Bemidji

The band Dancing Light stopped by the KBXE studio in Bemidji recently to sing a couple songs and tell a few stories. Their long career locally means there was lots to talk about. It was fun to have Greg, Kiki, and Sabbastian on the air live. Hear the whole conversation by clicking below.

Mur Gilman is passionate about living an active life and encouraging others to do so, too.  She's helped organize Bemidji's Loop the Lake Festival since its inception more than five years ago.  This Saturday, Loop the Lake organizers expect around 1,000 bicyclists to cruise the 17 miles around Lake Bemidji while enjoying entertainment and snacks along the way.  Mur stopped by the morning show to tell us more about the event.

ERA MN

This morning we took a tour of northern MN in celebration of National Travel and Tourism Week.  Tourism is a $15 billion dollar industry in MN and generates more than 265,000 jobs - making up for 11% of private sector employment.  Today we visited with the fine folks that work in the tourism industry in northern MN.
