  • Bill Parker began volunteering for FPR's organization, MIGIZI Communications in late 1978. He came to the Indian community looking for organizations to volunteer for and someone directed him to us. He plowed right in, doing things like carrying sacks of potatoes for a community feast or quietly standing in the back of the room, ready to help. When he found out we would be training college students from the Journalism school at the University of Minnesota in radio skills, Bill said he could teach voice for radio.

    1. Spice Boys – Glade (PNKSLM, Rock)

    Spice Boys are the Swedish response to America's psych-punk boom of the last decade. Sure there are plenty of punk songs about not being social, but "I Don't Get Around" actually revels in it. After all, there doesn't seem to be much use in going out when you're a competent enough punk group to stick to the tried and true 2-minute-song formula on "Fuk Lov." RIYL: Makthaverskan, Thee Oh Sees, iceage
