When the economy "tanked" in 2008, Bill Smith decided to drop his work as an engineer and become a full-time soap-maker. He got his introduction to making soap at a workshop at Itasca State Park 10 years earlier, and had been experimenting to find the best formula ever since. Now he makes over 50 kinds of soap in his kitchen, and keeps the inventory in his basement. His business is called AM Soap Company.

The first Friday of every month is special at Northern Community Radio.   We've come to know it as the First Friday Cavalcade of arts.  Checking in with folks from around the listening area, we do our best to let our listeners know about first Friday arts happenings near them and give an idea of what kinds of arts events are happening throughout the month.  Northern Minnesota's art scene is vibrant and flourishing.

Every Tuesday we hear from students and listeners as they send in their weekly Phenology observations.  This week, observations include rising temperatures, lots of snow to shovel, wolves and pussy willows popping!

Brainerd and Bemidji, MN both have some great opportunities in February for people to experience art, meet other creative folks and express themselves.  Area Voices producer Katie Carter broke it down for us on the morning show.   She told us about the February shows at the Crossing Arts Alliance in Brainerd, what's happening at the Watermark Art Center, then she tipped us off to some of the exhibits on the First Friday Art Walk in Bemidji.  Click on the link for the full report! 

   Tons of arts events happening tonight for First Friday and throughout October all across the listening region.  We got the scoop from Grand Rapids, Ely and Bemidji on the morning show this morning.
