Big news!

My hometown is celebrating it's sesquitennial in July and one of the events is having the NPR Morning Show broadcast LIVE from Jackson! Pretty impressive! Here's the blip from the MPR site...

When the weather is warm, The Morning Show will use any excuse to set up some food booths and have a craft show and this summer their eyes are set on Jackson, Minnesota. The Morning Show hosts Dale Connelly and Jim Ed Poole will travel to this town of barely 3500 for a live broadcast from its sesquicentennial celebration Friday, July 14 at the Historic State Theater. The gang will be joined by South Dakota prairie girl Rachel Ries; The Pines, formerly from Iowa; Rich Rue and Nikki Matteson, a blues duo from Jackson County; and High Bongo. Enjoy live music and summer fun in a small prairie town with a rich history.
