Rock & Roll

University of Minnesota Press

  KUMD talks with journalist, columnist, and author Rick Shefchik about his newest book, Everybody's Heard About the Bird: The True Story of 1960s Rock 'n' Roll in Minnesota, published in 2015 by the University of Minnesota Press.  Recordings by The Trashmen ("Surfin' Bird"), The Castaways ("Liar, Liar") and The Gestures ("Run, Run, Run") helped place Minnesota on the rock and roll map in that decade.

Listen to our session with this pop/rock performer from September 4, 2015. The Chicago native spent a decade in the Twin Cities before relocating last year to New York City, where she recorded her latest album, Red Letter Day. She performed at the Duluth Armory Music Fest on September 6, 2015.
