Northern Community Radio is an independent, nonprofit organization that operates a unique community-based public radio station, KAXE. KAXE serves most of north central and northeastern Minnesota with a 100,000-watt signal originating in Grand Rapids at 91.7 FM. Northern Community Radio also operates translators in Brainerd at 89.9 FM and in Bemidji at 105.3 FM. KAXE is a different kind of radio. When you tune in KAXE you hear northern Minnesota...its people, environment, communities, attitude. These are the "stars" of KAXE programs. KAXE is a place where people gather to dance to good music or to find out about the flowers in the ditches and the birds at their feeders. It's a place to learn about the world, laugh, meet good neighbors, and share ideas.
