Montana Radio Cafe in the New York Times

By Beacon Staff

I went to the New York Times Web site this morning and was surprised to find a familiar face on the front page. It was Scott Johnston, owner of the Montana Radio Café in Creston. I’ve met Johnston numerous times and written a story about him, as well as a blog. And Lido has an excellent slide show of photos taken when we hung out with Johnston for a morning to do an interview.

Johnston works hard to keep his little station alive. Hopefully the Times’ story signals positive things to come. At the very least, it brings well-deserved attention to a man who cares deeply about the Flathead Valley’s arts community. He’s a good man who likes good music, and I think we can all agree that’s a good thing.

Here’s the Times’ story, as well as my story and blog. And click here for Lido’s slide show. The Times also has a multimedia piece.

Johnston’s station can be found at KXZI 101.9 FM or on the Web at www.montanaradiocafe.org.
