How’d Ya Do?

How’d Ya Do?

Thanks for the great comments on Saturdays “Jump Around Wisconsin”. I thought it was very cool to turn on the radio at 3 and hear all our stations synced up and playing House Of Pain! People seemed to like it in the Northwoods as I saw a bunch of postings (videos) on Facebook over the…Read more »
