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.

We talked with Phil Hermel last Monday about his quest to raise money for cancer support in Itasca County.  He aimed high and hoped to raise $15,000.  He knew he would lose some toenails, but he didn't expect to raise  over $34,000 to help families in need. 

Check out his article in Lake Time magazine, and listen to our conversation!
