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!!

When Did Tanya Tucker And Glen Campbell Date? Tucker Wants To Say One Last Goodbye

George Jones and Tammy Wynette tied the knot - making their infamous relationship official.  Glen Campbell and Tanya Tucker may not have gotten to the altar, but that doesn't mean that theirs was any less scandalous or headline-grabbing.  For the brief period of a year and a half (1980-1981), Campbell (who was 44 at the time)  and Tucker (then 21) turned heads, sang songs, abused substances, made headlines, and got everyone's attention in the process.  And when it was over, what started spontaneously was ended just as quick.  Or was it?
