Rise up, gather round, rock this place to the ground....
On a special edition of the Northern Alliance Radio Network, Mitch Berg and I will be broadcasting LIVE from the Minnesota State Fair. We will be on the air from 5:00 pm until 7:00 Central Time, featuring some prominent guests.
Right out of the chute at 5:06, Congressman John Kline (who represents Minnesota CD 2) will join the program for two segments. In the midst of his fifth term in the US House, the former Marine Corps colonel will discuss many of the pressing economic issues facing our nation and what lies ahead in the 2012 election season.
In the 6:00 hour, we will be joined by 18-year old Mary Zahurones, who was recently named the 58th Princess Kay of the Milky Way. No word on whether or not the butter sculpture will be accompanying her.
If you happen to be out at the fair this evening, we have a new location! We're located on Machinery Hill, which is at the north end of the fairgrounds, specifically near the corner of Underwood Street & Murphy Avenue (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.
