By now, it’s hard to believe that there are people who haven’t seen the 1983 Christmas comedy, “A Christmas Story.” I mean, it’s nearly impossible not to catch a glimpse of the film when flipping through channels on Christmas day since TBS began its 24-hour “A Christmas Story” marathon.
Musical Mondays pairs these two by offering audiences a taste of local performers, and offering local performers a space to explore their range of talent. So, I sat down with the people who are working to make everyone’s Monday a bit more musical, Max Wojtanowicz and Sheena Janson.

In addition to performing his catchy hit “Ice Ice Baby”, he’s acting and hosting TV shows. As he put it, he’s “getting in where he fits in.”
Very rarely does anyone look forward to a Monday. The weekend is over, a full week of work lies ahead and there are five full days until Friday rolls around. Mondays, for many, are a drag.

For many people, fall signifies the start of football season. This year, fans of the pigskin in Minnesota have not only the team to be excited about (or disappointed by), but a new stadium as well.
