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!

Finally, A ‘Lite’ Margarita Mix That Doesn’t Taste Terrible, Scales Review

I love margaritas, but I have a hard time with the fact that they are packed with sugar.  So much so that your average margarita is 350-500 calories.  Get a big enough one and it's the equivalent of eating a stack of candy bars.   Sometimes when I'm out shopping I'll try a new low calorie option to see how it goes.   Up until now, they've all tasted pretty terrible.  This time I tried the more expensive mix called "Scales."

Guy Creates Most Redneck MN Cities List, Can’t Find Towns On A Map [VIDEO]

I'm not offended if someone calls me a redneck, especially when it comes to this guy's criteria.  I shop at Walmart.  I hunt and fish.  I drive a truck.  I guess that makes me a redneck, but at least I can tell the general region of these towns on a map.

Survivorman Les Stroud Will Be Performing In Danbury, and Here’s What Happens At The Show [VIDEO]

I'm a big fan of Les Stroud, and I recently heard that the star of the show 'Survivorman' will be performing at St. Croix Casino in Danbury.  But what do they mean performing?  This guy is just a survivalist right?  Well if you've watched the show, you've seen him rock the harmonica a time or two.  It turns out that he's a pretty talented singer songwriter.  He describes the show as him combining his three loves:  Singer songwriting, nature, and film making.  Check out the video!

Why Does Every Liquor Store In Superior Need To Have a Bar In It?

Maybe you haven't noticed it, but I guarantee you will now.  Every place that has liquor for sale in Superior has either a lounge or bar attached or inside the liquor store.  But why is this?  I had heard the rumor for a while, but after the Harbor View Super One opened it's liquor store with it's miniature bar inside, I decided to dig in and find and answer.

Watch an Aerial View Of The Progress On Highway 53 Relocation Project in Virginia [VIDEO]

I follow Above & Beyond The Range on Facebook because of the amazing drone videos they capture across the Northland.  I drive by the highway 53 relocation project every couple of weeks, but it's hard to see the project from the current road.  Well, it just so happens that the same weekend I drove by the project, they were getting a tour of the area and published this awesome video.

As Soon As The Weather Gets Nicer People Drive Like Idiots

Today was a legitimately nice day in the Northland.  Temperatures hit the 70s and it felt just nice.  The sun was out, I was driving back from an appointment in Carlton, when I nearly was taken off the road by a car that cut into my lane on I 35.  I shrugged it off, kept my cool and kept going.   Just minutes later another car passed me going close to 90 and "shot the gap" in between me and a semi.  What the heck was going on?!  It happens every year at this time.   Nicer weather and people drive like idiots.
