New Music

Monday - Thursday 2pm-4pm & 10pm-mid

New Music specializes in recordings released within the previous three months, bringing listeners "the best of the new" as chosen by Northern Community Radio's music director. Rock, folk, blues, jazz and world beat are all represented in the mix.

I had lots of fun putting together this week's Centerstage Minnesota show. You can hear a cut from the new album by Hippo Campus, and go back in time with Jonathan Rundman's cover of Come Sail Away. Centerstage Minnesota features Minnesota artists in an eclectic mix of folk, rock, blues, jazz, and world music. Tune in every week from 2-4 to hear the awesome talents of local musicians.

Live Music

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.

The latest installment of Centerstage Minnesota features host Brett Carter talking with Rachael Kilgour, a Minneapolis-based musician originally from Duluth whose new album Rabbit in the Road releases on March 3rd. The album features a strong deliberation on the grief, rebuilding, and resiliency that comes from struggling through her divorce. Ultimately, the message is one of forgiveness and moving forward, but there's some real pain along the way.

Milt Lee talks with Sam Miltich about his life as a musician.  Growing up surrounded by a large musical  family in northern Minnesota, taking his talents around the world and landing back to his roots playing jazz throughout the Upper Midwest.
