The Ledge #69: Matt Mauch

My old friend Matt Mauch was one of the original founders of Tempest Magazine, and is now a professor in Minneapolis. He recently released his first book of poetry, Prayer Book, and while in Sioux Falls for a reading he made it over to The Ledge studio to share some of his favorite tunes. Along with the music, we discussed some of our favorite shows, and Mauch also talked about interesting meetings with Jello Biafra, Dave Pirner, and many others.

You can download the show via iTunes (and why not leave a review while you're at it?), or directly download it here. Prayer Book can be found at all of the usual online book retailers, including Amazon. Here's Matt's musical selections for this episode:
