Pete Hanson

I'm just a regular Minnesota guy that grew up on the north-side of the Cities (Fridley), spent some quality time at the U of M, chill on the weekends at the family cabin near Duluth, bleed Vikings purple, and miss the North Stars. I have a short attention span; and enjoy Pink Floyd, Johnny Cash, Zac Brown, 80s hair bands, coffee, beer, scotch, and long sunset walks on the beach. (One of those isn't true.) I'm a two-time cancer survivor now (Colorectal 2002, Kidney 2014), and know that life is damn short -- so by all means we should be playing as hard and as often as we can. I think that's it. (Did I mention that I have a short attention span?) Hit me up below on Facebook & Twitter.

Sun, Snow & Smiles Dominate At ’98 Country Ski Day’

Today's '98 Country Ski Day' at Powder Ridge near Kimball featured lots of sunshine, snow, and smiles. Light wind and a free craft beer tasting didn't hurt either. Cindy hit the slopes for the first time in 20 years and lived to tell about it. A great round of trivia in the bar was entertaining. Great to spend the day with 98  Country listeners & co-workers.

‘Spring Forward’ As Daylight Savings Time Begins Tonight
