Youth in Radio Podcast...Michael Fitch

May 2, 2019

Michael Fitch of Grand Rapids produced the first Youth in Radio Podcast for KAXE/KBXE which will be aired Thursday mornings around 8:10 during the Morning Show. Fitch explores the relationship between music and arts education in young children. Hear the whole conversation below. 

The Youth in Radio Podcast is also available on kaxe.org and through iTunes. If you know someone who might want to make a podcast, send an email to comments@kaxe.org.

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!

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.
