The Buzz around KAXE 1/29/10

A quick BUZZ from 91.7 KAXE

January 29, 2010

Chili and bread, chili and bread. ‘Tis the season for hearty foods! This morning we had Lori Kangas-Olson from Bridges Kinship Mentoring in the kitchen cooking up her own special brand of chili (including a brief paper towel fire). Bridges is holding their annual Chili Bowl next Saturday February 6th at St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church in Grand Rapids to support their programs for kids in Itasca County. Area Rotary clubs make and serve chili to hundreds of people from venison, white and even pb & j sandwiches for the non-chili folks. Got a great chili recipe to share? Send it to us!

Bread is on our minds in a number of ways; during the chili on the Friday Morning Show fun we asked for someone to bring in some bread to dip in the chili and were surprised to get 3 loaves of bread from Tarry and Mickey P. Thanks you guys, sorry for the blatant begging! We also had a great Irish Soda Bread made by Steve Downing at staff meeting yesterday… just in time for Between You and Me tomorrow, where we’ll talk about bread, bread and MORE bread. We’ll feature a conversation with Kim Ode about her passion for bread and her book “Baking With the St. Paul Bread Club”. Check here for recipes for Irish Soda Bread. And join us tomorrow or send us your recipe for bread.

Weekend event picks from KAXE:

Friday, Saturday and Sunday – The Edge Center for the Arts in Bigfork is presenting a staged reading of “The Laramie Project” – the story of the aftermath of the death of Matthew Shepherd.

Things you may have missed on KAXE this week:

We’ve got lots of audio clips available online at KAXE including a conversation about paying for justice with the Chief Justice of the MN Supreme Court, how to grow peaches in Minnesota on our Local Foods segment with Maggie Montgomery and bestselling author Lisa Genova talks about “Still Alice” – her novel about early-onset Alzheimer’s disease on Realgoodwords.


Check out the latest KAXE video where Doug MacRostie shakes the hand of EVERY volunteer. Really, what could be more exciting and filled with germs?


KAXE volunteer Maddi Frick sums up her experience this January on the KAXE Blog. Thanks Maddi, we wish you didn’t have to go back to St. Olaf yet!
