From Grand Marais, and Thief River Falls, to Mankato and Winona, and just about everywhere in between, we’ve got Minnesota covered. Our combined audience is about 250,000 devoted listeners.  Ampers has no affiliation with Minnesota Public Radio (MPR) and receives no financial support from MPR.

In an effort to contain the spread of communism in Southeast Asia, the United States recruited, trained and financed the Hmong and Loas to serve as surrogate soldiers in the American armed forces. Today, there are over 350,000 Hmong living in the United States, with over 81,000 individuals in Minnesota, the largest urbanized Hmong population in the US. Veterans Voices': The Secret War is a program featuring the stories of some of these veterans. To learn more, visit MinnesotaVets.org
