 Who knew when Scott “Starfire” Lunt put together a two-night local music showcase at Duluth’s NorShor Theatre that 20 years later it would still be going strong, spreading out to encompass more than a week of festivities.

Listen to our interview with Daniel Oyinloye and members of the Mixtape Project, a project to engage youth involved in a rehabilitation program and give them the opportunity to write and record their own music inspired by their personal stories. They stopped by our studios on August 16, 2017, to talk with DJ TJ and share tracks from the project. You can hear the tracks mentioned in the interview and more here.
