We had the first concert Thursday night for the 2017 portion of our CenterStage MN Concert Series with The Reif Center. The Honeydogs were here, and man, they were great. Have you seen them? I knew the band was going to be fun when I walked backstage into a flying Millennium Falcon with the guitar player doing high kicks to try and knock it down. They brought that kind of energy and level of fun onto the stage throughout the performance.

    Each week we hear from listeners around the region as they connect with us to share their observations, questions and comments about what they are noticing out in the natural world.  It was an interesting week!  We learned about a young girl who tried to capture a mouse in her bedroom only to discover it was a vole, a  rare siting of a curved billed thrasher which is a bird normally residing in the southwest United States,  chipmunks filling their cheeks, and a whole bunch of other things going on outside!  Check out the audio files to learn more.

John Latimer, our resident phenologist, is passionate about nature.   He's been documenting the subtle biological events of nature as they relate to climate for more than 30 years.  Click on the link to hear his full phenology report for this week!   Pussy willows, barred owls eating voles, and scat trails are just a few of the highlights of this full report!

Part 2 of our Dig Deep conversation this week gets into how the presidential campaigns of 2016 spoke to people in rural areas and also asks the question "does anybody outside of here really care?" 

There are over 3,000 archaeological sites in northern Minnesota’s Chippewa National Forest, covering a range of time from just after the Ice Age (10,000 years ago) to the early 20th century. The sites include early logging camp sites, fur trade sites, recreational sites, and sites reflecting Ojibwe and Dakota heritage.

Our collaboration with The Reif Center continues with a concert this month featuring longtime indie rock band in MN, The Honeydogs, January 19th, 7:30pm.

Sam Miltich stopped by the KAXE studios in Grand Rapids, MN Monday morning to discuss his upcoming concerts.  Proceeds from this Friday's concert at MacRostie Art Center will be donated to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SLPC).  Sam tells Heidi why SLPC's mission of fighting hate and bigotry is important to him.   The also discuss the powerful impact the arts have on society.  

Hang on 'til the end of the interview for a sample of Sam's music!

As the Women's March on Washington has swelled in support, attracting attention and supporters in the lead-up to Saturday's demonstrations, its name has become something of a misnomer.

Sister marches have been organized in all 50 states, and in countries around the world. They have been organized to express solidarity with the aims of the original march: opposition to President Trump's agenda, and support of women's rights and human rights in general.

The National Mall has flooded with pink, as demonstrators descend on the nation's capital Saturday for the Women's March on Washington. Just one day after President Trump's inauguration, marchers from across the country have gathered in the city to protest his agenda and support for women's rights.

A three-hour rally is opening the event. The march proper is planned for the mid-afternoon, with a path that's set to extend from a starting position near the U.S. Capitol to its endpoint near the Washington Monument.
