The year Joel Hodgson spent in Duluth

joel-hodgsonOn the Halloween episode of The Dana Gould Hour, guest Joel Hodgson briefly mentions his family lived in Duluth for a year. The conversation had steered to small-town television shows and personalities, and Hodgson recalled “picturesque slides of lighthouses” and how it gave a “mood of where you were.”

Hodgson, of course, is best known as the creator of the hit television show Mystery Science Theater 3000.

“We lived in Duluth for like a year,” Hodgson says in the interview, but it must have been a short year and when he was young, because his geography got fuzzier when he added, “it’s on Lake Michigan, right?”

The big question is, does Hodgson remember the WDIO Viking?
