Many KFAI programmers have set aside time during their shows to salute our recently departed friend (and former KFAI DJ) Willie Murphy. Willie was a frequent guest on our airwaves over the years, and we’ve gone digging through the archives to repost some of our favorite moments. Watch this space throughout the week for new/old shows, memorials and testimonials.
UPDATE: These archives have been moved from our servers to SoundCloud to allow them to stay online past our 2 week restriction.
More than 50 volunteer singers comprise the Minneapolis-based Prairie Fire Lady Choir. They sing everything from Metallica to Prince and perform at record stores, zombie pub crawls, and protests. Rather than employing an artistic director, the choir uses consensus decision-making to guide their collective musical vision. KFAI’s Ryan Dawes spoke with members of the choir at a recent rehearsal.

How would the Mississippi River look if it was allowed to flow naturally down the hundred-foot drop between downtown Minneapolis and Fort Snelling?
Ron Way is a former staffer for the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency and the U.S. Department of the Interior, and has done environmental reporting for several Midwest newspapers.
Way says the Mississippi in the metro area could become a kayaker’s paradise, revitalize the tourist draw to the river, and keep the carp downstream for good. He spoke with KFAI’s Paul Brohaugh, who asked him to describe his vision for the river.
Ask nearly any Minnesotan about lutefisk and you’re likely to get a funny answer, especially from Minnesotans with Scandinavian roots. In this episode of “MinneHistory” we explore a controversial subject: Lutefisk. The fragrant and gelatinous Scandinavian-American codfish delicacy has long been associated with Minnesota. People love to celebrate – and poke fun at – this traditional immigrant food. What is Lutefisk, and how is it made? And why is it so smelly? KFAI’s Jess Mador finds out with a visit to Olsen Fish Company, the largest lutefisk producer.
