Ken Hayes

Hello, thanks for visiting my page! I've been here at B105 since 2007, and I've been a part of the Northland my whole life! I was born and raised on the Iron Range, and I've hopped around a few different parts of the country before returning to the Twin Ports where I call home. I love being close to the woods and the lakes where I can fish and hunt, and I think this is a great place for my wife and I to raise our kids. I love doing the Breakfast Club each morning with my co-host Cathy, and I thank you for waking up with us!

Chris Stapleton Joins Kings of Leon for A Crowd Pleasing Performance of ‘Simple Man’

I just love Chris Stapleton.  In Nashville on New Years Eve, he joined Kings of Leon for a performance of Lynyrd Skynryd's 'Simple Man' and nailed it.  He doesn't come in until the second verse, but once he does you can understand why he won a CMA for Male Vocalist of the year.

Things I Learned From My First PlayStation Network ‘Outage’, Your PS4 Becomes A Brick

I got home from work yesterday and I had a precious 2 hours of time before I needed to pick up the kids from school and be a functional adult again.  So what did that mean?  It was Star Wars Battlefront time.   2 full hours of blasting my way across the galaxy.  In reality, it would be more like getting shot a bunch as I'm kinda a noob to the game.  However, I couldn't connect to the network!  What!?  Turns out this isn't so uncommon, and as a new member to Playstation Network I can't say that makes me very comfortable.

Superior Ice Project ‘Castle’ Update on January 4th, 2016

Last year we followed the Ice Project from ground up, back to ground again, back up, and finally back to ground again.  It's a soap opera of the elements of Lake Superior and the unpredictable weather we experience here in the Twin Ports.  So this year, let's follow it again.

The Norovirus ‘Stomach Flu’ and How It Spreads

Health officials are warning about recent outbreaks of the Norovirus, which is commonly referred to as the stomach flu.  (It's not the flu at all, but I've given up telling people that.)  Diarrhea, vomiting, sometimes accompanied with a fever and body aches are the symptoms of the virus.  It's highly contagious and it's made its way through many families this winter already.

NBC’s ‘Superstore’ Sitcom Will Actually Make You Laugh [VIDEO]

It's been a while since I've seen a sitcom that makes you laugh.  Last night I stumbled on an episode of 'Superstore."  Basically it's a spoof on Walmart, and they get so much about it right.  I worked retail years ago, and I can relate to the workers and their struggles.  Also, they through in enough "people of walmart" realism to make it work.

Clay Matthews Shows Poor Sportsmanship in Packers Loss Yesterday

If this guy played on my team, I would be embarrassed as well.  You would think that these players some day would grasp the concept that they are role models.  Or maybe they would learn that every action they do is watched and scrutinized.  There could be something going on behind the scenes between these two, but it's what is seen on the field that proves your character.  What a poor display of sportsmanship.

My Best Christmas Gift? This PS4 Blows My Mind!
