Every week the Wisconsin State Journal runs “Roughneck Grace,” a weekly column written by Mike (many of the columns will be adapted from Mike’s Tent Show Radio monologues). This week’s “Roughneck Grace,” titled, ‘Sunday night sads’ can be seen online here.
If you’re within range of (or can stream) one of these stations tonight (Saturday, July 14th) we hope you’ll join Mike as he hosts another edition of Tent Show Radio from Big Top Chautauqua. In between all the music, Mike tells a story about falling asleep under a tree in the woods. Information on streaming the show here.
This week’s show welcomes guest Josh Ritter, with additional performances by Michael Perry and the Long Beds, and the Blue Canvas Orchestra.You can join the Tent Show Radio Facebook page here, and many previous Tent Show Radio episodes available for streaming anytime – just click here.
Did a quick, quiet, garage recording of the poem from the 37d03d MIXTAPE performance at Eaux Claires. Text and audio here.
This morning I fed the chickens, turned in an essay, and drove my young one to class in our old minivan. Back to the day-to-day. But the echoes left by these folks remain in my heart and in the air.
