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.

He did admit it might take awhile for the house to sell.

I played it, and to my amazement, found it was a copy of the Cryan Shames first album I picked up somewhere called Sugar & Spice the Cryan Shames.

Why Do Zebra’s have Stripes?

I guess I never really gave it much thought. I sort of believed the answer was pretty much like why leopards have spots. Now, researchers say they have finally discovered  the answer. The black-and-white pattern helps repel bloodthirsty, disease-carrying flies by disrupting their vision and making it difficult for the biters to land, according to a study by California scientists.

Why Do Poor People Smoke More?

Even though people are smoking less, a new report shows that poor people are smoking more than ever. A logical question is "if they are poor, where do they get money to smoke?" The answer is alarming. According to an article in CNN, cigarette manufacturers have lowered the price of smokes in poorer neighborhoods, and increased the use of billboards and cigarette brands in lower income neighborhoods.
