Natural Awakenings Twin Cities

AM950 — The Progressive Voice of Minnesota

AM950 is the only Progressive Talk Radio station in Minnesota. They strive to provide the best progressive programming available and feature national talkers Thom Hartmann, Stephanie Miller, David Packman and Brad Friedman. They are also dedicated to local programming that creates a community forum for important Minnesota progressive issues.

Weekend programs highlight locally produced lifestyle shows, including: “Food Freedom Radio” to envision a food system respectful of the water, soil, planet and people; “Connections Radio” which features engaging conversations that explore both the celebrations and challenges of living; and “Native Roots Radio–I’m Awake” for discussions on national and local Native American news and events.
Meaningful programming about health and aging include: “New Beginnings with Freddie Bell” which offers stimulating topics for baby boomers regarding housing, fitness, employment and health for those moving into their “second act” of life; and “Living Healthy & Aging Well” is all about personal health and improving quality of life throughout life’s journey.

Intellectual exchanges of ideas are explored on “Philosophy Talk,” which challenges listeners to identify and question their assumptions and to think about things in new ways; while “Paul Metsa’s Wall of Power Radio Hour” brings together music, entertainment and cool people from all walks of life.
