Pat, who is going on 107 years old, says she was surprised that her difficulty breathing was caused by a heart problem, not her lungs.
Bill Bulinski was born in Chicago and his family moved to Ely early in his life. At 13 he placed an ad in the paper that initiated the formation of The Electras, a band that spent time on Columbia Records, and is credited as one of the precursors to punk rock. Then came The Greaseballs, a band that feaured Bulinski’s surf style guitar on their instrumental tracks. Bulinski, though, is adept at many styles of guitar. Lately he’s been a Boundary Waters Boy backing up Pat Surface. And has also released a record called “Bare Naked Guitar,” which is just what sounds like. Bill recently spoke with Charlie Pulkabek. We also hear music from Roma Di Luna, The Bad Companions, and Ian Thomas Alexy.
