2019 Musical Guest: 

Actual Wolf is the alter ego of Grand Rapids Minnesota native, Eric Pollard. Currently residing in Duluth, he writes/records his music and has released six records since 2013. His current release, Faded Days, is available on renowned Minnesota label, Red House Records

Actual Wolf is a strong supporter of northern Minnesota and believes that if we work together, as Minnesotans, we can accomplish anything. 

A true sauna veteran, Actual Wolf feels strongly about the earned right of the water bucket/sauna temperature being 190-215 degrees. He eats walleye, crappie, lake trout, and the occasional perch. He also believes modesty is the best policy when selecting the perfect donut. 

He is a fan of Duluth Coffee Company and chocolate covered cake donuts aka The Lutheran Mocha. A lover of KAXE and Aaron Brown, Actual Wolf is always ready to tell you whose side he’s on
