If you didn't get enough of me on local radio Sunday night, you have another chance Thursday, January 12th when I'll be a guest and interviewee during Mary Lucia's 89.3 "The Current" broadcast from Gluek's Bar and Restaurant (16 North 6th Street, Minneapolis.) Mary's airshift is every weekday from 3 and 7 PM. This is the first in what is hoped to be a series of Current live broadcasts from the downtown bar and music venue.
I've been a fan of Mary's musical contributions to this town since her days at Rev 105 which seems like forever ago now. More recently I've followed her Rebel Rebel: "Rock For Pussy" Bowie tribute and benefit shows at First Avenue in both 2004 and 2005.
Thursday afternoon, Mary will also be talking with my pal DJ Jake Rudh, and musician Marc Perlman (who, incidentally was one of the first people I became acquainted with when I moved to The Twin Cities in 1988), as well as theater critic Dominic Papatola, whom I'm looking forward to meeting.
Normally when promoting a radio program, I'd say "tune in!" but since this one's taking place in a cosy downtown bar where the drinks will definitely be flowing, I'm going to suggest that if you can, just come on down and enjoy Happy Hour with Mary as your DJ. That can only be a good thing.
Here's the tentative interview schedule:
- 3:50 DJ Jake Rudh
- 4:50 Musician Marc Perlman
- 5:50 David de Young (i.e. me)
- 6:30 Theater critic Dominic Papatola
