Eli Bissonett - Production Monkey (he made me type that)

Eli's Bio


My hat collection at the station has grown, making me a jack of much. 


I’m kind of a local boy in Ely, I play fiddle, I life coach, and I’m still hunting Sasquatch after all these years. 


Great to be on board!  Thanks to current leadership WELY has grown impressively, as a local business and a service hub for twelve surrounding zip codes.  Set your radio dial frequently and catch our wave!



Everything you ever wanted to know about Eli...and more
  • I can’t live without… my fiddle and a good woodshed session...also, friends and family are key...what is there to life if we can't share it, right?

  • I give back to my community by… mentoring youth, helping the Ely Jaycees organize community projects, and being musical wallpaper for some very rad seniors

  •  When I’m not at the radio station, I like to… hunt for Sasquatch.

  • My favorite quote/motto is… "Sometimes I helps out, sometimes I sits and thinks, and sometimes I just sits" (Old Finnish Farmer somewhere)

  • Nothing cheers me up faster when I’m a little down than… knowing and trusting that I can make a difference in this world, no matter how seemingly small or insignificant

  • For my last meal, I’d want… Mongolian BBQ, all you can eat...I'm a fast oxidizer

  • The famous person –alive or dead- I would most like to hang out with is… Elon Musk

  • What matters most to me is… each of us doing what we can to take personal responsibility for our choices, how we live our lives, let the future emerge from absorption in the present moment, be concerned with what is most relevant right here and right now.
