NewsTune: Could That Someone Be "Tim The Pen..."

tim-the-knife3.jpgI've collaborated a few times recently with listeners on music for the show, but here's our first musical collaboration across MPR services...(ooooh...)

I'm pleased to present the first joint Dale Connelly-Jeff Horwich project.

Take Dale's spot-on lyrics, add my ability to sing apparently without shame or self-consciousness and vaguely like Bobby Darin, and you have a catchy little riff on Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty's budget-slashing episode.

Dale (if you don't know -- who doesn't know?) hosted the Morning Show for years and now hosts Radio Heartland here at MPR. Props to Dale for the Pawlenty-Bobby Darin photo mashup as well.

Let's do this again sometime, eh?

(Hungry for more? Here are two more recent NewsTunes from the show.)

Perfect amount of channeling Bobby Darin--it was just enough to make your voice fit the song to a T. (Dang, I wish I had your job!)
