Can you specify times for performer appearances at the Minnesota State Fair?

My husband & I are very excited to learn that Ann Reed will be one of your morning show guests on the day that we will be visiting the State Fair, Friday 8/25/06. We would love to catch her live, but the show seems to be a 3 hour window with other guests listed. At what time, please (even aproximately), will she be present/performing so that we can be sure to be there, cheering her on? Thank you!!

Dear Karen, I cannot walk around the Fair without Ann Reed's "Minnesota State Fair Song" playing on an endless tape loop in my head.

Ann's listed as appearing 6 - 9 a.m. simply because Dale and Jim Ed are planning on keeping her in front of a microphone for as many minutes as possible. It will be an AnnReedapalooza. You won't be able to escape her. So if you're an Ann fan, 6 am is the time to tune in.
