For Tim and I this is the perfect way to celebrate almost a decade of radio. We both heard and fell in love with The Legendary Stardust Cowboy during our first year at KMSU. As you have all heard he was the first person we reached out to in hopes of getting an interview, and the realtionship has continued since then. Back then we also set an unobtainable goal of bringing The Ledge to town. That wish came true May 21st at The Red Sky Lounge, and you can hear the magic for yourselves!
The dream of a double bill of Fleshtones and Legendary Stardust Cowboy began two years ago when we interviewes Peter Zaremba for our Shuffle Function seven year anniversary. He was so much fun to talk with and such a good sport listening to Tim and I geek out over The Fleshtones that I ended the interview telling him our wish for bringing The Fleshtones to Mankato to play a gig with The Legendary Stardust Cowboy. Rather than hanging up on us, he told Tim and I to "make it happen - we will be there". It took some time and a grant to accomplish, but that is exactly what we did.
You can hear all of the craziness and rockin' for yourselves this Thursday night from 6 to 9 p.m. on KMSU 89.7fm. Listen on-line at www.kmsu.org by clicking on the button that says listen on-line. We want to give Gary a big thanks for lending us the two extra hours to air the entire KMSU Listener Appreciation Show.
Last but not least we want to thank you guys - our listeners. I have met and talked with so many amazing and creative people the past nine years of hosting Shuffle Function.You are the best.
