It’s coming! The spring edition of my Great Northern Radio Show hits the stage of the Bagley High School auditorium and airwaves of Northern Community Radio this upcoming Saturday, March 9. The show airs from 5-7 p.m. and free tickets are still available by calling KAXE at 800-662-5799. Find out more about the show and make plans to join us in Bagley, in your car, in your living room or through an app on your phone that puts the FFFFFFFMMMMMM! in FM radio.
I’ve been showcasing some of the talent we have lined up for the show this week. Next up, “The Bemidji Kid” Sonny Johnson, who made his radio debut on our show last year at show at the Chief Theater and has been building a solid musical reputation for himself since. Last summer, Sonny walked into the Reif Center Talent Show in Grand Rapids and took the top prize with this song, which he wrote for our June show in Brainerd:
As part of that contest, Sonny got to open for Roy Clark at the Reif later last year.
