Mike Wiebe is a musician, actor, and stand-up comedian from Texas. Originally from Denton, he now lives in Austin. Wiebe is the lead singer of several nationally known Austin-based bands including Drakulas, High Tension Wires, and his most longstanding group, Riverboat Gamblers, with whom he has released six albums since 1997. Wiebe is known for a high-energy performance style which has led to frequent accidental self-injury, which, in turn, has fed back into his iconic status in Texas punk rock. He suffered a collapsed lung after a crowd-surfing accident in 2016. He once accidentally broke a gas main while swinging from the rafters of a club in Denton, Texas, filling the room with flammable gas. Since 2013, his work has also turned increasingly toward comedy, including two works released by Grammy-winning comedy label Stand Up! Records. Mike Wiebe is really one of the coolest people I know, a true artist. I can't believe we're pals. We close out the show with Worried About Me by Mike & Ian's Sidehustle (w/ Ian from Riverboat Gamblers) and Shame by Drakulas.

“Red Wing Chamber Chat” Jack Colwell speaks with Red Wing Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Michelle Larson with a recap of their Red Wing Chamber Golf Outing from last Thursday and looked ahead to the Riverboat schedule for this weekend.
Today's conversation features Captain William Lozier, President of Memphis Riverboats. William is a third-generation riverboat captain. The boats that he pilots were designed and built by his grandfather. His organization is the embodiment of a local, family-owned business, and William intends to keep it that way, with plans to eventually pass the business on to his daughters. These family-centric values have made Memphis Riverboats a community landmark. This has allowed William to build great relationships, not only with his customers, but also the city officials he depends on in order to operate his business smoothly. These strong relationships have helped William's business through difficult times. Memphis Riverboats has operated unceasingly since the 1950s, including through the Covid-19 pandemic. It's an outstanding example of the strengths of family-owned businesses, and how building strong community relationships can be one of the most powerful assets a company has. More than the bottom line, it's his family's legacy that motivates William to succeed. While he keeps his mind focused on the daily tasks at hand, he always has one eye on the future and the leadership he will eventually pass on to his daughters.

Settled along the Rivers of America, a moment of pause beneath the shade of the Liberty Tree is the perfect place to reflect on the significance of this space. Looking out towards the Rivers of America, the steady churn of the Liberty Belle and her unmistakable whistle remind us of what it takes to breathe life into this American dream. Be resolute and bold. Be consistent and true. Neither this country nor Walt himself ever embarked on a new journey under the illusion that the path that lay ahead would be unencumbered or easy. We stumble, and we get up. We make mistakes, and we correct and learn from them. We reflect on our values and we keep moving forward…as a Nation, as a people, and as dreamers and doers of all ages and walks of life. And so as you wander through the spaces that comprise this foray into the America of “Once Upon a Time,” listen for the sounds that echo through the centuries; the sounds that tell a story of victory and triumph, of failure and loss, of growth and the unwavering hope we have in tomorrow. America is not a fantasy; it's no longer a new frontier. But nestled between those two lands, it is a space to find a moment to pause, a moment to reflect on how far we've come on our journey as a nation, and as individual people, and how much more there still is to learn and discover. Together. And it's in that frame of mind that we find joy, for wherever the path ahead might lead, we can always find our way back Here to this space where Magic is not so much marked by pixie dust as it is by a flag proudly waving in a warm summer breeze. Its broad stripes and bright stars are a beacon of hope, a promise of freedom, and an endeavor to create an even bolder and brighter tomorrow than the one we know today. The American Dream…right Here With the Magic. Welcome to Liberty Square.

The Willamette River was running high and wild on the morning of Feb. 5, 1890, as Alden and Arthur Graham set out from Oregon City in their sternwheel riverboat for the daily run to Portland. They arrived in Portland in what must have been record time, dodging logs and small floating buildings along the way, and promptly canceled the return trip. It was just too dangerous to even try charging into the teeth of all the fast-moving debris. But after they arrived, they learned that theirs was the only riverboat between Willamette Falls and the Portland bridges — and there were some things floating down the river that could potentially damage or even destroy those bridges. So, back out into the torrent they went, to the rescue. (Oregon City, Clackamas County; 1890s, 1900s) (For text and pictures, see http://offbeatoregon.com/1912e.steamboat-culture-graham-line.html)

Visit The Website: https://herewiththemagic.com Watch Here: https://www.youtube.com/HereWithTheMagic Watch the companion video to this podcast Here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b3BUvKpcjQU Connect on Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/herewiththemagic Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/herewiththemagic/ ----- (2:48) Along the serene Rivers of America and nestled on the grassy banks, there is an island hidden in the heart of the marshy wilderness. Most who explore the tumbleweed town of Frontierland on the opposite shore spare little more than a glance for the landscape beyond, but we who have known its Magic head for the docks at the edge of Thunder Mesa, eager to board a raft headed for the outskirts of Tom Sawyer Island. There is something spiritual, a palpable shift that happens when we board our river raft and leave the mainland of the Magic Kingdom behind. It is a sense of intentional departure…a quest! We are embarking on an adventure into the sovereign state of childhood daydreams, where boundless imaginations and inexhaustible summer afternoons meant uninhibited exploration. It is a place where we are invited to remember what it felt like to wonder so expansively, to wander so freely and fearlessly, creating worlds far more rich with possibility than the ones we inhabited. Arriving at Huck's Landing, we find ourselves standing on an unassuming wooden dock overlooking the sprawling Kingdom beyond. Suddenly, in a place where every detail has not been contrived for us, our imaginations whir into action, imposing context and stirring memories to fill in these very deliberate gaps. (6:36) Winding pathways and lush, overgrown trees entice our curiosity, and even the steady rainfall could not squelch that delight so reminiscent of youth. Jump in a puddle - we dare you! It's good for the soul. Around Here, a rainy day only adds to the mystery and excitement, and we have a feeling we're about to encounter plenty of both. (8:30) Named for the man who penned the tales of Tom Sawyer and his friends, Fort Langhorne pays tribute to Samuel Longhorn Clemens, more popularly recognized by his pen name: Mark Twain. A fortress accessible only by suspension bridge, Fort Langhorne holds surprises around every corner. (15:06) Inside the fort, we spot a horse barn and stables, complete with groomers keeping the animals snug and dry inside. But we who are fearless in the face of danger (and puddles) climb to the top of Fort Langhorne, scouting our trail from the lookout points and wending our way back down through the secret escape tunnel. On our way back and halfway across Superstition Bridge, we are met by breathtaking views of the Magic Kingdom. Here, we catch a glimpse of how far we've traveled, castaways onto the island of eternal youth. (29:00) Back on the main island, it seems that Tom and Huck have anticipated the arrival of kindred explorers, and have put up some very helpful sign posts to direct us this way and that. “Barrel Bridge,” “Tom and Hucks Way,” and “The Other Way” leave a lot to the imagination, but as we're guests on the imaginative playground of those two characters, it seems only fitting that we follow their sound advice. Plus, finding a quiet moment to take in a beautiful view is always our inclination, so off to the Barrel Bridge we go! (30:55) A waterside pathway along the Rivers of America, a vista of still more captivating views of Liberty Square and Frontierland stretches out before us. Jutting out into the water and creating the illusion that we are held between one world and the next, this is perhaps the most serene spot in the entire park. We are neither a part of the scene nor disconnected from it. We are simply Here, held in a suspension of disbelief, a suspension of time and reality that engulfs us so entirely in the moment, we might remain for hours or even days without losing a single second. (31:09) As if more tranquility could not be contained in a single space, we stumble upon a waterfall trickling down a hillside, a sort of creek flowing in cadence with the rain, an entrancing sort of elemental rhythm to slow our pace and give us pause. We hear the distant echo of the Liberty Belle setting sail for its sightseeing voyage, and not for the first time today, the image of a life spent blissfully in this riverbank paradise flickers across our minds like a sepia-toned memory of a reality that never was. (34:00) It is this moment, more than our arrival or any we have experienced so far, which sets the tone for the rest of our journey. It is through this lens, a sort of extended release joy, through which we watch the delighted explorers wending their way through Scavenger's Fort, their wonder enlivened with every new discovery and winding wooden trail. It is Here, in this mindfulness, that we watch an Ibis rest serenely at the edge of the creek, not wanting or worrying for anything at all. Who'd have thought that Here, on this playground inspired by Mark Twain's exuberant imagination, we would find incontrovertible peace. Magic, some might call it. (38:34) And speaking of Magic, perhaps the most spellbinding space we'll encounter on this island is not for the faint of heart (nor the helplessly claustrophobic). Old Scratch's Mystery Mine is a feat of engineering, optical illusion, and a place only an imagination sustained by youth could conjure. At the dark and ominous entrance to the cavern, Tom Sawyer himself has left us a note, advising that we “keep a sharp eye out” and “dont stop for nuthin” as we call upon our courage and wander inside. Along narrow pathways we meander, our curiosity quelling any apprehension. (39:15) Up ahead, we spy a waterfall which seems to have spared no thought for such concepts us “gravity,” streaming ever upward and catching the light of dozens of glittering jewels waiting to be mined. A dazzling treasure, to be sure, but not the most priceless one we've found on our excursion to Tom Sawyer Island. Our minds retreating to what other quiet moments of joy our journey might have in store, we find reprieve from the cave's confinement in the wide open space outside and the refreshing rainfall still falling all around us. (41:19) Potter's Mill stands sentinel on the edge of the Rivers of America, charming and quaint and beautifully preserved in time. Home to several songbirds who undoubtedly have found a haven in the rafters from the “some no good” who scared them away from the grist mill nearby. (44:40) All at once retrieved from our reverie by the unmistakable clickety-clack of a runaway mine train and the even more recognizable screams of mingled fear and delight, we give way once more to that unguarded inquisition, and set off in pursuit of one last, daring adventure. (46:57) Spelunking through the Cave of the mysteriously elusive “Injun Joe,” we find a hideout sporting a fascination of fossils embedded into stone walls, which jut out and reach toward the ceiling in the oddest formations that almost resemble...faces? An eerie whistle of wind creeps through the cavern, and a bridge over a bottomless pit seems the only way through, the most bracing test of our courage thus far. Though, some satirical jungle cruise skippers might speculate that the return to civilization is far more foreboding. (49:47) And so we pluck up our courage for that great feat, and head back out into the drizzle, which seems to have lightened during our cave exploration. Harper's Mill seems to thrive on a more pervasive deluge, its water wheel churning around and around the grist mill in ceaseless earnest, collecting what it can from the low, gray clouds. A quintessential scene of the old, deep south, this scene calls to mind sprawling front porches and slow harmonica serenades. We can picture ourselves rocking away until the stars scatter the countryside sky, sipping sweet tea and listening to the childhood tales of generations. And as the Liberty Belle churns along the Rivers of America, sightseers enamored by the quaint little island they'll only ever know from afar, we wear the secret of this place like a smile. Suddenly, the idea of leaving this place is not met with fretful hesitation. It's not truly goodbye, after all, but “see you real soon.” (51:00) Like a farewell to a lifelong friend, not unlike what Tom and Huck might exchange at summer's end, we know we'll meet again someday. When that day comes, we'll pick up right where we left off (and maybe, finally, finish whitewashing that fence). For now, we've got a blissful afternoon full of memories to see us through, a wonderland of wandering to embark upon in our imagination. In the story that unfolds in every orifice of Tom Sawyer Island, we have found a place held for us in each chapter. For those of us who seek Magic in the mundane…this is our escape to Neverland, our quiet moment of suspension and joy.

The River Queen had a storied history even before she arrived in St. Louis in 1964, including having been featured in several movies, most famously in Gone With The Wind. She was built in 1923 and named The Cape Girardeau, and after several name changes over the years, she was brought to St. Louis as a tourist attraction. It was a glowing success, but one that would not last, as under mysterious circumstances, the River Queen would soon find itself on the bottom of the Mississippi. Press play to hear the whole story. ------ Click on search links to explore episodes with related content: Adam Kloppe, Mississippi River, Business, Disaster, Riverboats, Transportation, ------ Podcast Transcript: I'm Adam Kloppe, public historian with the Missouri Historical Society, and Here's History on eighty-eight one, KDHX. ------ When the steamboat River Queen arrived in St. Louis in June of 1964, her owners, John Groffel and Arthur Krato, had big dreams. Ever since they had first purchased the stern wheel steamer at auction in 1961, they had hoped that the boat would bring them big dollars as a nostalgic tourist attraction. But in just three short years, those dreams would end up at the bottom of the river. ------ But before we get to the sinking, a little history. The River Queen was built in 1923, but when she was constructed she had a different name—the Cape Girardeau, and she operated mostly carrying passengers and freight on the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers. Then, in 1935, she was sold, and got a different name—the Gordon C. Greene and she became a tourist boat—and movie star, appearing in three films, most notably, 1939's Gone With the Wind. ------ But by 1951, the Gordon C. Greene was sold again, and over the next decade she'd undergo several name changes. In 1961, now going by the name the River Queen, the steamer was sold to John Groffel and Arthur Krato, who had plans to fix her up and turn her into a nostalgia-themed restaurant, museum, and gift shop. At first, they moored the River Queen in Hannibal, hoping to draw tourist crowds. ------ They found early success, but they also knew an even bigger tourist market was just 100 miles downriver. So, in June of 1964, they had the River Queen towed to St. Louis. They moored her near the Eads Bridge, and advertisements called out to tourists by promising that the River Queen would give them a nostalgic taste of nineteenth century steamboat life. Tourists could get lunch or dinner in her 185-seat dining room, and her kitchen offered everything from shrimp to catfish to steak. ------- For the next few years, everything seemed to be going well. The River Queen was bringing in money and the restaurant was well-regarded. But disaster struck in the early morning hours of December 2, 1967. That morning, the restaurant manager noticed the boat listing in the water. Groffel and Krato arrived shortly thereafter and could only watch as the waters rose over the second deck. The River Queen was sunk. To this day, no one knows why. The ship was scrapped, but parts of her steel hull can still be seen on the riverfront when the water is low. Instead of nostalgia for the past, her rusted hull offers us a reminder of how dangerous and powerful the river remains. ------ Here's History is a joint production of KDHX and the Missouri Historical Society.

Cousin Sal and the Degenerate Trifecta are back to preview the Week 11 NFL Thursday Night game, as it's a matchup between the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons. The Patriots are favored on the road and the crew gives out their best bets for the game, player props, and the first touchdown scorer. Next, they hop on the Riverboat Casino to answer the question: What is the most recognizable non-jersey number in sports? Finally, the show wraps up with another fan email that of course, is directed to Harry.
There was a time when, if a steamboat sank or exploded, as they often did on the Mississippi, nothing could be done to recover the wreckage. But in 1842, an industrious man named James Eads found a way to change all of that and to build his fortune in the process by inventing a diving bell. Just press play to hear the whole story. ------ Click on search links to explore episodes with related content: Andrew Wanko, Mississippi River, Riverboats, Engineering, People Of Note, Transportation, Fire, Disaster, Business, Transportation, ------ Podcast Transcript: I'm Andrew Wanko, Public Historian of the Missouri History Museum, and Here's History on 88-one, KDHX. ------ While we usually envision Mississippi River steamboats as graceful things floating lazily down the river, they actually often had pretty tough and short lives. They regularly exploded, caught fire, or smashed into submerged trees. When they sank, they took fortunes of valuable cargo with them. In 1842, twenty-two-year-old James Eads would invent a way to cash in on the Mississippi's buried treasure.------ Eads designed a special boat equipped with hoists and a diving bell that would let him scour the river bottom looking for steamboat wrecks. It seemed unlikely that he would find an investor for his radical invention, but to his surprise, St. Louis shipbuilders Calvin Case and William Nelson were impressed enough to take the risk. But the hard part – finding wrecked steamboats on the river bottom - had just begun. ------ The boat's diving bell was made from a tar-coated whiskey barrel with one end removed, and if small, dark spaces make you uncomfortable, you wouldn't have enjoyed being in it. Eads sat inside as dangling lead weights pulled the bell down to the riverbed, and with only a thin air-supply hose to keep him alive, he shuffled across the river bottom's unstable sand. When he found a piece of steamboat wreckage, he tied a chain around it so it could be cranked up to the surface and explored. ------ Eads personally made more than 500 diving bell trips into the Mississippi's muddy darkness, since few others were willing to attempt the dangerous but rewarding work. He hunted known wreck sites with an intense passion, searching at sometimes unbelievable lengths. For instance, he spent nearly 300 hours inside the diving bell while searching for wreck of the steamer Neptune. ------ The 1849 St. Louis fire, which sank twenty-three steamboats just off the levee, provided Eads with a grand finale of salvage work. By 1853 he retired from river diving a wealthy man. Even though his salvaging days were over, Eads was not done with the Mississippi River. Twenty years later, he would oversee construction of the first bridge across it at St. Louis. ------ Here's history is a joint production of the Missouri History Museum and KDHX.

While playing Calico, Riverboat, Impact, and Alien, we discover that courting cats to take naps on lovely quilts is far more anxiety inducing than, managing a farm on the Mississippi, wrestling a Xenomorph on a derelict spacecraft, and creating the entire cosmos. We then theorize that the cat on the cover of Calico is, in fact, the untold fate of Jonesy, the Nostromo's ship cat. Finally, in Off Brand we discuss how we feel some games “respect” the player through design decisions, and I rant about my love-hate relationship with Returnal, while coming to terms with the fact I'll never “get gud.”Cover: Our ship cat, Freyja, doing her best Xenomorph impression.
