Glimpse into Dakota Air: The Radio Show (Video)

Good, clean, classic entertainment can be tough to come by sometimes.

Merrill Piepkorn, program host for Prairie Public’s Hear it Now, wanted to change that, one night at a time.

Merrill Piepkorn, host and executive producer of Dakota Air: The Radio Show.

So, he started Dakota Air: The Radio Show. Now in it’s second year, the show has entertained thousands across North Dakota, and into South Dakota and Minnesota. Basin Electric is a major sponsor.

Once a month, the show takes the stage in towns ranging from Bismarck and Jamestown, to smaller towns like Hazen and Wishek. Each show is tailored to the host city. “When we’re in Hazen in coal country, we’ll do some coal mining songs. When we’re in Bismarck, of course, we did more shows about state government,” Piepkorn says.
