The Local Show

Join David Campbell as he and the Local Team explore Minnesota's local music scene, both past and present.

The Local Show with Big Zach and Motion City Soundtrack at McNally Smith

Listen The Local Show for December 11, 2011

Dec 11, 2011 Join Minnesota Public Radio's David Campbell as he explores the Twin Cities local music scene, both past and present. Tune in to hear rare songs, live tracks, and in-studio performances.


On this week's episode of The Local Show, I'll be joined in the studio by Zach Combs, also known as Big Zach or New MC. You might know Zach from seeing him perform with Kanser or More Than Lights or from his years of diligent booking, promoting, and hosting shows in the Twin Cities hip-hop scene. Now he's written a book called Headspin, Headshots & History: Growing up in Twin Cities Hip Hop. Tune in and hear all about it as well as some of Zach's favorite cuts - none of which have ever been heard on this station.

In hour two, we will be re-airing highlights from a performance by Motion City Soundtrack and an interview I did with them for the McNally Smith Soundbite Series a few weeks back.

That, plus music from Polica, Big Quarters, Valet, The Daredevil Christopher Wright, and new stuff from Friends By Fire, Buildings and The Magnolias.
