Mingering Mike

Friday, May 25, 2007

By day, Dori Hadar works as a criminal investigator. But he moonlights as a DJ and prowls for interesting LPs. Sifting through crates of old soul and funk, he found a box of records that mystified him. The sleeves were painted by hand – and the “records” inside were made of cardboard. Hadar put his detective skills to work to find the man who called himself Mingering Mike. Produced by Derek John.

Guests:

Dori Hadar and Mingering Mike

Here is the item I posted on Facebook today, Sunday, after hearing the angelic (!) Mingering Mike story, along with the link to the broadcast recording, of course:

"LISTEN, Y’all! Mingering Mike: THE greatest recording artist ever; who never was…sort of…ALMOST!!!
If you only do one thing to begin the week, make it a listen of this entirely uplifting 9-minute piece I happened to catch on NPR’s Studio360.org. As cynical as I am; as downtrodden by the garbage heap trolled by corrupt haulers that NYC has become -- even I had my faith restored this morning; no less than in the indomitable life that resides in the human soul."

I'm trying to get in touch with Dori Hadar regarding a show of Mingering Mike's at my gallery in Durham, NC. Thanks.
