Sven B. Schreiber Lately I didn't have much time for music adventures, because I was busy on family holidays in Velingrad, Bulgaria. It's a wonderful place in the mountains with excellent SPA opportunities! Don't miss it. And the latest "Arches" album is a wonderful item in my collection with wonderful listening opportunities! Don't miss it. Favorite track: Albert Street Band.


Drive: to move or travel on land in a motor vehicle, especially as the person controlling the vehicle's movement.

Rust: a red-brown substance that forms on the surface of iron and steel as a result of decay caused by reacting with air and water.

The Minneapolis, Minnesota general strike of 1934 grew out of a strike by Teamsters Local 574 against most of the trucking companies operating in Minneapolis, the major distribution center for the Upper Midwest United States. The strike began on May 16, 1934 in the Market District (the modern day Warehouse District). The worst single day was Friday, July 20, called "Bloody Friday", when police shot at unarmed strikers in a downtown truck battle, killing two and injuring 67. Ensuing violence lasted periodically throughout the summer. The strike was formally ended on August 22.

As with all of our Lo-Fi adventures:
Drive, stay safe, keep moving, be grateful, love each other, don't rust.
