A Night of Film & Theater

Matthew Inkala & The Hostages entertained us with great poppy, rocky, upbeat music.  Cher Dial interviewed the leader of a Heavy Metal Indian (as in East India) band.  Our "Previously" segment reached w-a-a-a-y back a year and a half to present the music of Giravves.  (Not THE Giravves.)

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.

Tribute to innovative and inspired sound archivist, Tony Schwartz.
