Wrapping up this run of the Great Northern Radio Show

In honor of our last show, actors on the Great Northern Radio Show dropped their script pages to the stage throughout the show, an homage to old time radio. (PHOTO: Grant Frashier)

Last Saturday I hosted the last edition of my Great Northern Radio Show before putting the show on an indefinite hiatus. I talked about my reasons for doing so in a recent column.

You can hear the show here.

It was a delightful evening of music, comedy and stories about Northern Minnesota. It proved an emotional night, too. It’s hard to say goodbye to a project that changed my life as this show did.
