Bobby Aro certainly knew how to put on a show, and that’s just what he did for decades entertaining people throughout the country with his “Finn-glish” songs, stories, and jokes. He came to fame with his northern Minnesota radio shows, recorded popular records like “Highway No. 7,” and developed an enormous and loyal group of fans before his death in 1996.
