Monday Morning on KAXE: Hockey, Heart-Throbs and Community Banking (Tornado Bob Too!)

by Scott Hall

The President of Grand Rapids State Bank, Noah Wilcox, returns to the Morning Show to update the ever changing banking business here in northern MN and beyond. He'll be joined by Tom Welle, President of the First National Bank of Bemidji. Tom and Noah are also active in state and national banking associations looking out for the interests of smaller, solvent community bankers (7:20)

Bemidji State Men's Hockey Coach and Greenway High School Alum, Tom Serratorre, talks with Dodger, Jack Lavaliere and me about the Beavers trip to the Frozen Four next week in Washington, DC. Nobody gave Bemidji State much of a chance. Teams from the WCHA, CCHA, and Hockey East have dominated Division One hockey.Bemidji State's great showing solidifies their bid to join the WCHA. Former Greenway and Dartmouth College hockey standout, Kent Nyberg, pointed out how close we came to a Highway 2 Frozen Four. UMD and North Dakota lost tough regional games by one goal. Had they won, three of the Frozen Four teams would have had Highway 2 addresses. The Beavers play Miami of Ohio Thursday night 5:30 or 8 o'clock (ET). The championship game is Saturday night, 7 PM (ET). Boston University plays Vermont in the other semi-final. THE BEAVERS WILL PREVAIL!!! (I hope) 7:40

We have our beautiful, talented, and beloved Mom Of Pop Culture, Julie Crabb, on Friday mornings. Now our Professor of Pop Culture, Jack Nachbar, joins us one Monday each month to review and preview a classic movie. The second Wednesday of each month, the Edge Theater in Bigfork shows a great movie from long ago. Next Wednesday night it "You Can't Take It With You", a Frank Capra movie starring Jimmy Stewart, Jean Arthur, and Lionel Barrymore. The movie got 7 Academy Award nominations and won two: Best Director and Best Picture. Jean Arthur is one of my original heart-throbs - tough and tender, and a lot more than a pretty face, a star not a starlet. Barbara Stanwyck was another...(sigh) Jack Nachbar taught film at Bowling Green and will also speak before, during and after the movie Wednesday night. (8:10)

TORNADO BOB, a star in his own right, has the weather and the why every Monday at 8:40
