Two Harbors Community Radio will be hosting its 3rd annual Cabin Fever Reliever music and entertainment extravaganza at the Two Harbors High School Auditorium on Sunday, March 5 at 3:00 p.m. Expanding to a larger place due to high demand, this year’s Cabin Fever Reliever will showcase a wide variety of artists and styles, all homegrown, all with unique energies. The line-up includes bands like the Northwoods Band and THUG as well as many high school performers like Erika Pelach with her guitar, singer-songwriters like Hannah Rey, oral storytellers like Shane Dickey, and folk musicians like Arna Rennan. Gail Francis will perform a cappella, Nancy McGibbon will be on the ukulele, and Meghan Cavallin will be there with her guitar. The intermission will be punctuated with “Just for Kix” middle school dance teams from Two Harbors. This is a something-for-everyone event.
The Cedar Coffee Company will be selling gourmet coffee and treats before the show and at intermission, and free snacks and drinks are available as well.
Tickets will be on sale after Feb. 6 at KTWH Mon-Fri. 1-5 pm (Harbors Landing Building, corner of 7thAve. and 7th St. in Two Harbors) or at the Cedar Coffee Company (1130 11th St., just north of Shopko): $10 adults ($8 in advance), $5 seniors, $3 kids under 5, $25 for a family.

Program Updates for February 2017

i Dec 13th No Comments by

We are happy to introduce two new local music shows in our Friday late afternoon line up. They are CoverAlls with Kim Leon at 5:00pm Fridays – featuring all covers, by famous and lesser-known artists across a wide range of genres from rock and folk to jazz and polka and more;

and Special Topics in Indie and New Wave: Appreciate the depth of indie/college/new wave music (1979-95) as we explore it through a different topic each week, with Katie Williams. Katie’s show airs from 6:05 to 7pm, leading into Dave’s Beat Farm. We are also introducing weekend community events at 6pm on Fridays now.
Peter Bochan’s All Mixed Upan eclectic collage of great music and current-events sound bites, which had aired from 5-7pm on Fridays can still be heard – now from 9-11pm Fridays. 

 

A recent addition is the occasional DJ for a Day, on 2nd and 5th Wednesdays from 7-8:00pm, repeated at 10:00am on Fridays. So far we have had three guest hosts who brought and/or chose their own music, introducing it and playing it with assistance from one of our trained hosts. Two of these hosts have gone on to produce their own shows (Scott Golden – on the program grid as of December – and Kim Leon – whose new show CoverAlls we introduced above), but you may also do it as just a one-time thing. Call 595-6195 to get in line for your turn at the mic. No training is necessary for this gig, a good way to test your enthusiasm for doing your own show eventually.

Local programming is our priority, so there IS still room in our schedule for new local programs – we will happily displace outside programs for good local programming.

If you miss something we changed (mostly outside programs that have been canceled, reruns of them eliminated or the time changed), let us know, we can try to find a slot for anything we should be keeping, but we need to hear from you.

And click below for a one-line description of our local programs and many outside programs. Most of our outside music programs have self-explanatory names, so to keep it to one page, we include mainly descriptions of non-music outside programs.
