Another chance to hear Great Northern Radio Show

The Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank were among the highlights,
performing from their new album “Number One Contender.”

Last Saturday night, my Great Northern Radio Show broadcast live from Bagley High School on Northern Community Radio. The Great Northern will be rebroadcast this Saturday morning from 10 a.m. to noon on 91.7 KAXE (Grand Rapids/Iron Range), 90.5 KBXE (Bagley and Bemidji), 89.9 FM (Brainerd) and 103.9 FM (Ely), and of course on

Despite the bad weather, we had a solid turnout and a great time at the show. It was one of our strongest all-around musical programs and we got some good laughs out of our sketch material. I hope you like it. The podcast and additional rebroadcasts will follow. Tell your local public radio station they should carry the Great Northern Radio Show, which is available on PRX.

The Bemidji Pioneer gave us a lovely front-page review Sunday morning after the show and we got a wonderful review in the Bagley Farmer-Independent this week as well (no web version).

Meantime, tune in Saturday morning from 10 a.m. to noon. You can see more pictures of the show taken by our stage director Shelly Nowak below the jump.

The Saxton family, including dad Robert with Louis, Tommy and Charlotte get ready to perform a sketch about the challenges of taking kids out to tap maple syrup. They were filling in after a guest cancelled and wrote, rehearsed and prepared this funny bit just 90 minutes before the show. Robert was actually on snowshoes in the woods when I called him just before noon.
