Every week I try to find the best representations of Minnesota music, like Walt Mink, who's album was listed as one of the top debuts in the country in the early 90s, and The Roe Family Singers, who sing old time music better than most. 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.
