Growing up, being on the radio is all I ever dreamed of doing. I started as the bear mascot for a station in my hometown of Wausau, Wisconsin, that aired Chicago Cubs games. I finally DID end up on the radio, working weekends and overnights while I earned a BA from UW-Eau Claire. I worked on the air in Eau Claire for nearly 20 years. After I met my beautiful wife, we got married (in Jamaica), and moved to Rochester in 2012. In my spare time, I like to get out on the mountain bike, catch House Hunters on TV or try one of Minnesota's many great craft beers. While I'm a Twins and Wild fan, I do confess to rooting for certain MLB, NFL, and Big 10 teams from a state just east of here. (You can take the boy out of Wisconsin, but you can't take the Wisconsin out of the boy!)

Here’s Just How Many Crows There Are in Downtown Rochester
It's a right of autumn, almost as much as seeing your first pumpkin spice latte-flavored or scented item: the crows return to roost in downtown Rochester. But if you've ever wondered if they're still here (and all the crow poop on the sidewalk wasn't a sign), check out this video…
Why Was This Minnesota Bus Cheering For The Saints Yesterday?
While pretty much the entire state of Minnesota was displaying its Purple Pride yesterday, one lone bus dared to display a message that said, "Go Saints." What's up with that?!?

The Most Annoying Part of A Minnesota Winter
