In The Moment ... April 18,2017 Show 075 Hour 2

Each week on Wednesdays, we invite some of the top political journalists in the state to join us as part of the Dakota Political Junkies. Today we have Seth Tupper from the Rapid City Journal and Jonathan Ellis, from the Argus Leader. We talk about early indicators for the tone of the 2018 race for governor and more.

April is National Poetry Month. Today we celebrate with a few of the Dakota Women Poets.

In The Moment ... April 7, 2017 Show 067 Hour 1

It's Friday and it's time for our weekly Moment in Sound. This week we welcome Mark Petričić on the bayan . You can see him in concert tonight at the National Music Museum in Vermillion at 7 p.m. Central time. Also ... a preview show at the Muenster University Center in the Pit Lounge.

Maddie Lukomski and Libby Murphy are award-winning high school poets who triumphed in South Dakota’s Poetry Out Loud competition.

The national finals are May 3-4. Lukomski is on her way to Washington DC to represent South Dakota as state champion. Murphy is one of the state winners in the original poetry competition. The two discuss the value of committing verse to memory, the opportunities for young poets to find careers, and why you should always move your notebook to another room when you have the stomach flu.
