Kristi Peterson’s third graders did some creative writing this spring, and we have two students reading their own creations for KTWH. First up is Ashlyn Blankenship, reading The Three Little Chips and the Big Bad Salsa Man.
And next we have Kenzie Sunday, with The Three Little Rattles and the Big Bad Baby. Sounds like we have a theme going here…
KTWH volunteer John Bathke interviews Katya about this year’s Sea Change adventure on Lake Superior. They talked not long before Katya left Knife River with her family and four interns to do climate change education while circumnavigating the lake in their sail boat. (Pictured are Katya and Mark Gordon, in their element)
On May 5, 2015, Big Dave Anderson of Brimson recorded his program demo (The Beat Farm) with guest musician and friend Kelly Lusk at KTWH’s studio – becoming the first person to actually record anything in the new studio – a landmark day for Two Harbors Community Radio!
Arna being coached by our engineer Bruce Holmen.
Get an idea of what to expect from KTWH from Arna’s program demo recorded May 8, 2015:
Tom calls himself our Chief Sawdust Maker, among many other things. Here he reads to us from Politically Correct Bedtime Stories.
The THUGs (Two Harbors Ukulele Group) have become an integral part of the Two Harbors music scene, often gracing our community events with their songs and tunes. Here you can listen to their performance of White Sport Coat at the Heritage Days 2014 stage.
Two Harbors Community Radio captures a sight to behold: Santa on a motorcycle, looking for a new home. Hear the sellers give their pitch – maybe Santa is looking for you! [Update: THCR has learned that Santa has already found a new home, so please don’t call the phone number mentioned]
At Heritage Days 2014, Age-to-age intern Kiersten Haaversen interviewed Two Harbors native and THCR supporter Alice Sande at our tent. With intermittent choruses of cheers and groans coming from the annual lutefisk toss event in the background, Alice captures the spirit of Heritage Days.
The 3rd Annual Grown by our Own local foods event was held on May 20th at the Two Harbors Community Center, and our reporter Dale Peterson was on hand to capture some reactions from attendees and vendors alike.
Sounds of the Season – normally by the end of April we might be hearing more bird songs and other wildlife calls. This year our soundscape consists of running water and wind. Snowmelt – it will take some time to relieve ourselves of the winter’s extra-generous bequest of snow cover.
This file begins with about a minute each of water babbling briskly in an ephemeral stream (one which only flows in the spring with runoff or after major downpours) and the same stream heard from under 16” of persistent snowcover; then a slushy approach down steps to the foot of the lower Gooseberry Falls – the roar of which eventually overwhelms the observers, followed by the roar of the upper Gooseberry Falls (can you hear a difference?); and finally the light whooshing sound of the wind in a lone mature white pine holding forth above the relentless gusts in a mixed forest of younger birch and aspen, still bare of any foliage of course. All recordings made April 26 and 27, 2014 in Lake County, Minnesota.
