James Rabe started his radio career as a 4 year old, yelling, "FORE!" for a commercial his dad was producing. Right now he's thinking a lot about Christmas as he was growing up. A family of six kids in a big ol' house in Northern Michigan. Lots of snow, lots of shoveling, and lots of noisy holidays around the dinner table.
