Mostly Minnesota Music on WMCN – guest Ian George – theme return

After a long holiday break, Heather and I are back on the air. We have a new time this semester – Saturdays 4-6pm. We were delighted to have Ian George visit us. He just released a new album, The Kingdom of My Youth. We played a few of his songs, including my favorite Kandinsky.

Ian has some interesting and very lucky stories – especially about how the last album was made. So much fun to talk to him. He’s album released party is Thursday (Feb 21) at the Icehouse!

We finished the show with some unreleased songs by J Berg, an emerging musician from Minneapolis. We also had a chance to talk with him over the break. I’ll include the video below.

You can listen to the playlist of the show on Spotify. I’ll include our intended playlist below. As always – the intention doesn’t necessarily match up with what we really played.
