April Playlists

What an April! A very successful pledge drive was had by KMSU and we can't thank our listeners enough for stepping up and showing how much you value KMSU and it's local programming. I am honored to be a part of this station and associated with the great hosts that bring music to southern Minnesota and northern Iowa's ears.

The show featured some great new music by Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit from their album "Here We Rest", gave a listen to Radiohead's new release "The King of Limbs", and checked out some sweet music released exclusively on Record Store Day (thanks Carl!). I'm crossing my fingers for a quick interview with Jason when he comes to town to rock the Turf Club in May. Embrace the Sound also welcomed guest host Drew Lyon. Drew used to host "The Porch" on KMSU, does some great writing for the Free Press and works at your friendly local music store Tune Town. Drew brings a perfect flavor to the show and I hope to have him on many times in the future.

I also kept busy attending a few shows in April. Mike Watt and the Missingmen rocked "hyphenated man" at the Turf Club, Ray Manzarek and Roy Rogers played an intimate show at the baeutiful Paramount Theater in Austin, MN, and the PIXIES totally slayed the Legendary Roy Wilkins Auditorium. My co-worker George got his hands on a set list from the PIXIES show and I have it hanging proudly on my board at work, you rock George!!
