Gene Miller has owned MBM Auto in Minot ND for over 40 years. He knows European cars! This small shop in Minot has a BIG reputation for quality work for those who drive European vehicles. I love visiting with Gene. When we do interviews I feel like I'm part of "Click & Clack", what a great show that was! Listen in. With only 15 minutes I had to cut out a lot of the joking but it's still a very fun interview.
Andy and I have never been able to contain our conversations to the 15 minutes of air time allowed for the Minot Today Radio program. Our last conversation followed that past pattern BUT we did actually manage to get it down to two programs. Here is part two of two of our latest conversation.
When Andy and I get together it's had to put the breaks on our conversation at the 15 minute mark that I'm allotted over the air. Andy's enthusiasm always gets me going. I'm sure it's that enthusiasm that super motivates his coaching staff and players. I find Andy to be a true "motivational" speaker. I'm sure you too will think this is one of the fastest 15 minutes you've spent listening to Minot Today.
What's new at Minot State University? President Dr. Shirley is back to tell us about the new school year at Minot State University. There is a lot of exciting stuff discussed here so please take the 15 minutes to listen in.

It's hard to miss the Dakota Boy's & Girl's Ranch Thrift Store on Broadway but it's easy to be unaware of the GREAT work they support. This organization has made a positive difference in a countless number of young men's and women's lives. Take 14 minutes to learn about this amazing ministry and how you can be a part of it.
Rarely do I walk into a storefront and am "Wowed" but I sure was by POEM of Minot. I was greeted by @James Adams who gave me a full tour and it didn't take long to realize that POEM and James were both amazing. It's no wonder however as James clued me in on the brains behind POEM. Please listen in, I believe you will be surprised at the story James tells.
