Good’n‘Country listeners blew out all the stops during today’s pledge show, exceeding the program’s previous single-broadcast Pledge Drive record with 21 pledges called in and over $1,300 raised for KFAI. Guest hosts Jean Silverberg, Ron Thums and Jackson Buck were thrilled by a surprise visit by host Ken Hippler, who stopped by the studio to thank Good’n‘Country and Fresh Air supporters and assure us all that he would be back in the saddle next week, April 13. Remember that the 2013 Pledge Drive continues through next Friday and listeners can continue to contribute at www.kfai.org. Make sure you indicate your pledge is for Good’n‘Country when you do!
Every weekend during summer, vacationers from all over Minnesota and beyond pack up the family car and head north to Highway 1. The highway cuts a jagged route across the top quarter of the state, from North Dakota in the west, to the rocky shores of Lake Superior in the east, through farmland, reservation, lake and lodge country. Curious about this storied Northlands highway, KAXE producer Britt Aamodt hit the road to explore for herself.
