The talented and energetic trio of Ginger Bones stopped by the radio station to perform three new songs live in our CD library as the first in a new live music video series here at WTIP. The band hails from both the North Shore area and the Twin Cities, and recently released a new EP entitled “Home For Dinner”. They will also be part of WTIP’s Radio Waves music festival this September.
Human remains were discovered near a makeshift campsite in April 2019 near the Sioux Hustler Trail that runs through the BWCAW. Law enforcement later identified the remains as those of 29-year-old Jordan Grider, a New Mexico resident who was attempting to spend an entire winter camping in the BWCA. Authorities believe he was eaten by wolves, likely after he died from an unknown injury. In this episode, host Joe Friedrichs and DNR Conservation Officer Sean Williams visit the site where Grider made his final camp.
