    I was truly expecting this. Ska had made a comeback. Swing music had made a comeback. Country music and Klezmer were making a comeback. Polka had Brave Combo. What happened?

    It will happen, Dorothy. One day Polka will be the music of skate punks and computer geeks.

    Then there will be a Gap commercial and it will be all over. Nothing survives a Gap commercial.

    And the Happy Schnapps Combo. Honestly, it’s possible that polka made a spectacular comeback while none of us were paying attention, hung around for a few years waiting for its audience to materialize, and left disappointed.

    Well, conjunto made a comeback, and that’s Tex-Mex crypto-polka.

    I’ve not only heard of Brave Combo, I’ve heard them, and maybe not only on the Prairie Home Companion. I like just about any music (except a lot of country) for which I can understand the words.
