Let’s Get TBT on Prairie Home

OK first, this is a first. Me writing to suggest we organize an effort to get someone on the stage of A Prairie Home Companion when the show comes to Duluth in February. It’s not quite like calling a local radio station to request a song, but not all that far off either.

It reminds me of the time I called Sirius XM ’60s on 6 host Phlash Phelps when Duluth was the mystery city of the day. I actually sent him about a dozen quick facts which he used throughout the morning. Patty was not amused.

I like Trampled by Turtles (listening now while I pour through data for a report) and believe they’d be a natural for the PHC audience. So, I’ve posted on the PHC Facebook page suggesting they contact the group to see if they’re available. Maybe you’ll consider a similar post.

Trampled by Turtles seems like a great choice this time around.

Better idea: The Surfactants. Songs about murdering child abusers always go over well with that crowd.

Milan Kovachic sang "The Marseillaise" on PHC when it was last in Duluth.

Duke - That's an awesome idea!  They should definitely play.  I added my support on the PHC FB page.

I could not agree more, I hope it happens.  Thanks for spearheading the PR effort, Duke.

Sonja and Big Country, too! Catch them on Wednesday nights at Carmody.

Nope, I don't like the idea one bit, besides they're too busy already.  And what if they got to playing so fast, they warped into a parallel dimension?

I want to see If Thousands do a 40-minute set.

Heck yeah, mind you Aaron might just fall asleep on stage if they do that. But, perhaps they could incorporate it into the music.

Kyle gets my vote.

According to A Prairie Home Companion's Facebook page, your wish has come true.
