Loss Of A Legend
Steve Cannon, one of the greatest radio show hosts the Twin Cities has ever known, died yesterday at age 81. This guy transcended generations. His 3 to 6pm time slot on 830AM ran from the late 1970s to 1997. He's the guy who, when asked why he doesn't take phone calls, said; "If you want to be on the radio, get your own show!" We'll do a short feature on Steve Cannon on Sunday's Bike Radio program at 5pm 91.7fm or www.macalester.edu/wmcn. Anyway, the after work ride was 14 miles on the time trial training course. I did some good time trial pace work. My legs were still pretty stiff from last weekend's Loon State Camp though.
