Rayman has been a staple and pretty much the face of KOOL 101.7 for years as he entertained on the radio and brought you home with your favorite music and his knowledge of the artists and the behind the scenes stories in the making of that music.
The Rolling Stones are coming to the TCF Stadium in Minneapolis on June 3rd, and Kool 101.7 wants to get you there for FREE! Listen each weekday for your chance to be caller 7 and win tickets to our private Rolling Stones Ticket Drop Party! But, if you don't win tickets to the private party, there's still a chance to win!
I've worked with Rayman for the last 8 years, and it's turning out to be difficult to see him go into retirement. I'm happy for him, because he definitely deserves this next stage in life. Still, I'm going to miss seeing him everyday at the studios. Things won't be the same without the old rock n' roller.
Everyone here at KOOL 101.7 is sad that Rayman has decided to start his retirement, we all knew this day would come, but that doesn't make it any easier. We are happy for him though, and wish him a happy and long retirement, do you want to send Rayman a special retirement message?
Rayman and KOOL 101.7 have gone together like peanut butter and jelly since the station first launched 20 years ago. As Ray would put it though, "This jam has got to spread, baby!" After two decades of playing the Northland's favorite hits, Rayman has decided to hang up his headphones.
He's zany, unpredictable, and a little bit of a handful. But that's what we love about him. At our last monthly all-staff meeting, I decided to turn the camera on Rayman to let everyone see what goes on behind the scenes.

Rayman has done many things in his life, but never has he personally lit any fireworks. The rest of the KOOL staff figured what time would be better for Ray's first fireworks adventure than the 4th of July?
Over the past several days, listeners to Kool 101.7 were asked to vote on Rayman's hair styles. The Kool 101.7 Facebook page was also involved in the poll. The styles were shaggy, and pony tail, and voters chose the style they liked best.
I love long hair, and have worn it long almost all my life (except when i shaved my head.) I usually just wash it and fluff it a little and I'm good for the day. One day my friend Jeanne from Mix 108, put it in a pony tail, and I wore it that way for a few days...
