the great acts that will be coming to town at the great Minnesota get together. We also played music by some of the performers who’ll be appearing there including Redd Volkaert, Marcia Ball, Junior Brown, Deke Dickerson, The Turtles, and Dr. John.

In the second hour, our studio guests were members of Murzik, Rhythm & The Sounds, and The Half Hearts.

New music this week included tracks by Imelda May, Moreland & Arbuckle (with Steve Cropper on guitar), The Jayhawks, Hugh Laurie (of House fame) and Old 97’s.

We gave away tickets to Hippiefest…taking place at the Zoo on Sunday night.

The History of Twin Cities Variety Theater
Produced by Michelle Alimoradi & Judith McKenzie

In the early 20th century, Vaudeville and Burlesque shows reigned supreme for live entertainment. As a major stop along the rail lines, the Twin Cities hosted some of the biggest touring productions to cross the country. Over the years, Minneapolis and St. Paul have built rich theatrical communities based on these traditions.

Today many Twin Cities artists honor tradition by incorporating elements of variety theater in contemporary productions. In this documentary, producers Michelle Alimoradi and Judith McKenzie follow the history of variety theater in the Twin Cities. Meet 93-year-old vaudeville performer and Minneapolis resident Bob Boucher, local historians, and modern Twin Cities variety artists, including Patrick Scully (Patrick’s Cabaret) and Nadine DuBois (Lili’s Burlesque Revue).
