Here's more than you ever cared to know about me. I'm a "lifer".  ...Born and raised on Minnesota's Iron Range...moving to the Twin Ports area 20 years ago. I've worked for these radio stations for18 years and love every minute of it.  Although you hear me on the radio during the mid-day, my main role is Production Manager for our stations - writing and producing commercials. In my spare time (what's that?)  I'm married with one child.  I'm active in my son's school and volunteer in the community and serve on a variety of boards and committees.  I love to cook and have collected records for my entire life.  Although I spin "the Northland's Favorite Hits" on the radio, my collection is mostly comprised of classic country.   I'm also interested in business and economics. Thanks for listening!!

Which 2016 Presidential Candidates Looked Ridiculous Eating At The Iowa State Fair?

In a lot of ways, it's become a prerequisite to running for the highest office in our country: You're required to attend the Iowa State Fair and - more importantly - eat something on a stick.  While it says nothing at all about the qualifications these candidates posses, it somehow makes them more like us.

Rift Lives On For Alabama and Mark Herndon

Last night's ACM Awards in Las Vegas put the spotlight once again on the three year old rift between Mark Herndon and the rest of the band Alabama. The show opened with Brad Paisley performing his current hit "Old Alabama" - which included a "surprise" performance by the group Alabama. ...Only something was noticeably amiss as only Randy Owen, Teddy Gentry, and Jeff Cook were present; Drummer Mark Herndon was absent at the event. He was also visibly cropped out of the vintage picture of the group that served as a back-drop on the stage.
