Summer in Minnesota, the season when hot dish gives way to salads and "exposed flesh" goes back to being skin. As a kid in the 1960's the last day of school was when gym shoes magically turned into sneakers, school clothes became play clothes and teachers went back to...wherever teachers come from.
Songs like "King of the Road", "Hot Fun in the Summertime", "Hello Muddah" and "Dock of the Bay" dominated the AM transistor airwaves and a new baseball team, The Minnesota Twins, moved to town. There was bar-b-que, swimming lessons, family vacations, camping, riding bikes, carnivals. Then, as now, our state really knew how to do summer.
Please join Kevin Kling, Dan Chouinard and Prudence Johnson for an entertaining evening of stories and songs celebrating a kid's eye view of Minnesota in the 1960's.
