Click my link on PRX to hear the whole show. See if you can find the place where I sneak in New Orlean's son Trombone Shorty.

Every Friday afternoon, we seek out the best in music from our great state--from the hyper local music of Harmonica Rich to Grammy Award winner, Dan Wilson. We just like good music and bringing it to you Fridays from 2-4 and 10-Midnight on Centerstage Minnesota.
