Steve Tanko

Here's more than you ever cared to know about me. I'm a "lifer".  ...Born and raised on Minnesota's Iron Range...moving to the Twin Ports area 20 years ago. I've worked for these radio stations for18 years and love every minute of it.  Although you hear me on the radio during the mid-day, my main role is Production Manager for our stations - writing and producing commercials. In my spare time (what's that?)  I'm married with one child.  I'm active in my son's school and volunteer in the community and serve on a variety of boards and committees.  I love to cook and have collected records for my entire life.  Although I spin "the Northland's Favorite Hits" on the radio, my collection is mostly comprised of classic country.   I'm also interested in business and economics. Thanks for listening!!

Sonny James Dead At 87; Country Performer Had Pop Success With “Young Love” In The 1950’s

Legendary country and pop music performer Sonny James has passed away at the age of 87.  Largely retired from the music business since 1983, James cast a wide net in music in the 1950's, 60's, and 70's.  While he found early success on the pop charts, James later carved out a career successfully covering pop hits for the country audience - racking up 26 Number One hits on the Billboard charts;  James held the record for the most number one country singles until the early 1980's when he was surpassed by Conway Twitty.
