St. Paul, Minn. —
Kings don't always wear crowns. And just how are you going to keep the kids out of the frozen Christmas cookies? This week's Music with Minnesotans features two unconventional stories with music to match.
Patricia Breien takes listeners back to 1960s Norway for a story about the King who got away, and Alan Law (and his mom, Ellen) share the tale of car rides into Grant Wood's American Gothic. It's a holiday tale with a cast that includes two guinea pigs named Ruth and Rachel.
In-flight entertainment: cello and beatbox
En route to Denver, a cellist and a flight attendant teamed up to treat the other passengers to an improvised cello/beatbox duet of a piece by Bach. Watch a video of the performance.
