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!!

What’s Wrong With Bob Dylan? Acceptance Speech At Person Of The Year Award Ceremony Shows He Hasn’t Learned A Thing From His Past

Apparently Bob Dylan is a mean, vengeful human being.  At least that's the personality he chose to disclose at his acceptance speech as the MusiCares Person of the Year - at a ceremony on Friday evening.  The event - a precursor to the Grammy's - was a hot ticket event as the reclusive Dylan usually shy's away from the press and the public.  Maybe he should have on this night, too.
