1/13 in a nutshell…
The sound of the opening oldies set is starting to mutate… hey, 2Tone is in its 30s, those Specials, Selecter and Madness classics are officially Oldies and as we do more filling-in-the-gaps of Ska’s lost decade (the ’70s) there are simply more oldies to play now, and Hour 1 will certainly reflect that as Ska progresses into Century 21, Decade 2. Adding another candle to the cake this week: Suggs from Madness, and lates Roland Alphonso and Vic Mizzy. Rest in peace, or if you prefer, make some noise in the great beyond! The 4(+1)@4 mutated from the very first track as the wrong cd kicked off the set, and GotchaSKAvered features Annette doin’ the Jamaica Ska this week. Now bow your head…

The 1970s Co-op Wars
Produced by Maria Almli

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.

Interviews include:

Gail Graham
Craig Cox
David Gutknecht
Dean Zimmermann
Bob Malles
Dan Nordley
Annie Young
Kristin Garwick
Lynette Malles
