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.

Steven Van Zandt however reigns as the King of garage band music.

Anyway, here's six things you might not know about Santa I saw in USA Today, by Ted Carter, Mississippi Business Journal. I thought you might get a kick out of them.

You’re Fired Because You’re Too Attractive

Who would have ever thought that a good looking female would be fired because she was too attractive. In an article posted in the New York Times, that is exactly what has been happening, and all too often.
