So after I wrote my piece on my suggestion that Bruce Springsteen’s “This Hard Land” was the song that best symbolized where America is at today, I actually got a call from ‘em – they liked my submission, and interviewed me for the show.
It ran last night at 9PM – and it was a fascinating listen throughout. The MPR people did – and I mean no offense by this – a more balanced job than I expected. And the production job of getting my ten minute interview cut and pasted to slot into gaps in the song itself? From one radio production geek to another, well done.
Here’s the whole thing. I’m early in the second half of the show.
I’m around 34:30 into it, although the whole thing is worth a listen.
