Twin Cities public TV sends in the Turtles to debut new show

The Lowertown Line, a new show by TPT’s Minnesota Original public television project, made its debut this week. (I saw this on MinnPost).

Of course, you know I have been brewing the Great Northern Radio Show for a year now, an original music and comedy venue for our times. Right? Yeah, you knew that.
