LAMF

The Lakes Area Music Festival(LAMF) creates ongoing arts experiences throughout the year for adults and youth in the Brainerd Lakes Area.  Each summer LAMF organizes an extensive series creating accessible chamber music over the course of several weeks.  This summer, 53 unique events are happening over the course of 22 days.  LAMF Executive Director Scott Lykins spoke on the morning show about the line-up.  Orchestra concerts, wine and beer tastings, professional ballet,  and outdoor yoga classes - one of which will be accompanied by Lykins, a professional cellist, another will be accompanied by a string quintet - are just a sampling of the offerings LAMF has created this summer.  LAMF outreach also includes concerts and education at area libraries, jails, childrens centers and a variety of other locations around the Brainerd Lakes Area.  Most events are free to attend with LAMF asking for a donation in lieu of ticket costs.

Finn Jorgenson from Bemidji called in on the way to the strawberry patch to tell John and Heidi about his breakfast of a little garden harvest muffin made with zucchini and carrots and a few other things and a "just right" banana. Finn let them in on his secret beverage choice of black coffee with a double-shot of espresso (Don't tell his mom.). John and Heidi nearly hung up on him when Finn said he didn't like whipped cream, only pausing when he clarified that it could only be home-made whip for him. Hear the whole conversation below.

Each month we pair our liberal commentator Aaron Brown with our conservative commentator Chuck Marohn.  They listen to each other and often agree with each other.   Immigration is being discussed on a national level - and Aaron and Chuck guide us through some of the points each political party believes.
