Brown on the Air: SURVIVAL!

This Saturday morning’s topic on “Between You and Me,” the KAXE call-in and music program lighting up the northern half of the best state ever, is “survival.” Host and producer Heidi Holtan and others will be asking for stories of survival, thoughts on survival and its many meanings. I’ll chime in with my usual thematic exercise in commentary. Those who’ve read my book “Overburden: Modern Life on the Iron Range” might recognize my approach this week, but I also forged into some new territory.

Also Saturday is the 91.7 KAXE Annual Meeting with a 4 p.m. potluck and evening concert featuring Sam Miltich and his new endeavor the Big Dipper Jazz Band. This is the same band that just headlined Dylan Days in Hibbing last week. I couldn’t catch the Hibbing show (I know, ironic) so I’m looking forward to this one.

KAXE, operated by the independent nonprofit Northern Community Radio, isn’t just some droll little gem in the north woods, it’s the coolest functional grassroots media organization that I’m aware of. If you read this blog and aren’t listening, checking out their great online content or visiting KAXE on Facebook you’re missing out.

Tune into Between You and Me from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday and stop in later for the annual meeting. If you’re not a member that can be rectified quickly.

Also, “Between You and Me” is available for syndication at PRX. You can listen to my essays or the whole show in the archives.
