Polka News Network: Bev Rambough abdicates

A dark day for Polka in Minnesota: their local Polka Queen, Bev Rambough.

She's quitting her cable polka show to build a comedy career, but she's left disappointed people behind:

"I've gone to polka events with her, and she's a rock star to all the octogenarians," said Rambough's lifelong friend Dina Rogalla. "I went to the Medina Ballroom with her once, and she was rushed -- by elderly people with walkers. They come up to her and want to touch her, pet her. They love her so much. She's got stalkers."

The Grammy committee will tell you nobody loves polka. They don't know.
