Did you know that on April 3, 1973, Motorola exec Martin Cooper introduced the first cell? It was bigger than his head and weighed about 5 lbs, but thanks to Marty it’s easy today to call KFAI and make a pledge! Liberty Finch is standing by at 612-375-9030 to take your call, while DJ Izzy mans the wheels of steel. Thanks to all who’ve pledged and to rap partners Scott G. Hanson and Larry Englund for their support. Giving is fun!

Five stories from the 10,000 Voices series:

1. HCMC’s Medical History Center
Produced by Britt Aamodt
The basement of Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC) houses the Hennepin Medical History Center—a tiny, two-gallery museum filled to the rafters with old nurses uniforms, medical technology and history dating back to the 1800s. KFAI producer Britt Aamodt tours the collection.

2. The lure of Paul Bunyan
Produced by Susan Gray
The tale of Paul Bunyan and friends has captivated Minnesotans for more than 100 years. Statues of the lumberjack pepper the state, in towns of Ackley, Brainerd, Bloomington and Jenkins. To understand the lure of Paul, KFAI producer Susan Gray spoke to Bemdji residents, which is home of the country’s first roadside statue of Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox.

3. Creative Ladies are Powerful
Produced by Robert W. Morgan
Success in any field is built on support, and for the women behind CLAP—Creative Ladies Are Powerful—there is definitely strength in numbers. This female art collective welcomes all creative types to contribute to its ‘zine, which features advice, interviews, recipes, poetry, creative non-fiction, art and more. Produced for KFAI by Robert W. Morgan. For more information visit creativeladiesarepowerful.blogspot.com.

4. Twin Cities Youth Media Network
Produced by Michelle Alimoradi
Many local media organizations work with young people, and as a result, the Twin Cities has become a bastion of youth-driven community media and civic engagement. KFAI producer Michelle Alimoradi has more.

5. Musician Tim O’Keefe
Produced by Daniel Zamzow
Tim O’Keefe has been playing music in Duluth and the Twin Cities since the 1970s. What began as a musical journey on harmonica has led to vast knowledge of hand-drumming styles originating in the Middle East, Africa and South America. O’Keefe talks to KFAI producer Daniel Zamzow about a lifetime of diverse projects.

Week two of our Spring Pledge Drive.
I want to sincerely thank all of those persons who pledged on this program and to all who generously help support KFAI.
