This Sunday morning, September 4, at 7:30, Denny Long and I will take to the veranda at the WCCO Radio booth at the Minnesota State Fair. It will be our 16th time doing a show live from beneath the shadow of the Giant Slide and sandwiched between Sweet Martha’s cookies and the Ye Olde Mill. But more significantly, it will be the 400th Healthy Matters radio broadcast.
That’s right. Since our first broadcast in January 2009, we have done 399 one-hour shows and I tell you what – we’re going to keep doing it until we get the hang of it! The 400th attempt will be on Sunday which just so happens to be one of our popular State Fair shows.
So consider this your invitation to join Denny and me on Sunday morning! Last week we had a pretty good crowd at the radio booth around the corner of Underwood and Carnes, and that was only for the 399th show, small potatoes compared to the awesome-ness of the 400th show.

As life-changing and memorable as it will be to be in the audience for the 400th show on Sunday, there is LOTS more to do at the Fair. Here’s a recap of some cool activities related to medicine. Continue reading “Our 400th radio show!”
