    Can’t wait to hear you speak with David Bellamy. My husband and I see them at Medina each year. I read that the Bellamy Brothers debuted in 1968. I was born in March 1968 so we will be celebrating 50 years together this year. Please say hi from Carolyn!

    Hello!

    Thanks for playing great country music! I was just listening in on the way home, and you guys were talking about how to say “Bde Maka Ska,” formerly known as lake Calhoun. You both said you were confused on why the name was changed and how to say it.

    Check out https://www.mprnews.org/story/2015/10/14/bdemakaska-lake-calhoun

    In summary the article says:
    “The lake was named after John Caldwell Calhoun, a South Carolina statesman, former vice president, senator, secretary of state and proponent of slavery. He is infamously known for preaching slavery as ‘a positive good’ in the 1800s.”

    There’s also an audio clip of how to pronounce the new name in the article.
