A Regional Emmy for The Playlist
The PlayList episode, Last Call for the Mitchell Yards, earned a 2015 Midwest Emmy™ for highlighting the spirit and story of an endangered landmark on the Iron Range. The documentary weaves contemporary photos by Dan Turner, Sheila Packa's poetry and original music by Paul Seeba with David Aho's preservation efforts to save the 1906 roundhouse. The unique approach made it an outstanding example of Historic/Cultural/Nostalgic programming in the region. The PlayList crew includes Producer/Editor Karen Sunderman, Director/Photographer Steve Ash, Photographer Lance Haavisto and Executive Producer Juli Kellner.
