Great Northern Radio Show rebroadcast will be Sunday at 11a

Last Saturday we broadcast a new episode of the Great Northern Radio Show from the Boardman Auditorium at Eveleth-Gilbert High School in Eveleth, Minnesota. It was two hours of laughs, tears and some of the best music we’ve ever featured. I’m proud of all our shows, but I’m particularly proud of how the program continues to grow every time we go to air.

If you missed the show you can hear the rebroadcast this Sunday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on 91.7 KAXE-Grand Rapids/90.5 KBXE-Bemidji/89.9 Brainerd/live streaming on After that, the show will be available in podcast form at our website.

Our next show will be Saturday, Dec. 15, live from the Edge Center for the Performing Arts in Bigfork, Minnesota. We’re current amassing talent for that show, which will celebrate life in the winter woods just in time for the holidays.

  1. Just my luck: the GF and I would’ve been in the crowd shot from the “Lost in Yonkers” promo, but we’re obstructed by the microphone!

    [You probably know this, Aaron, but Gus Hall spent his final years in Yonkers.]

    Fantastic show. I’m really glad we went.

  2. I did know that at one time, but had FORGOTTEN. Accidental artist continuity!

    Thanks for coming out to the show. So nice to know that those who while away their time on this silly blog also support the show. It means a lot. Thanks! Did I meet you? Maybe I already know you. Spooky. 🙂
