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.

It's refreshing to see a side of Keith few people realize he has. The book is available today, September 9th.

It only takes two to four hours for a virus to get off, say, a coffee pot handle and onto a desk.

Rayman’s Song of the Day-The Long Run by The Eagles

In an interview with Don Felder, he says: "When you try to match yourself, it gets harder and harder the more successful you are. So we got to a point where we realized we've got to just wrap this up and end it here and get out of the studio and get on the road. There were a lot of arguments and dissension and contentious arguments about songs and schedules. It was really not heading in the right direction."

The Rising Cost of K-Cups [VIDEO]

 

For the lifestyle I have, k-cups are a perfect fit. I often don't have time to sit around and wait for the coffee pot to take it's sweet time. When I run out, I shop locally, and more often than not, find my favorite. Sometimes, their sold out, in that case, I use Amazon. They always have what I like, at what used to be a very reasonable price. Not so anymore, and that's the problem.
