We celebrate the 1983 Wayzata Club Hockey Team and one of its stars, Jonny "The Mouse" Mikkelson, who once told me "Our team was so good the varsity wouldn't play us." When asked why he didn't play varsity Mouse said, "Too little." Cutest ever. So, we salute the greatest Club Hockey Team ever, a squad so vaunted even Jim Craig's Miracle team wanted nothing to do with it. Trottier, Bossy, Gretzky, Messier ... dead! Long live the 1983 Wayzata Club Hockey team!

MAY B&B ...
November 16, 2007… Since that date, the Minnesota Wild cannot, and will not be considered a tough team.
I originally am from Washington D.C. and grew up in predominantly black neighborhoods. Largely because of that I developed a deeply rooted love/knowledge base with soul music, and to this day it remains my number-one passion-hobby.
I am friends with a man named LARRY GRAHAM, who used to be the bass player for a group named Sly and the Family Stone. Larry still fronts a band called Graham Central Station, and it has been a treat the last few years sitting on his Chanhassen couch learning more about my passion and the personalties that accompany said genre.
Larry tells some stories about the mercurial Sly that make me laugh and cry at the same time. He knows everybody and has tales to support the friendships. He also is close with BABYFACE, PRINCE and HOWARD HEWITT, three of my all-time faves. He heard me play a deep cut named "Hair" on my radio show years ago and had his people contact me. He reached out to become my friend and we have become quite close over the years, and he's there for me no matter what the topic is -- Vikings, his beloved Raiders or personal-life turmoil. Love that man.
Longstorylonger, 9-to-Noon plays old-school funky jams many in Minnesota never had heard. Back in '98 when I started here at KFAN I cut loose with Parliament's "Flashlight," BILL WITHERS "Use Me," "Lovely Day" and "Grandma's Hands" and the crowd absolutely loved it. Shoot, just today we played "Not Just Knee Deep" by Parliament and "More Bounce to the Ounce" by Zapp, and I received emails voicing appreciation for songs Rubes never had heard and wondering who did them. I love that.
So, every so often I'll post a funky-ass jam here and offer up some cool soul-music song ideas for those looking to expand their musicality and enhance the IPod love. The posted song is "Give Up the Funk" by GEORGE CLINTON and Parliament Funkadelic. If you'd like to slow it down a tad try "Can't Hide Love" by Earth, Wind and Fire and/or "I'd Rather Be with You" by BOOTSY COLLINS.
If you are looking for a sultry, sexy song try "Fire and Desire" by TEENA MARIE and RICK JAMES. If you ever need more please email me at email@example.com. We can get funky together!
