Young performers watch American Idol and wish they could be the one singing for the judges. That dream could happen for a northlander. WDIO has your chance to tryout for Northland Idol, and one person has a chance to move on with a golden ticket to tryout for the celebrity judges. You could be on tv!!!
Daryl from Animal Allies talked about Pip this morning. Pip is only 3, but has energy and loves to check out the scenery. Daryl says somewhere with windows would be perfect because Pip loves sitting by the windows.
After looking over the teams this year and seeing all the predictions on sports radio and tv. I have decided that I know who will be in the Super Bowl, and dare I say, I know who will win it all too. It's so obvious, I don't know why all these people haven't seen it by now.
Again today we have some lake wind. After some rescues and deaths, due to high winds and choppy lake conditions, the Duluth Fire Department issued a Red Flag warning for swimming. Flag locations are listed within. This warning is effective immediately for today August 14th.
Potholes are at an all time high, Duluth is getting behind in repairing roads. I see posts all the time about people complaining about the roads, and they need to be fixed. Mayor Larson has said she would raise sales taxes, but some people are coming forward saying they don't want to pay. What do we do? We have an idea.
People who need help are getting it with the Shoot For Fun. It does not help to get better crutches or hire more people to care for them. It's raising money to raise awareness and help give adults with disabilities a chance to show they have abilities. Michael Jackson is a young man in a wheel chair, without courage center or Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute he wouldn't have the opportunities to show that.
We see all sorts of celebrations in the end zone, some NFL players have fans that wait to see what they are going to do next. Some of the players get really creative and some just spike the ball. This year the officials have to call a foul if a team spends too much time in the end zone.
The Minnesota Vikings will be holding their practices at a new location next year, but this year many people made it to the old practice area in Mankato MN. In a show featured during overnights on KOOL 101.7, Leif Bakken and Neil Roberts talk about 52 years in Mankato and the changes in Eagen. Some things to expect for the new Vikings for this year.
Every year before the NFL pre-season gets in full gear, the KOOL Schwammee makes his predictions for the coming year. We record them and at the end of the year we review them. Here are his guesses for all the divisions and the Super Bowl.
Shari and I set out to find out what we could find in the radio station. So we walked around with the K2 meter to see if we could get any readings. We also shared it on facebook live. Here's what we found.
This year KOOL 101.7 is proud to be your Bayfront Blues Festival radio station. When you are planning ahead to bring things you will need to the legendary music fest, here's a list of things that are allowed, and things that aren't. Those of you that go every year, you know some of this, even if you do, it's good to brush up.
We have one of the biggest and best blues festivals right here in Duluth, and not only is this a special year, but there are some great things that make it something you should plan to attend every year. Even the artists want to play here and be a part of the action. Why not, it's one of the most beautiful venues.
