Get to know Minnesota all over again
Our stations know Minnesota. That’s because Ampers is a collection of 16 independent community radio stations across our great state. From the North Shore of Lake Superior to the city streets of Minneapolis. From the Blue Earth River near Mankato to the natural beauty of Grand Rapids, we’ve got Minnesota covered.
Ampers stations have long been airing the artistic and cultural heritage of Minnesota. Thanks to funding from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund, we’re now able to create more great programs and share those offerings with you.
So take a few minutes to enjoy some of the hundreds of shows and segments on this site. Come back often. We’ll be adding more every day.
Look! Instant access to Ampers member station online streams.
Fur Trading RendezvousIt’s a trap! Arts and Cultural Heritage Producer Jeff Carmack visits with a group of people who have carried the traditions and skills of colonial fur traders into the modern world. Rendezvous Re-enacters are what they are called, and recently they came together in Clearwater, MN, for a Saturday of demonstrations and family fun. Rendezvous are plentiful during the summer months in Minnesota, and there will be a very large one coming up Saturday and Sunday, August 16 and 17th at the Forrest City Stockade, a fort that played a role in the Sioux Uprising in 1862 and is located only about 45 minutes from St. Cloud.
