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!

Minnesota Fishing Opener Weather Looks Like The Typical Cold, Rainy Weekend

It's almost a tradition where every Minnesota Fishing Opener, we get cool, windy, and rainy days.   This year you can add a slight chance of flurries in the morning for some icing on the cake, or the boat you could say.  It's an extended forecast at this point, but all signs point to a chance of rain for the Northland.

Does Anyone Else Have These Old Food Dehydrators?

I remember when I was a kid we used to have all sorts of fun dehydrated fruit snacks that my mom made with this dehydrator.  My mom dug it out from storage and was ready to throw it away when I intercepted it.  I wanted to use it and make delicious healthy snacks for my family.   But something went wrong!

Charcoal Chimney Is The Way To Go When Grilling

For years I've piled charcoal briquettes into my weber grill and then doused it with lighter fluid, lit it, sear my eyebrows off, and then wait for the coals to get hot.  That's the method that was passed down from generation to generation to me.   My eyes were opened recently to the wonderful advantages of using a charcoal chimney.  It's now the only way to go when grilling with charcoal.

Dad Blog: Do’s & Don’ts For Mothers Day Gifts

"What do you have planned for me for Mother's Day," my wife asked me this last Sunday afternoon.  This was like getting hit by a bus in a blind intersection.  I have to plan something?  A gift isn't enough?  Apparently I need to step up my game.  So I've put together a list of Do's & Don'ts when it comes to Mother's Day gifts.

Ghostbusters Remake Trailer Is Most Hated In History, And Here’s Why [VIDEO]

I don't like being a hater, and I gave this trailer the benefit of the doubt before I watched it.  I love all these women and I think they are hilarious.  Seriously funny!  Melissa McCarthy has been on of my favorites in the last few years.  Kate McKinnon kills it on SNL.  Kristen Wiig has great talent, and Leslie Jones has been a solid new addition to late night.  But none of that shines in this trailer.

We Turned A Boat Trailer Into A Wood Hauler Redneck Style

This weekend a group of us did quite a bit of wood cutting.  It was a beautiful weekend and this time of year is perfect.  It's cool enough to work hard, there aren't many bugs, and the ground has just dried up enough to be out cutting trees down.  A problem we've had in the past has been getting the logs back to camp to split them up.  Then we came up with this idea.
