Great Northern Radio, a variety show including comedy, storytelling and live music broadcasted by 91.7 KAXE, will soon host its first live tour, including a stop in Bemidji.
The program had its premiere live broadcast in Hibbing in October, and the enthusiastic response has sparked the creation of a four-city tour of northern Minnesota beginning in April 2012. Scheduled stops include Bemidji, Brainerd, Eveleth and Bigfork.
The program is actively seeking musicians, performers, and interviews for this new series, with hour one and hour two of the Hibbing show currently on KAXE.org. A podcast station of all the events will be posted soon after the series launch.
The Bemidji stop, the first on the tour, will be April 7 at the Chief Theater.
