ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton has his parameters for a weekly radio show. Now all he needs is a radio station to air it.

The Democratic governor’s office put out a request Friday for stations to bid for the rights to the show. It would continue a tradition started under then-Gov. Jesse Ventura where the governor gets an unfiltered program each week.

Dayton is seeking at least one hour and up to two hours of air time each week. Like Ventura and Gov. Tim Pawlenty, Dayton wants control over content and the ability to take the show on the road.

Bids are due Feb. 7. The goal is to sort it out by Feb. 18 so the show can start airing soon after.

The contract would run two years.
