Minnesota State Fair season is perhaps the premier event on the Northern Alliance Radio Network calendar as both Mitch Berg and I will broadcast our respective shows from "The Great Minnesota Get-Together." As such, today's edition of The Closer will be live from the Fair starting at 2:00 PM Central Time.
Right at 2:00 I will be joined by MN Republican gubernatorial candidate Jeff Johnson. If you recall, Jeff was the 2014 candidate who fell short in defeating Gov. Mark Dayton in the general election. Anyhow, we'll get an update on how the campaign is progressing and why Jeff believes the result will be different this time around.
Then at 2:30 I plan on utilizing the on-site audience for a fun game called "Real news story or The Onion." Quite simply, I'll read the headline of a news story (and an accompanying paragraph) which the contestant will have to determine if it's real news or a product of the parody news site The Onion.
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.
