Ways to Connect

Centerstage Minnesota finds a way to include all the usual musical genres of Northern Community Radio--even world music. Siama Matuzungidi has been heard live in studio and his CD Rivers--from the Congo to the Mississippi gets plenty of airplay on Fridays at 2 and 10. Join us every week for this and more. Here the most recent show by clicking this link - Centerstage Minnesota on PRX.

John and Heidi welcomed Cate Belleveau of Puposky on What's For Breakfast. She'd already polished off last night's leftovers of mushrooms, onions, herbs of Provence, spinach and cayenne pepper in coconut oil and a strawberry, yogurt smoothie, so she had time to talk about yurts, deer steak, and welding. Listen every Friday morning about 7:40 for one of our members as they share their breakfast and words of wisdom.

Some people's work weeks end on Friday, so we celebrate with a CD jam session during Centerstage Minnesota at 2:00 and 10:00.

The most recent Centerstage Minnesota show on KAXE/KBXE put together the music of Humbird, Hippo Campus and bands who's names don't start with H. Listen every Friday at 2:00 and 10:00 for two hours of the talented musicians from all over this great state. Hear the most recent show by clicking here.

Meadow Kouffeld joined John and Heidi to talk breakfast, names, and more on The Friday Morning Show's popular What's For Breakfast segment. Join us every Friday morning when we sit down with one of our members and grill up some tough questions about things like omelets, English Tea, and the like or dislike of names
