This “Live from Minnesota” segment features the Brass Messengers—a Twin Cities’ band that formed from the Heart of the Beast May Day parade. With Caribbean and Balkan influences, the Brass Messengers describe themselves as, “a sprawling fun factory of musicians.” This show was recorded at the Ritz Theater in Minneapolis on March 12, 2012, and features contributions from the Yale Women’s Slavic Chorus. For more information on the Brass Messengers, visit brassmessengers.com. Produced for KFAI by Daniel Zamzow.
Hey Baby, it's the 4th of July. So said Mr. Dave Alvin. It was fun smearing the airwaves with tunes on this holiday edition of Freewheelin'. And, it was great to hear from so many people who don't usually get to listen to the show live due to work, school, or other commitments. Ah, holidays, I love the way they bring people together.
