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

Montana Restaurants: Is My DoorDash Order Hurting More Than Helping?
So many of us have fallen in love with the convenience of DoorDash and other delivery services. The pandemic was one thing. Now it's an enormous time saver. However, I'm now concerned with reports of local restaurants taking a much bigger hit on these types of orders.
It’s Not All Insanity: Montana Has Lots of $50K Houses For Sale
