Hey Big Mak isn't that two weeks with Freak Scene? Thanks for stopping by Bill, nice list. George I am always amazed at your Minneapolis-centric music (Jack Logan, Chris Marrs, Peter Himmelman, et. al).

I'm on a Dinosaur Jr. binge. Also 2 weeks in a row with 'Rust Never Sleeps'.

Free, I did go to grad school in Iowa City, so maybe that's part of the reason Minneapolis pops up so much. Plus, I went to college-grad school in the age of the Mats and Husker Du, so there's that too--I mean I even have The Suburbs on vinyl someplace.

Make your own life more simple get the business loans and all you need.
