Mostly Minnesota Music on WMCN – theme holiday – guests The Big Wu and Vicky Emerson

Heather and I have successfully completed one semester of radio shows. And I feel like they might have us back next semester. It was awesome to have Mark and Chris from The Big Wu and Vicky Emerson on the show. And our super special guest Kathy – Heather’s mom. She’s great! I thought the Big WU might be taking her on the road.

Vicky helped us start off the show. She brought her guitar and it was just like having a private concert. It was fun to talk to her about the growing scene of women musicians in town. How supportive they are and the increasing prevalence. And it was great to have Big Wu. They are an institution. It was fun to reminisce about back in the day and to hear about their new album. I’m hoping they will be hitting the festival scene this spring and I get a chance to see them.

I am hoping to add the archive of the show later. (But wanted to get the notes out now.) There was a hiccup in the computer that saves the show. The mouse quit working, which meant we couldn’t get to anything. And then I was a day after surgery so I wasn’t my finest for tech troubleshooting either. The station is closed up for the holidays now but I will get the archive up later.
