Greetings from The MOOSE Morning Show! (It's hard to believe I've been around this joint for 26 years.) I'm always honored that you've spent part of your day with 94.7 The MOOSE. We try really hard every day to capture the best of the Gallatin Valley and for me, that means waking up at 4:30 am and heading downtown to our studios. After living in the Valley for 30 years, Bozeman never gets dull. Sure, it's a lot bigger than when I was in college at Montana State but it's never been 'dull'. If you ever come across something you think I should know about, don't hesitate to reach out. Could be a new band I need to hear or a new restaurant you think I should try. I'd love to hear about it. You can always call the studio at (406) 587-0951 during the MOOSE Morning Show from 6am to 10am. If you'd like to reach out via email, no problem. Just send an email HERE. I really do check my email and will address any issues you might have. Suggestions, questions and comments are always welcome. Really. -Michelle

Sacks Thrift Store: We’re Donating to Death
When someone says 'they're full', you don't force them to have another burger. Sacks Thrift Store in downtown Bozeman is currently at capacity with signs all over their outside donation shed. Yet lazy people are still piling crap outside their doors in the after hours. Not cool.

Bozeman Price Check: $8 Pints, $32 Fried Chicken, $20 Tuna Rolls?
I've sort of lost perspective of the cost of basic things in the last 18 months. Turns out, Bozeman has it's own brand of hefty inflation. Supply chain issues are VERY serious around here and those problems are hitting the restaurants big time.
