MPR's Minnewiki is our online Minnesota Music Encyclopedia. Just like the famous Wikipedia, anyone can don the hat of author, editor, or reader. For trivia fans or those of us who are simply looking for an educated time-waster, there's a door for discovery: The Random page navigation link.
Go ahead, be brave. Give it a click and see where you land. I ran a trio of tries and ended up with these results:
*Hello, legend. First landing page is for Twin/Tone records, the label that brought us the Suburbs. You might have heard of them...
*Next click: Rockabilly hero Eddie Cochran was born in Albert Lea, Minnesota. Figure that! Seems to me there's more to his life, so roll up your sleeves and add what you know.
*Finally I discovered a little page about a small St. Paul band called Nobody Move. I haven't heard of them, and their article is in need of some cleanup. Volunteers?
