Brown on the Air: BOWLS

My weekly Saturday morning contribution for the 91.7 KAXE program “Between You and Me” deals with the show’s topic of bowls. That’s right. That’s really going to happen. You see, the Itasca Empty Bowls fundraiser is Saturday and we’re using the opportunity to get people talking about an unusual topic, something this show is probably best known for.

My essay is an ode to a particular bowl from my past, a bowl that was my friend when I went from boy to man, and whose time ended far too soon. If you think I can’t extend that into 500 words with a theme, you’d be wrong, chump. You’d be wrong.

“Between You and Me” airs every Saturday morning from 10 to noon on 91.7 FM in northern Minnesota and streaming live all over the world at Callers discuss the topic, tell stories and, in doing so, share the culture of this region’s unique people and their kindred spirits from all over the world.

The show is syndicated through PRX, so you can hear archives here. If you want to hear the inspired insanity from my essay last week, that’s here.
