From the Rocket to the Clownface: Mini Golf in June Melby's "Family and Other Hazards"

What did your childhood summer consist of? Swimming pools, games of frisbee, putt-putt golf? For June Melby, a Decorah resident, it was the latter--and only the latter. 

When she was ten years old, her family bought a miniature golf course in Wisconsin with no employees, no expertise, and no idea of the memories they would create. Host Charity Nebbe talks with Melby about her family and her years growing up on the course. 

Charity Nebbe is the host of IPR's Talk of Iowa
