My favorite radio station in the Country...nay...the globe...is KGPZ with the "real country" programming. I knew this is a nationally syndicated program, but still AWESOME! My brother texted me this weekend, and said the formatting changed. Does anyone know what happened to the real country format?

i will agree and say it was my favorite station in the world as well! it has turned into "z96 north country" now. with an emphasis on today's modern country....like the area needs more of those...however, depending how west you are, you can pick up 98.3 REAL country (same broadcast) out of bemidji. or if you somehow have internet, there are a few stations down south you can live stream it from.

i will be calling the new station to inform them of my disappointment, but i doubt they will care as long as they are making money

94.3 out of Aitkin still plays old country, but I don't know if it makes it up to you.

Let's all reach out to the station and voice our dissatisfaction with the switch. At the end of the day it may be about profits...which is why businesses exist. Maybe there were too few of us listeners to keep it going??

i don't think it was the listeners, but maybe it was. seems like every gas station and cafe had it on! they had plenty of good advertisement too such as L&M and a few others in GR and the surrounding Range. it's a bummer that it's gone, that is for sure. it was perfect cabin music with all the old classics, and newest country westerns.

Used to be step #1 of the morning (before making coffee even)...turning it on; and the last thing of the day...shutting it off...at the cabin. Will miss it.

I found the station with a phone app, but it won't be the same. Not like tuning in the radio, that's for sure.

The former station owner, Lee Latto, died last fall. The station was bought by RedRock Radio. I'm guessing that's the reason for the programming change

So now I hear that the Bemidji radio station has 107.9 out of GR. Is this a new thing? This puts us real country lovers back where we need to be.

98.3 Bemidji has the same "real country" program as KGPZ did.There radio identification says 98.3 Bemidji 107.9 Grand Rapids. Don't get 107.9 in Bigfork but 98.3 comes in good.

Is it just me, but does the 107.9 out of Grand Rapids sound like it isn't in "stereo"? 98.3 sounds good but 107.9 sounds very" tinny".

It's because 107.9 isn't truley broadcasting anything. They are just picking up 98.3's signal and amplifying it.

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      Ive been out a few times as well..have tried from the harbor all the way up to boyscout...have been getting a few everytime out but has been slow for me....been trolling crawlers with big colorado blades..have caught fish on flats by barkers,between the bridges,and out from clyde area....got 6 cats accidentally while trolling boards by the community hole south west side of spirit lake...water clarity still sucks in the harbor..a bit better the farther up river u go...has it been kinda slow for everyone?????ive been doing better on fish lake.lol

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂
    • LBerquist
      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.
