Think of “co-ops” and you might conjure up images of bulk food stores and tie-dye wearing hippies. But in the 1970s, co-op wars raged in the Twin Cities, dividing communities and fracturing the young movement.
In this documentary, producer Maria Almli interviews those who were there. Learn how the co-op wars began—when a secretive group in support of Marxist principles began retooling operations for the newly emerging hippie grocery stores—and how members found themselves in the midst of a car bombing and violent takeovers.
Another heavy dub installment…with new tunes from: Citizen Sound meets Aldubb, Natanja (mixed, mastered, and presented by Moshi Kamachi), Tony Dubshot, Dub Elements, Mastermind XS, Empresarios (on Fort Knox), Mark Wonder & McPullish, Anna Genima, Rashani, and Igor Boxx.
Stanley West joins us to talk about his novel Blind Your Ponies, an inspiring and heartwarming story of the lives of people in the rundown town of Willow Creek, Montana, and the high school basketball team’s quest to win after five years of losing every single game.
Also joining us in the studio is William C. Hammond with his newest maritime novel, For Love of Country. Set in the early 1780s in the years following the American Revolution, the novel follows the adventures of the seafaring Cutler family of Hingham, Massachusetts, and the supporting cast from the first novel of the series, A Matter of Honor.
