Centerstage Minnesota features music in all genres from artists from all corners of the state. The most recent show features an interview with Joe Carey, long-time musician, whose smart songwriting and nimble guitar work create a strong mix.

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.

The distance between Funkytown and the Temperance River Blues may not be as far as you think. Tune in to Centerstage Minnesota Friday’s at 2:00 and 10:00 for a journey through a host of Minnesota musical destinations. This week includes a listen to the newest album St.

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!
