The Tower of Birdtown

When the 1300 seat Terrace Theatre opened in 1951, the spectacular venue was the most up-to-date, luxurious and comfortable theater in America. But the building has been vacant since 1999. The exterior doors and tower glass have been covered with plywood to minimize damage from the elements and vandalism. This is the story of the life and death of one of MN's most iconic theater's, the Terrace Theatre.

Rooted on the Range: Bob Dylan in Minnesota

In 1960 Robert Zimmerman left Minnesota for New York City and changed the landscape of the the musical world forever. Within 2 years he became Bob Dylan, the reluctant voice of his generation and then left just as quickly as he arrived. 14 years after leaving Minnesota he returned with tapes of finished songs that almost became a record. This is the story of Bob Dylan's musical life in MN from birth to age 19 and the legendary re-recording of his acclaimed album "Blood On The Tracks" as told by the musicians who were there.
