A new studio at Northland Community and Technical College’s East Grand Forks Campus is the centerpiece of Pioneer 90.1’s spring pledge drive. “Pioneers Heading West” is the theme of the drive that runs March 30 through April 6. The independent public radio station’s headquarters will remain in Thief River Falls, where the station first went on the air 40 years ago, but the remote studio in East Grand Forks will open the station to involvement from students and staff on Northland’s East Grand Forks Campus.
The pledge drive kicks off Friday, March 30 with a live concert by the band Little Winter at 2PM. It wraps up Friday, April 6 with a Battle of the Bands at 7PM. Both events are at the Northland Community and Technical College Theater in Thief River Falls.
