The Great Falls: St. Anthony Falls
Produced by Dixie Treichel

The Great Falls, dubbed “St Anthony Falls” by Father Louis Hennepin, evolved during the Ice Age and became the birthplace of Minneapolis. A spiritual place for Native Americans, and especially Dakota people, the Falls have always been a magnet for their beauty and power. European settlers harnessed the water power for lumber and flour mill industries that developed along the banks of the Mississippi, but years of over-use marred the landscape. Today St. Anthony Falls are part of the Mississippi River Historic District. KFAI’s Dixie Treichel produced this documentary for MinneCulture.

Gary Burger of the legendary band The Monks was my special guest this afternoon on our garage rock special.

Also joining in on the hijinks were Steve Kaul of The Brass Kings, Joe Holland of The Fuck Knights, Keith Patterson of Kinda Kinky and tons of other bands, and Angie Pykonen host of KFAI’s “In Your Ear”

What a fun afternoon. We spent it rockin’ out, laughing, and chatting with Gary about the history of The Monks.

Had a guest co-host today. A young man who won my show in an auction. Michael Kimball is a high school student and musician in town and wanted a chance to learn how radio affects live music.

New & old favorites to celebrate the new year!

I spun the Monks and ’60s to present-day garage and garage-punk music as part of KFAI Rocks a week-long event in honor of Gary Burger of the Monks performing 331 Club this Friday. Joe Hastings (The Sex Rays, Hastings 3000) who was a member of the F* Knights when Gary Burger recorded one of their records, joined me spinning Burger/The Monks and favorite early garage and blues songs of the mid-60s.
