This Saturday promises to be another gorgeous late-Summer day in Minnesota. What better way to spend it than to head out to the State Fair? And if you do hit the Fair on Saturday be sure to stop by the AM1280 The Patriot in its strategic new location near the corner of Dan Patch and Cosgrove.
This Saturday's NARN First Team broadcast promises to be another history making show. Last year, we introduced fairgoers to the inaugural NARN Butter Carving Contest where contestants did their best to capture Jay Larson's likeness in butter. This year, we will have our second butter carving contest at around 11:15am with a special surprise guest subject. We will also conduct the forty-third annual NARN Scotch Egg eating contest. No Atomizer, for the last time there isn't any Scotch in the egg.
Winners in both contests will receive special prizes. All contestants in both contests with receive t-shirts compliments of Chachi, Inc. The Obama shirts were very popular last week and they are a great way to stand out in a crowd and send a message.
We're also working on a very special guest appearance. Until we have official confirmation, we can't divulge any details. Let's just say that when it comes to hypnotizes crowds, Obama's got nuthin' on this gal.
If you can't make it out to the Fair, you can listen to all the frivolity on AM 1280 The Patriot over the airwaves or via the internet stream. The Margaret Marten & Sidekick show kicks things off at 9am. The First Team follows at 11am. Then, it's Ed & Mitch in the middle from 1pm-3pm. Finally, King & Michael fight over who gets to have the Final Word from 3pm-5pm. A day at the State Fair with The Patriot holds a lot of promise.
