Rayman

I've been in Twin Ports radio close to twenty years. I started in November of 1995 on talk radio WEBC AM 560. I joined the Kool 101.7 staff in 1998 and became the Afternoon Drive personality in 2001. In 2005 I was honored to receive a LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD by the MINNESOTA ROCK AND COUNTRY HALL OF FAME, now the MID AMERICA MUSIC HALL OF FAME. I was born in Cleveland ohio and raised in Duluth. Although I've traveled to all but two of the fifty states, and lived in ten of them, I'm proud to call the Northland my home. Thank you for sharing part of your afternoon with me on Kool 101.7 over the years.

They went out of their way to insure that everyone had a wonderful time.

When it's time to replace your vehicle, many folks are opting for used rather than new. Often times in order to grab a "great deal" before someone else beats them to it, they wind up with a faulty vehicle. Just because a used car is cheap and seems OK during a test drive doesn't mean it's safe to buy

Rayman’s Song of the Day-Saturday Night by Bay City Rollers [VIDEO]

Saturday Night was first recorded in 1973 with original Rollers vocalist Nobby Clarke, but this version tanked when it was released in the UK. The band, as well as songwriters Martin and Coulter, had faith in the song and re-recorded it for US versions of their 1975 album  Wouldn't You Like It
