Kevin Kling's left arm is two–thirds shorter than his right arm. Five years ago, he lost the use of his right arm in a motorcycle accident. He's hopped freight trains, gotten hit by lightning, and performed his plays all over the world. Humorist and playwright Kevin Kling brought his accordionist, Simone Perrin, to our studios in spring 2009. Today we rebroadcast a great hour of music and storytelling.


Kevin Kling is a Minnesota born and bred playwright and storyteller who performs around the world. His autobiographical stories talk about hopping freight trains, performing banned plays in Czechoslovakia and getting hit by lightning. He has written numerous plays, including "21A" and "Lloyd's Prayer," and has received grants and fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the McKnight Foundation and the Busch Foundation, among others. His most recent book is "The Dog Says How."

Simone Perrin is an accordionista. She's also an artist, composer and singer. She has appeared on "A Prairie Home Companion" and performs with Kevin Kling in many of his plays. She premiered two shows at the 2006 Minnesota Fringe Festival, her one–woman show, "Tall Tale of a Broken Heart," and "In Hopes of Claudia" with Kevin Kling.
