January 7th, 2007

Hey All,

Well, 2007 has arrived. Happy new year to all... I meant to post the playlist for the Christmas show, but the holidays got the better of me.

A few non-music topics were mentioned on today's show...

The Anchor Bar in Superior Wisconsin is a wonderful place. Great burgers and an atmosphere in which a guy could write a pretty good folk song. Here's a well written description of the place and here's a Minnesota Public Radio story about the bar and the town (scroll down a few stories and you'll find the story) .

I also mentioned Cheri Register's book Packinghouse Daughter--a great read, especially if you have ties to the Albert Lea/Austin Area (although I don't and still loved the book).

A version of the first chapter of Packinghouse Daughter was orginally published as an essay titled Workshirt Manifesto.

OK...the playlist for January 7th...
