Enjoy your day, Ronnie Steffen, an 86-year-old Edina man who is a Marine.
The amazing Boyd Huppert found him at the Cub Foods store in Edina where he started a tradition several years ago. After he’s finished paying for groceries, he becomes the crooner at Cub.
Ann Laurice, who checks out his groceries, posts videos of Ronnie’s performances, for which some people drive miles to witness every Saturday night, Huppert reports.
About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
