Iowa Basement Tapes #22 - 11/29/2018

Night Listeners,

This week I am in the KFMG studios with studio manger Gary Monte interviewing filmmaker Jack Meggers about his life in Mason City during the grunge era of the 90s. We play his band Ming's Daughter as well as fellow northern Iowa bands Todd's Neat Futons and Sorry Excuse. Jack left Iowa for fifteen years and returned in 2014 where he was reintroduced to Iowa's music scene. He brings on a handful of tracks that have inspired in creatively since returning to the state.

Listen to us on 98.9 KFMG - LP Des Moines and KCOE - Coe College Cedar Rapids. Catch up on the archives via iTunes.
