It’s the second week of pledge drive! Tonight’s program features the music which listeners may receive as a thank-you gift for pledging during the Bonjour Minnesota program. In addition, we will include other works, both from past and current artists.

Caryl will give the announcements of French-speaking films now playing locally as well as the many events of interest to French speakers and the general public. Olaf will give some news of the elections in Senegal.


We speak with author Bart Schneider about his newest Augie Boyer mystery, Nameless Dame: Murder on the Russian River. Bart Schneider was the founding editor of Hungry Mind Review and Speakeasy Magazine, and he has written a collection of poetry as well as four previous novels. He will be reading April 10 at Once Upon a Crime in Minneapolis and April 12 at Micawber’s in St. Paul.

We also chat with surprise guest Jules Nyquist about her poetry and how important it is to support KFAI and Write On! Radio — a unique community-based radio station and a fantastic program unlike any other around the country.

Thank you for your generous support of KFAI, Rollin’ & Tumblin’ and the Full Bodied Blues! Yes, there is a play list below however the tunes are not listed in the order of play. Too much going on at pledge drive time to keep track “officially”.

More pledge drive fun with special guest Ruthie Foster!


I hosted special guest bloodnstuff’s Ed Holmberg talking about and spinning songs from their brand new s/t record release! Also guest DJ Ryan Bouchey shared favorite songs from Nick ‘n’ Eddie artists!

Did you know that on April 3, 1973, Motorola exec Martin Cooper introduced the first cell? It was bigger than his head and weighed about 5 lbs, but thanks to Marty it’s easy today to call KFAI and make a pledge! Liberty Finch is standing by at 612-375-9030 to take your call, while DJ Izzy mans the wheels of steel. Thanks to all who’ve pledged and to rap partners Scott G. Hanson and Larry Englund for their support. Giving is fun!
