I love talk radio. Most of my radio career has been spent listening to opinions, getting viewpoints, interviewing policy makers, bureaucrats, and people with good, or not so good ideas. Sioux Falls and South Dakota are my home. I have lived here over half of my life. Original stomping grounds were Chicago, with short stints in Sioux City, Kansas City and the home of the Salukis, Carbondale, Illinois. Best job I have ever had, except this one, was being mayor of Sioux Falls from 1974 to 1984. Worst job I ever had was cleaning dormitories at SIU, in Carbondale. People can be real slobs. The way we communicate is changing, the web, facebook, twitter. KSOO radio is adapting and adding those methods to keep you informed about local news. We hope you will join and stay with us...
