young farmers on the radio
we've mentioned the greenhorns radio show before, broadcasting weekly on Heritage Radio. It's quite informative and entertaining - interviews with young farmers, events, etc. We recently heard from another radio-saavy greenhorn out in South Dakota, producing the "Rock Garden Tour" - farming/gardening/rock and roll in collaboration with South Dakota Public Broadcasting. We love it, and think you will two. you can subscribe to podcasts and check out their blog.
Here's what they're about:
Flowerman and Oil Can produce the Rock Garden Tour live on 89.1 KAUR in Sioux Falls, SD. If you live in extreme South East South Dakota you can listen on Thursday nights from 8-10pm. Or you can listen to weekly podcasts right here.
Middle-American folk icons with two things on our minds: gardening and rock and roll. That's it. If you want to shoot the breeze on the socio-economic implications of People Magazine, then this show may not be your shoe. Sometimes we discuss the Coach's fall from the top of the barn (twice), or talk about Coach's experiment of using marigolds around the pumpkins as a pest deterrent, or the origins of the turnip-o-lantern, the trouble with squirrels in the garden, winterizing the lawn, pet wiener dogs named Rusty that died after 15 pretty good years - more or less, garden gnome subculture, if you can over-water a lilly pad, mojo, pest-control, mountain goats, Montrose's Labor Day softball tourney, and per usual, the rural American revolution.
Listen to the Rock Garden Tour and keep it rural.
