Jan 27, 2013 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.
We have a content-filled show this weekend! First, Andrea Swensson is going to give us the scoop on the new Prince song and what she learned after interviewing his band this past week. She'll also talk with Adam Levy in advance of the upcoming Tribute To Joe Strummer at First Avenue.
Botzy will also explain the concept behind the newest Best Love Is Free compilation, which came together after over 500 submissions across the country.
And Ellen Stanley, also known as Mother Banjo, will give us the lowdown on her new album The Devil Hasn't Won which features a slew of collaborators including Steve Kaul.
This is our last time to spin Dan Wilson as our artist of the month. Tune in during the first show of February to hear who Barb Abney chose as our next one to feature! And don't forget to RSVP to Local Current Live!
