I think I've documented here before how much I love Nikki Tundel's work here, mostly for the Current. Put her in a studio with my other favorite person at MPR -- Mary Lucia -- and the result is a different perspective on politics.
The November elections are less than a month away. What are voters thinking about at this point in the political process? Reporter Nikki Tundel went to find out.
Here, hear for yourself.
One of the ideas I gave Nikki, and anyone else who would listen -- shortly before throwing my idea in the dustheap of history -- is a segment where each candidate would give us a tour of their CD collections.
Now I'm trying to determine whether there's still enough of a sense of humor out there to write a piece guessing on what's in each candidate's musical stash.
Avoiding any use of the adjective "best," Robert Fitzgerald has, hands down, the hippest musical taste. I frist ran into the maverick candidate at a First Avenue appearance of Built To Spill, and I don't recall seeing any other candidate at the State Fair grandstand for Sonic Youth and the Flaming Lips.
Nikki's piece was, as usual, awesome.
