Born in Michigan, for 16 years James Rabe called Rochester, MN home. In fact, even when he didn’t live here he still did…whenever he’d be on his way to his annual kidney transplant checkup, he’d tell everyone, “I’m going home.” James started as a weekend announcer at KROC, then night guy (anyone remember the Lord of the Night?), and then mornings, first with Tracy McCray, and then, Cori Jensen. James then went to Fargo, to find his fortune… and to get laid off. Now, after five years waking up Idaho’s Magic Valley, James is coming home as the new morning show host on Y-105. In his spare time he cooks, reads, writes, and misses his lady friend back in Idaho.
