Mischke Show Notes: Nov. 10, 2009


Today on's 'In The Stream' with T.D. Mischke: A conversation with Paul Metsa.

  • You could never pack Virginia, Minn., native, Paul Metsa, into a convenient music slot. For 30 years he's rambled through the rock, blues, folk, jam band and singer-songwriter scenes with an uncanny literary sensibility and a rock 'n' roll heart nearly as big -- and as torn -- as an open pit mine up on the Range. Now with 30 years and more than 6,000 gigs in the rear view mirror, Metsa is ready to explore his life's work -- and some of its back alleys -- Nov. 27 at the Parkway Theater at 9 p.m. The retrospective, seen through the eye of this rock raconteur, and heard in the musical prowess of invited musicians and special surprise guests, is aptly titled "Skyway to Hell" (the site of his very first gig in town at the Skyway Lounge as the opening act for some strippers).
Tune in from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., and feel free to leave comments about today's show below. Call and talk to Mischke live on the air: (651) 330-4091
