I grew up in Beulah, ND and have been hooked on radio for a long time. At the age of 10, I began producing radio shows in my bedroom on an old tape recorder. Since I didn’t have a transmitter, I just played my shows really loud and annoyed my parents! Years later, I began broadcasting at real radio stations with actual transmitters. Fast forward 24 years and I'm still on the air! When I am not enjoying these great hits with you on Cool 98.7, I am enjoying camping at Harmon Lake, Graner Park and Lake Sakakawea
I came down from Minot, North Dakota’s “Magic City” back in 2001 and was pleased to hook up with a station that refuses to let the great songs go away. You’ll hear me early afternoons on Cool - I try to present local news of interest and maybe even break some national stories. On the occasional cranky day- I’ll pull out my soapbox and let out a rant. Loyal listeners can verify that last part. My daughter has moved to Fargo which makes me sad…partly because she left a loud cat at my house
If you're looking for more of the same old song and dance, and the same old talking points, Jim Walsh is NOT your man. Jim is an "equal opportunity offender" host, who believes everybody should be accountable, regardless of whether they have a "D" or an "R" next to their name. In real life, Jim is actually a very friendly fellow from the Philadelphia area who enjoys a quiet life with his wife, two cats and two guitars (a guitar for each cat). If you're fed up with "conservaclone' radio, give Jim a listen!
I am a North Dakota native. I started in radio years ago in this building. I have held a few other jobs that took me away from ND, but I returned home when the opportunity came. When I am not on air I can be found doing yard work, working out at the gym, reading, baking, spending time with family, serving ice cream, jogging, laughing with friends or snuggling two kitties.
A native New Yorker finding my way in North Dakota's Capitol, I have successfully navigated through Theodore Roosevelt National Park in Medora, danced with joy to the Medora Musical, cruised on the Missouri River, observed the most beautiful sky in the nation, joined a gym, finished dead last in a Wallyball League sponsored by Bismarck Parks and Rec, voted in a Presidential election without needing to register, and made one whole friend. It's been quite the adventure with many more to come
I came to Bismarck-Mandan from the East Coast. After being in the Radio Business for nearly 30 years, I've learned one thing: In Radio, a person is judged by the size of their U-Haul. Well, mine isn't much bigger now but I'm having a blast playing Bismarck-Mandan's greatest hits for you.
