Breaking news!

I will be joined in the studio today by Ed Miller, a union representative for District Lot 6 in Iowa and Nebraska to explain why over 200 employees of the Dexter plant are on strike following recent contract disputes.  Employees of the Fairfield Manufacturer, who are members of the Machinists Union from Dexter Apache Holdings Inc, took to the picket lines at midnight Saturday after they voted not to proceed with the contract that was presented to them.

Please join me and my guest, as well as James Moore who has been on the story most of the morning, for an indepth and close up look at a very emotional issue. Representatives from Dexter Apache declined to join the discussion but did issue a statement.

The interview with Ed Miller on the ongoing machinists' strike will be rebroadcast today Monday April 16 at 6:30pm following Free Speech Radio News and Wednesday morning April 18 at 7am.

This Saturday we'll have generations of A Fistful of Dallers' music. The first KRUU live feed from Café Paradiso, 8-10pm, (see James' recent post), will feature Adrien Daller singing accompanied by her brother Dain Daller on synthesized tracks, and by me, Doug Daller on piano.

Then my KRUU show, A Fistful of Daller's, 10-12pm, will feature the history of rock 'n' roll in the Daller family. My oldest brother, Bill Daller, will bring in his collection of the first 45 records in the Daller household. This, and AM radio in Detroit, is how my brothers and I got introduced to rock 'n' roll when it first began in the early 1950's.

Isn't this something?  Last week we were interviewing Gary Garles about the wonderful weather and gardening and now if you go out you will see SNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!    I want to apologize!  I feel like it's all our fault. It's just like when you wash your car or plan a picnic and it know it was your fault the weather gods have turned.  Sorry folks perhaps we should now interview a storm chaser so the skies would clear.

So much for global warming. 

I call it Techno, you may call it something else. Heavy beat, funny sounds, odd lyrics, atmosphere- all from my small explorations into this genre since 1990 or so. I will feature a German 2 disc compilation, and survey some American bands. As usual, there will be at least one song that saw very limited release....... hee hee

 Adrien Daller

Adriane Daller, in town from across the Pond for three performances this weekend at Cafe Paradiso, will be interviewed on "Around Town" this Wednesday at 8:30 am. She will be joined by her accompanist, Doug Daller, aka Dad.

My co-host, Teri Font, and I will provide the probing questions.  And if we're lucky, Adriane will show off her pipes.
