Hi! I’m Tom Garrett, and for the past 15 years I’ve called Rochester my home. Originally from St. Paul’s east side, my radio career has brought me to the east coast and back. It’s hard to believe that I’ve been getting up at 3:45am for the past 25 years. My wife, Julie, and I are the proud parents of Michael. He’s 12 years cancer-free and studying to be a teacher at Winona State. When we moved to town in ’97 he was only 5 years old. Time flies, indeed. I’m here to wake you up each weekday morning with great music, the hot stories of the day, and on occasion some really great prizes. Thanks for making Y105 part of your morning routine!
