In The Moment ... March 15, 2017 Show 050 Hour 2

The Dakota Political Junkies are a panel of some of  the top political journalists in the state. Today Denise Ross and Jon Hunter join us to explore the recently announced candidacy of current SD Secretary of State Shantel Krebs (she's running against Dusty Johnson for U.S. Representative Krist Noem's seat in the House). We'll also dig in to how to prevent scandals in state government and whether or not new legislation truly addresses the will of the voters.

MJ McMillan is a South Dakota rancher and poet. He joins Dakota Midday during National Poetry Month to talk about poetry that celebrates day-to-day life, for day-to-day people. McMillan and host Lori Walsh discuss rhyme, ranching, and rambling, and McMillan recites a signature poem from his latest collection.

McMillan is also joined by Deb Lux, with the Rapid City Arts Council, who talks about the Word 4 Word event at the Dahl in Rapid City.

On the first Friday of every month in Rapid City, novice musicians with the itch to perform can find audiences and mentoring at open mic night at the Dahl Arts Center. The Emerging Artists program started in January 2012 has launched the early careers of some local musicians. Open mic coordinator Deb Lux tells SDPB’s Victoria Wicks that the first step is to just get over fears and do it.
Emerging Artist concerts are held at the Dahl every Friday evening from 5 to 7 p.m., with open mic on the first Friday of every month. Admission is free, and audiences are welcome.
