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.

In what some call an unusual move, L'Wren's estate was left to Mick instead of her two siblings, according to an article in CNN. Some may also question the timing the will  written in 2013. That brings up the question that perhaps she had a premonition of things to come?

Rayman’s Song of the Day-We Didin’t Start the Fire by Billy Joel [VIDEO]

The lyrics are a list of events that Joel felt his generation was not responsible for. A lot of the references are to the Cold War (US vs. Russia), a problem his generation inherited. In the liner notes of Piano Man: The Very Best of Billy Joel, Joel explains that he wrote this song after a conversation with John Lennon's son Sean.

Mick Jagger Says Goodbye To Longtime Girlfriend L’Wren Scott Yesterday.[VIDEO]

As one of the original Rolling Stones fans, (still am), I feel terrible when I read about Mick's being devastated by the death of his longtime girlfriend. To be honest, I worry about his health. It's not easy being Mick Jagger, and finding that certain mate that understands and loves him as a person instead of the front man for the Rolling Stones is difficult if not almost impossible.
