There is always a lot going on at KAXE, from serious stuff like Bio-fuels at Ainsworth site in Cook to a 2 hour discussion about Chickens within city limits (which is more serious than you might expect). Below you can hear further arguements from Aaron Brown that 'chicken' is one of the funniest words in the English language and Steve Downing with his thoughts on big chicken-farms. It's also been the ricing season in Northern Minnesota and Matt Miltich shares a story about going ricing for...ducks. And we have unreleased recordings of 70's Bemidji rockers Podipto shared by Josh Collins, the son of Podipto founder John Collins. We add new pieces regularly to our Audio Highlights at KAXE.org.
