Ahhh...makes me nostalgic for my home state.  Which doesn't happen all that often.

Ignore Function, where you from?  My wife's from Southern IN, close to Kentucky, and went to IU.
Oh, good heavens. I didn’t realize. I send my condolences out to the rest of the O’Connor family.

I've been psyched on those Jack Hoppes tracks for a while now.

Hey fellow/former Hoosiers. I'm grew up in southern Indiana (in the Louisville area), then gradually migrated north. If anyone is interested there's a great site that's documenting Bloomington/Indianapolis/Muncie/IU etc. music history. It's http://www.musicalfamilytree.net/. Some of it is great, some not so great. If you were in the area some of it might be familiar.

I grew up two counties over in Floyd County, right on the river. I once got horribly lost in a snowstorm looking for a German restaurant in Jasper, but I think that's the extent of my DuBois county experience.

Was it the Schnitzelbonk?  I go to that place at least once a year.  The world's grossest salad bar!  But most of the rest of the food is actually pretty good.  I have a poster from it that looks like the sort of thing that would be hanging in WFMU's offices, but I can't hang it up in our regular grown-up home.

Exactly!!! That's funny you mention the salad bar. I looked up their website and it says "Our salad bar is known as the "Wunderbar"" Maybe something was lost in translation...

Hilarious.  Maybe we could start a Schnitzelbonk FOT meetup.  Ja das ist ein Schnitzelbonk!

To be fair, the salad bar is fairly typical of the rural Midwest - they looooove their mayonnaise.
