Great Northern Radio Show featured in today’s DNT

Christa Lawler of the Duluth News Tribune wrote a story in today’s Duluth News Tribune about the Great Northern Radio Show, set to debut Saturday, Oct. 15 on the Hibbing Community College theater stage.

Take a right at Lake Wobegon and head north to the Iron Range — to a place where things are just a little less folksy than the world portrayed by Garrison Keillor.

“It’s like Lake Wobegon with a lot more alcohol and social strife,” Brown said. “The Range is just a little more confrontational and edgy as a people. We’re trying to have some fun with some of the Range traditions and ethnicities.”

I guess I should have better anticipated the Prairie Home comparisons. I hope people take that  comment in the spirit intended. The show itself will feature much more gospel music and fishing songs than it will highlight our strife. On the Range strife is implied, not stated. 

The Great Northern Radio Show will air 5-7 p.m. on Oct. 15. Admission to the HCC Theater is free, but we ask that people arrive before 4:30 p.m. for seating. The program will be broadcast live on 91.7 KAXE with live streaming on Rebroadcasts and a podcast will follow.


  1. Garrison Keillor is very annoying, you aren’t. You’re already ahead of the game.

  2. Belated thanks for the comment here, DG. Not annoying is a good start. 🙂
