On Thursday morning, Brandon was invited to the Minnesota Public Radio studios in St. Paul to be interviewed by Dale Connelly, host of the Saturday night “Radio Heartland” program. Brandon also acted as “guest DJ,” sharing songs that span the lifetime of his musical influences and inspiration, ranging from John Denver to Wilco.
In the interview, Brandon shares about the experience that started his musical journey– a severe hand injury from a farming accident when he was 9 years old– that led him to playing guitar for rehabilitation. As his hand healed, his love for music grew, and soon he convinced his brother to join him on drums, and their longtime friend Barry to join in with a keyboard. Years later, the three boys found their bass player, Dezi and Six Mile Grove was born.
The interview will air this Saturday Night – September 12th at 9PM on Minnesota Public Radio News stations: “Radio Heartland” with Dale Connelly
