Long time Minneapolis afternoon drive radio host, Steve Cannon, dies of cancer.
Morgan Mundane and Ma Linger will be missed.
As a former radio guy who grew up with Cannon...he was a once-in-a-lifetime talent. One of my idols and heros.
No one did it better.
He got the money......;-)

Sad to hear of this. I listened to Steve for many years when I lived in Minneapolis. I always got a kick out of his theme music "What do you mean you lost your dog?" Prayers to his family and his listeners on WCCO. He was always a class act.
