What is Real?

By Jennifer Poenix

Today is day 3 of the "Northern Observer" fundraiser on KAXE. Thank you to everyone who has pledged!

There's been a lot of stories floating around about KAXE's volunteers and staff both on the air and here. Maybe some of them are real, maybe some of them are not. (Just so you know, I did not throw away any Beatles records.)

Other KAXE fundraisers have included things that people have wondered about. Did Heidi really walk across the Mississippi River on a tightrope? Did Dan and Maggie really visit Pluto two years ago? Did Rev Dave and Doug MacRostie really shoot my son out of a cannon?

These things are fun to imagine, but when you get down to it, KAXE is as real as it gets. When you listen to KAXE, you know that there are real people behind it. Real people who put a lot of thought into the music you hear. Real people who cheer everytime someone makes a pledge to support this radio station. Real people who work hard to ensure you are getting authentic local radio every day of the year.

If you believe in real radio, do your part to support it, and become a member of KAXE. You can pledge online or call (218) 326-1234 or 800-662-5799.

Thank you!
