Paradise Center for the Arts Executive Director Kristin Twitchell will be joined by former Paradise Executive Director Ryan Heinritz and musician Carolyn Hanson on today's KDHL AM Minnesota program.

We will talk about some upcoming October events including a couple shows this weekend.

Friday night 7:30 it's American Highway and Sunday, October 8 at 4:00 p.m. the Okee Dokee Brothers will perform.

The Okee Dokee Brothers are an award winning duet and information on the Paradise website says they "help kids build a better world through music."

American Highway features, "classic country sounds from some of Southern Minnesota's finest musicians.  A tribute to the best of the American road trip experience."

Merlin Players Professional Theatre performs a very touching show based on a 40 year relationship between two people through letters.

Julianna Skluzacek stars in the production and will join us Thursday, October 12 to give us more details about the show which runs Friday, October 13 through Saturday, October 21 with just one Sunday matinee performance on October 15.

AM Minnesota is 9:30 a.m. and if you can't tune in then go to and watch the program at a more convenient time for you.
