Radio K announces FM Week
With St. Louis Park High School on summer break, Radio K is free to use its FM signal (106.5) 24 hours a day. Ignore the website's outdated signal map; the transmitter was moved a couple months ago, meaning you can now listen to the station's much improved sound just about anywhere in Minneapolis, parts of St. Paul, even into the first ring suburbs. The "K to the Second Power" celebration runs June 20-24 with special post-sunset programming, including midnight performances by Atmosphere and Bridge Club. Finally you can listen to "Skyway" in the skyways, "7th St. Queen" on 7th St., Uptown Jesus in Uptown!
Low and Behold!
Screenwriter and director Cameron Crowe's latest movie, Elizabethtown, finds Orlando Bloom, failed shoe designer, returning to his hometown of Elizabethtown, Kentucky, for his father's funeral. Along the way, he picks up flight attendant Kirsten Dunst, who helps him through his issues. Crowe, who brought his own life as a teenage rock critic to the screen in Almost Famous, and has made music an integral part of his movies Say Anything and Singles, gives the Duluth trio Low a pat on the back by showcasing their Chairkicker's Union t-shirt on the spindly frame of Ms. Dunst. Be the coolest 35-year-old on your block by picking up your own version at Low's online store.
