David Drew

I am Duluth, Minnesota born and raised.  Early on I was fed only organic foods, having only the finest oils ritualistically  applied to my skin......once I realized I was being raised for either trade or consumption I quickly found a new, more stable home environment -- but still in Duluth! My only surviving schools are Grant Elementary (Go Grizzlies!) and UMD (Go Bulldogs!), having attended both Washington Junior HS (Go artsty apartment building!) and Duluth Central HS (Go...Condos?! ).  After a brief move to Minneapolis after college, I came back to the area I love and have been here ever since. I grew up in radio, with my dad programing WGGR and later doing The David John & Granny Show for WDSM.  My first job in radio was in college with John Michaels and a fun crew at KZIO, where I learned a lot, and I have stayed in it ever since. Working with the amazing staff at B105 is only topped by all the cool listeners I get to meet along the way.  Now a few things about me... Pet Peeve: People who create drama for attention....chill. Favorite Drink:  Depends on the mood, but lately been trying different rums.  I also love Tequila and trying different seasonal microbrews. Favorite Movie: I am a HUGE movie buff so this is impossible.  A few all time favorites are JAWS, Field Of Dreams, Almost Famous and City Slickers. Who I'd like to meet: I grew up secretly listening to Steve Martin stand up (my mom thought I was too young, she was probably right) and loved his energy and insanity.  It, for better or worse, shaped my sense of humor.  I'd love to meet him -- oh, and Meagan Fox or Reese Witherspoon. Hobbies: I love summer sports like softball and volleyball.  Although I don't think I'm a runner, I have run 9 Gary Bjorklund Half Marathons and every Gobble Gallop 5k so I guess it's a hobby.  In the fall I bowl a little—even managed to bowl a 300 game, much to my surprise. I also swear at the TV on Sundays in the Fall (Fantasy Football). Favorite Country Artists: Where do I start? Keith Urban and Brad Paisley are two favorites as I appreciate their guitar skills and song writing. I also have to mention Lady Antebellum not just because they are talented, but because we shared drinks in Memphis and they were very cool --and picked up the tab!

Steve Martin Shows David Letterman What to Expect After Retirement [VIDEO]

I loved David Letterman's final show.  Just the right amount of highlights, a great celebrity-filled final Top Ten list, a heartfelt thank you speech, and then Foo Fighters.

The big question is what David is going to do now that he's retired.  His old friend Steve Martin recently decided to make a video to show us.

Watch Bill Murray’s Highlights with David Letterman [VIDEO]

Tonight is the night, the last time David Letterman will sit behind the desk on late night TV.  I am really going to miss him.  He was someone I grew up watching and someone who did things years ago that nobody at the time was doing.  Now, everyone does the stunts and skits, but it was David Letterman who paved the path for the likes of Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, Conan O'Brien, etc.

Minnesota Timberwolves Finally Land Number One Pick in NBA Draft [VIDEO]

I've been a long suffering Minnesota Timberwolves fan, which means I'm in no way a fan of the NBA Lottery.  The NBA is the only sport where adding one star athlete to a team can make a big difference, but after all the horrible seasons the Timberwolves have had they've never won the number one pick in the draft.
