A Bit O' Nepotism Never Hurt Nobody

Posted By on Mon, May 28, 2007 at 4:07 PM

I'm gonna get this out of the way now, and then we can all go back to work like nothing ever happened. Here we go.

For those of you who are unaware, I come from an exceedingly musical family. If there were a competition for musical families in Burlington, we'd be right up there with the Cleary family — that is, if they'd stop popping out babies every nine months. 

Anyway, from time to time, I'll be mentioning my siblings musical endeavors. But I promise to do so only when it's relevant and/or really freakin' cool. Here's one of the latter:

I just received a missive from my younger, vastly more-talented sister Ariel, who informed me that she and her musical partner-in-crime, Rachel Ries, were recently interviewed and performed on Minnesota Public Radio. While that alone is pretty nifty, what's even better is that the interviewer was none other Jim Ed Poole, better known as the sound effects guy on Prairie Home Companion.

Check it out here.

Ok Ari.  You've used up the Bolles' family nepotism quota for the month. You're welcome.
