KMSU Special Programming For November
legendary and notorious musical moments will be celebrated all month long
KMSU Radio has lots of special programming during the month of November, so grab your calendar and plan accordingly!
Is there any truth to the urban legend that Paul McCartney died in 1966 and was replaced by William Campbell, a Canadian lookalike? Many people think there is, and they've spent a ridiculous amount of time scouring recordings for clues on album covers, and in lyrics played forward and backward. Shuffle Function will do their civic duty and reveal all the shocking evidence, featuring all of your favorite Paul McCartney/William Campbell recordings. Requests are welcome.
In 1981 Kiss released their most controversial album. “Music From the Elder” was a massive commercial failure, loathed by their fans and abandoned by the band after it was released. On Wednesday, November 10th, Shuffle Function will celebrate its 40th anniversary by playing the entire album, as well as all of your Kiss favorites, and they'll be doing it in full Kiss makeup, because that makes total sense on the radio, right?
Embrace the Sound and Listen To Your Folks host Steve Guse will be doing his annual Neil Young celebration on Friday, November 12th from 6:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on 89.7 the Maverick. Tune in to hear hits, b-sides, deep cuts, and songs you never imagined you would hear on the radio. It's going to be a great day of radio, and it's only on 89.7 the Maverick!
On November 19th, the 72nd anniversary of James Ensor, Belgium's famous painter, KMSU will be celebrating the music of They Might Be Giants. The radio marathon runs from six a.m. To six p.m., featuring four decades of amazing music, as well as interviews with John Flansburgh and John Linnell. Requests are welcome via text at 507-389-5678. More information can be found at tmbg.love.
Shuffle Function hosts Shyboy Tim and Shelley have been lifelong fans of The Band and The Last Waltz documentary, and they loved the idea of celebrating it on the day it was performed. They put together a show that includes some of their favorite performances from the concert, including many that were not included in the original film and soundtrack album. It's the perfect soundtrack for cooking a humungous turkey and preparing for a day of parades and gluttony, so be sure to listen!
Tune in from 9:00-11:00 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day for The Last Year Of The Beatles (1969-1970), a two hour examination of the twilight of the biggest band in history. It will be a great companion to the Disney+ six hour film that will be airing in three parts on November 25th, 26th & 27th.
Tune in from 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day for George Harrison's Best Year Ever: 1970-1971, an in-depth look at the period immediately following the end of The Beatles and the release of All Things Must Pass, his essential solo album debut.
Join Hank and Dan for the longest ride of the year! It's the 10th annual, LIVE Black Friday/BikeRides 5 hour special! Expect diverse, random and at times (extra) dark programming throughout the day. Get your dark clothes and sunglasses out and do whatever it takes to prepare your mind and body for all the twists, turns and surprises you might encounter - or just skip it and go sheeping, ummm... I mean SHOPPING, with the rest of America.
