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.

Lake Nebagamon finally became ice free last week, and folks are busy fishing, boating, and getting their boats and pontoons tied to their docks. On my way to the radio station this morning, I stopped to view the lake and thought the water level a bit high. In fact it's almost parallel to the boat landing dock.

Beats is the Big Winner if They Sell to Apple

According to an article in the Huffington Post, Apple is set to purchase Beats Electronics for 3.2 billion. Beats can't loose on this one. First off though, the question is why? Could it be that Apple feels they cannot top the quality of Beats headphones? Not. Beats headphones are very poorly rated, and terribly overpriced. Could it be that Apple need to acquire the loyal members of Beats? Not. Okay, how about Beats streaming? Not. So what's the reason?
