#217 John Hines
At one point in the show we had John Hines, Paul Stagg, Tom Barnard, and Don Shelby on at the same time. Minnesotans rejoiced.
John Hines got started in radio in Illinois then moved home to WWTC in 1973, then spent six years with Hubbard Broadcasting on KSTP AM and hosting Twin Cities Today on KSTP TV. He returned to radio in 1981 when Hines and Berglund helped take WLOL FM to the top of the ratings. Then it was on to K102, where he helped earn Station of the Year honors from the Country Music Association. These days, John can be heard regularly on WCCO Radio. The thing he enjoys the most is the interaction with listeners who call in to contribute to the show.
