Brown on the Air: WHAT’S IN A NAME?

This week the Saturday morning call-in and music program “Between You and Me” lights up the airwaves on 91.7 KAXE with the topic “What’s in a name?” The show features a variety of songs and produced elements, including my essay, but mostly highlights the voices of the people of northern Minnesota calling in to talk frankly about an unusual topic.

My essay joins the show theme of exploring the purpose, origins and feelings we have about names, our own, our children’s, our family’s or any names of note. Did you know that I was almost named Ward George Brown IV? That almost happened. This would have been a different blog, believe me.

Tune in from 10 a.m. to noon on 91.7 FM in northern Minnesota or streaming live all over the world at My essays and the show itself are archived and syndicated through PRX.
