Melanie Oesch will be giving her first American Radio interview to Bob and it should be very interesting.

The winning song was Ku-Ku Jodel and many Milwaukee listeners have heard it on Continental Showcase. Click on the YouTube clip below to hear what their winning song sounded like on the Krone der Volksmusik.
