With my friend and Northern Alliance Radio Network colleague Mitch Berg out on assignment, I will be broadcasting in his stead LIVE from the Minnesota State Fair this afternoon. The 2-hour extravaganza kicks off at 1:00 PM.
An annual NARN tradition will take place right at 1:00, as we'll receive a visit from Princess Kay of the Milky Way. This year's winner, Haley Hinrichs, is the 63rd Princess Kay.
At 1:30, Twila Brase, who is President of the Citizens' Council For Health Freedom, will stop by our State Fair broadcast center. Fortuitous timing given that health insurance premiums in MN are projected to increase dramatically in 2017. We'll also discuss other controversial health care related topics.
Finally at 2:00, MN House candidate Nolan West will appear on the broadcast. Nolan is the GOP nominee in House District 37B, which covers the majority of the city of Blaine.
In non-guest segments, I will likely address more of the Colin Kaepernick saga as well as other news from this past week.
If you happen to be out at the fair today, feel free to stop by and say hello. We're located on Machinery Hill, which is at the north end of the fairgrounds, specifically near the corner of Underwood Street & Murphy Avenue (next door to the Home Depot building; see map here).
You can listen live in the Twin Cities at AM 1280 on your radio dial. In and out of the Minneapolis-St Paul area, you can listen to the program on the Internet by clicking this link, or check us out via iheart radio.
