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!

Superior Residents Should Get Out An Enjoy The Superior Forest

When we moved to Superior years ago, neither of us knew much about the town.  Everyone in the Twin Ports talks about the great biking trails and paths around Duluth, but Superior rarely gets mentioned.  That's why I was a bit surprised a few years ago to find out that the city actually has it's own forest in the city limits.

‘Better Call Saul’ Has Finally Hit Its Stride In Season 2 [VIDEO]

I've been enjoying 'Better Call Saul' since it started last year.  However, there was something missing.  I couldn't put my finger on it, but it was just missing an element that 'Breaking Bad' has.  It wasn't the acting, the story line was good enough, but the recipe wasn't just right yet.  The most recent episode finally found that missing ingredient, and now the show is cooking.

Setting The Record Straight: Tourist’s Bad Trip Advisor Reviews For Famous Duluth Restaurants

We love our restaurants in Duluth and we often bring our friends from out of town to these places so they can get the best of Duluth.   But sometimes, out of town people have ridiculous expectations or just "don't get it" when it comes to our favorite places.   Let me set the record straight for these bad reviews.

Hong Kong Man Creates $50,000 Robot Rumored To Be Designed After Scarlett Johansson [VIDEO]

I don't know if I would be flattered or completely creeped out if I was Scarlett Johansson.  This guy spent a year and a half designing this life like robot.  He hasn't said he had Scarlett in mind, but other people are claiming it.  By looking at it, I think it's pretty obvious.  Watch the video for yourself and see if you think it's cool or if it's just disturbing.

Should You Vote Yes For Superior School Referendum? Here’s Information To Help You Decide

Today is an important date for voting in Superior.  It's not just the Wisconsin Primary, but locally there is also a referendum vote for improving the Superior School District facilities.  Of course, it will be an increased property tax, and some people oppose more taxes on a year where as residents we have already had added garbage and recycling fees added from our city.  As with any voting decision, being informed is very important.  So, I urge you to read up on what the proposed referendum is about and make your decision from there.

Mild Winter Doesn’t Translate To Mild Spring In The Twin Ports

I really got a beef with the weather now.  Just a few days ago I blogged about spring fever and a few things I couldn't wait to do.  The next day mother nature answered my blog with 2 inches of fresh snow and an extended forecast where we won't break 40 degrees.  So not only did we have a poor winter for seasonal activities, we have a poor start to spring as well.

The Walking Dead ‘Last Day On Earth’ Might Be The Last Episode I Watch

The season 6 finale of TWD left us on a cliffhanger, as was promised.  But I have a problem with the way they did it and the use of cliffhangers all season long.  In fact, when the credits rolled I, I rolled my eyes not believing that they've done it again.

Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs Don’t Last As Long As They Should

Compact fluorescent light bulbs have replaced our old favorite incandescent bulbs.  They are suppose to save energy, last 5 to 8 times longer, and save money in the long run.   They cost more to purchase, but the thought is that if the bulb lasts longer and uses less energy, it will be worth it.   Well I've replaced far too many cfl's in a short period of time to make any of this true.
