The Photos of Brian Juntikka

Broadcasting his Polka radio show from 2-4pm on 26 stations across the U.S., Brian  has more Polka history in his head than seems possible and the most complete knowledge of the phone systems of the Keweenaw, that again, more than any one person should hold in one's head and still has room for his many stories of growing up in the South Range/Alantic area, owning a bar in South Range and now living in Forida.

Thank you for all your help over the years Brian and the interesting conversation, always interesting.

Here are some of Brian's photos from 1972, near the end of the Copper Range.

August 1972 at Twin Lakes.  This is engine 101 parked on the mainline. You can tell train isn't moving because headlight is off.
