FFFreakout #574-578

August has come and went, which means that summer is now sadly winding down, and we have to get back to our usual workaday grind. It was, however, a fun and eventful month that included great KMSU-sponsored shows in town from David Nance and Simon Joyner, a creative Grant Hart day sponsorship initiated by a…

As is often the case during the summer, the days and weeks seem to slip by in a blur and before you know it August is knocking on the door and you realize you have a bunch of stuff you should get cracking on. Posting the past six weeks of playlists isn’t necessarily high on…

Here’s what has been happening on the weekly Free Form Freakout show for the past month. Yes, despite our best intentions, we’ve once again fallen behind on posting these playlists. In this span of time, though, David caught Julian Koster’s live performance of The Orbiting Human Circus, and Carl saw Alice Cooper perform here locally.…

Here’s what has been happening over the past few busy weeks on the regular Thursday afternoon episodes of Free Form Freakout. We’d like to say thanks to everyone that bought a shirt from us or made a donation directly to KMSU during the recent Spring Pledge Drive. Your support helped the station surpass its $30,000…

April has arrived and there are some great things happening locally this month that have us pretty exited. Next weekend, on April 15th & 16th, the 10th annual Post-Holiday Extravaganza is taking place in Mankato. This event, headed up by the non-profit group Midwest Art Catalyst, includes an art raffle, silent auction, bake sale, beer,…

So, here’s what has been happening on the weekly Free Form Freakout show over the past four weeks. In that time span, we started off by observing the sad passing of Hideo Ikeezumi, founder of the legendary Japanese experimental music label P.S.F. Records, and we moved through some busy weeks with shows that were peppered…

Three more weeks have passed and three more FFF shows are in the can. During that time we went from record breaking warm weather to buzzworthy blizzard warnings, from brand new releases to recent bargain bin finds, from scuzzy lo-fi rockers to delicate drone folk drift, from Pumice to Parsons and plenty more. Thanks for…

FFFreakout #547-549

On the last couple of weeks on Free Form Freakout’s regular Thursday show we touched on such topical matters as the January thaw out, the cold & flu outbreak, the sad passing of Can’s Jaki Liebezeit and Nigerian future funk mystery man William Onyeabor, and the selection of resistance music. Oh, and a Free Form…

FFFreakout #543-546

Here’s what has been happening on the weekly FFF show through the holidays and up to this past week: the obligatory holiday-themed show, an extended three-hour fill-in shift, and some 2016 favorites sprinkled throughout. Hope your 2017 is off to a solid start. FFFreakout #546 (Aired on 1/12/17):  Bill Callahan “Footprints” from Woke On A…

FFFreakout #539-542

As the year is starting to wind down, we thought we’d post another round of our weekly show playlists that span the last four weeks. We’ll likely have some type of holiday-themed show next week that Carl customarily takes the lead on, but look for David’s usual Tijuana Christmas and Fahey contributions. After that, we’ll…
