Mostly MN Music back on air with Mike Michel (The Orange Goodness) and Theme – Time

It felt great to be back in the studio at WMCN 91.7fm today! Lots of things went wrong – we don’t care. Lots of things went right! First to be back in the studio again felt amazing – to simply enjoy sharing music that we love and music that we’re just learning about. Over our pandemic hiatus we have interviewed more than 150 artists for the Mostly MN Music podcast. Subsequently, we have a personal connection now to many of the bands we play. That’s super fun. Second we had an awesome guest.

Mike Michel from The Orange Goodness joined us. What an amazing guitar player! Watching him at close range was almost as good as hearing him. We talked about the band’s upcoming release, Flying Under the Radar of Chaos – to be released October 26. It’s cosmic pop rock. IT was fun to fun to see Mike perform a song live and then hear the (sneak peek!) of another songs from the album with the full band. As awesome as Mike is alone, their work together is so complete. We talked about collaboration and music scene in Minneapolis and the new album.

Also a huge thank you to Mike for being flexible and accommodating. Turns out only one of the mics in the studio was working. There was a lot of passing the mic and making room for techs trying to fix the issue and he just rolled with it. (Bum mic was one of the wrong things. Eventually we started sharing and the chit chat made more sense.)

Next week’s theme is (fall) colors – let us know if you have a recommendation. This week the theme was Time – because it’s been such a long time since we’ve had time together like this!

The playlist below is in reverse chronological order; Mike jumped in after Silverback Colony. (I know the chart will be hard to read, you can also listen to our aspirational playlist – usually longer than actual on Spotify.)
