Fourth Of July!
Happy Fourth Of July! Well kind of. On this episode of the podcast we find out that Istvan is not a fan of the holiday because, like so many of us, the loud fireworks scare his dog. But we still celebrate with a barbeque and a surprise visit from our old friend Gramps. We also hear the kids from Palatine on the show and give shout outs to all the towns Istvan has played so far this summer. So thanks for dropping by for our funky 4th of July show.
