Radio wasn't the same when you left the airwaves. The Earth will no longer be the same now that you've left it. Heaven gained more than one personality tonight. We'll miss you.

You were a class act. You made the drive home a pleasure to look forward to, not to be dreaded. Thanks.

Cannon often said he wanted his headstone to read, "He gave a great time and temp". Let's see if it happens.

I Could not wait for the barking dogs heralding the start of the show every day. I honestly thought there were several people in the booth the first few times I heard the show. Great job Mr Cannon, and you have been and will be sincerely missed!

In fact, even after driving every day to Duluth and back for an entire year, I hadn't known Morgan Mundane was truly Cannon. Laugh. He was ageless, and you couldn't pin-point to just what genre he would apply. He appealed to most every generation. Such a shame that the program would be taken away. Proof now of just how poorly WCCO rates today. Cannon, may your stars always shine bright, and might you always know that your talent will forever go unsurpassed.

yep he could be rough and even mean but he was true blue MN nice. Like it or lump it. I listened to him for all 26 yrs. I used to like it when he'd say the "slippery skid stuff" when the roads were getting bad. Thanks for the memories SteveO.

Morgan Mundane was the character that had me fooled. I always thought it wasn't Steve. Morgan was an absolutely amazing sports prognosticator. Amazing predictions. Apparently Mr. Cannon knew his sports very well.
