music

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!

Dusty Heart

Apr 14, 2017

Our CenterStage Concert series, which started this year along with The Reif Center (in Grand Rapids), is almost wrapping up! April and May are the last two shows of the year, and both are worth your time on the town. Promise.

Did you see familiar faces performing on Conan O'Brien last night?? Dave Simonett & his Dead Man Winter crew impressed the host (and pretty sure Conan would have liked to walk away with Erik Koskinen's guitar...) and surely came away with more fans.

Record Store Day

Mar 24, 2017

Record Store Day is honored around the world (except on Antarctica),  celebrating and spreading the word about the unique culture surrounding independently owned record stores. Three years ago, we wanted to get involved, but unfortunately don't have any record stores to partner with in our listening area. So we created our own pop up record store, open only on Record Store Day, selling used vinyl.

One of the best ways to make a difference at KAXE/KBXE is to learn to be a music programmer for On The River. Share your love of music by signing up for the next On the River volunteer training happening Monday, May 15, 6:00-8:30pm.
