Ways to Connect

Did you see familiar faces performing on Conan O'Brien last night?? Dave Simonett & his Dead Man Winter crew impressed the host (and pretty sure Conan would have liked to walk away with Erik Koskinen's guitar...) and surely came away with more fans.

Duluth musician, Teague Alexy (of Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank) is stopping by New Music today to debut a new song from the Circuit Sessions EP on KAXE/KBXE! Look for his new EP to be released 4/4/17.

Teague will be playing a live version of this brand new song (below) during the 2pm hour today. Tune in!

Record Store Day

Mar 24, 2017

Record Store Day is honored around the world (except on Antarctica),  celebrating and spreading the word about the unique culture surrounding independently owned record stores. Three years ago, we wanted to get involved, but unfortunately don't have any record stores to partner with in our listening area. So we created our own pop up record store, open only on Record Store Day, selling used vinyl.

I was lucky enough to have some special guests in the studio during New Music this week - Bemidji boys Corey Medina & Brothers along with The Incepticons came by to play some of their brand spanking new songs for us. They were also our guests for the CenterStage Concert Series at The Reif Center on Thursday.

Check out the video they put together!

Live Music

Feb 17, 2017

Our latest CenterStage MN Concert was last night, (featuring a northern Minnesotan for the first time in the series!) with Sam Miltich & Charmin Michelle. I had the opportunity to sit next to a man, probably in his late 80s/early 90s. This dude was feeling the music, being transported in time; I couldn't help but share in his love.
