Next week Radio Rumpus Room salutes the collapsed U.S. auto industry in Bankrupt! Hot Rods To Hell 2009. Join us for an unabashedly nostalgic look at the Glory Days of GM and Chrysler, when the brands Chevrolet, Cadillac, Buick, Olds, Pontiac, Chrysler, Dodge and Plymouth meant more than mere lines on corporate bankruptcy forms.
Memories of Nisswa-Stämman, as the Scandinavian music festival among the pines in the Brainerd Lakes area heads into its tenth year.

Summer is here at last…..or as some of my northern friends say, green winter. Danish Day was a success again, Sula (DK) is travelling around (click on the nisswa link then click again on Sula to get their schedule), Kristian Mette will arrive and perform live again for us and so it goes. Next up after Nisswa will be Midsommar at the American Swedish Institute. FMI go to: www.americanswedishinst.org
