From Austin, Texas, folk duo Dawn & Hawkes came through the KAXE studio last week while in Northern Minnesota.

Listen below to hear a couple songs from their beautiful new album, The Other Side, how they write together as a married couple, trying to make the world a better place through music, and perhaps most shockingly, they still listen to an ipod!

Each week, our resident Phenologist John Latimer compiles his report of the subtle and not so subtle phenological changes he's noticed in the past week and he shares those observations with our listeners. This week, John discusses changes in daylight,  which trees are where in terms of their peak color, the bumper plum crop, rice worms, dragonflies, butterflies and more.

The school year is underway and that means our weekly phenology talkback segment just got exponentially more fun.  Year-round, we hear from listeners who call or email their observations of the natural world to us and we love hearing from everyone who contributes!  However, when school is underway we have the sweet treat of hearing from classrooms and kids around the listening area as they report what they've been noticing.

Barb Grove is known around the Crosby, MN area as Mama Cuyuna.  Her tenacious work to repurpose Crosby into a recreation destination after mine companies left town decades ago earned her the unique and fitting moniker.  Barb's unwavering dedication along with the help and passion of thousands of other people who understood the value in this endeavor has paid off. Today, Crosby is thriving.  New stores, restaurants, and outfitters have moved into the area as have people from outside the region - all as a result Crosby becoming a mountain biking destination!
