Weekend watch: Radio Stars CD release party
Merrill Piepkorn stepped aside from his daily spot on North Dakota Public Radio’s “Hear it Now” (though he’s still heard daily with “Dakota Datebook”), so he could devote more energy to his stage endeavor, “Dakota Air: The Radio Show.” One of the by-products of the refocus has been more time with his band, The Radio Stars.
The group has a new CD, “Stayin’ Put,” and celebrates the release with an 8 p.m. party at Evergreen Event Center, 302 27th St. N., Fargo. The $10 admission gets you an autographed copy of the disc with half of the door going to Messiah Lutheran Church youth projects.
The Radio Stars play the Country Gospel Concert and Chili Feed at Messiah Lutheran Church, 2010 Elm St., Fargo, at 5:30 p.m. on Friday. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for ages 18 and younger or $25 for a family. (701) 237-6770.
