Leader of the polka pack
Gary Sredzienski, lead squeezer of "extreme polka" band The Serfs and the DJ who puts together "The Polka Party" for the University of New Hampshire's WUNH radio station, sounds like a pretty cool character.
As described by Pitchfork Media, his house sounds like some kind of bizarre accordion-and-kitsch museum, and his habit of scuba diving in frigid New England rivers and creeks sounds just downright bizarre.
His rallying cry -- "Polka music is happy music!" -- is one for the ages. Keep on squeezin', Gary!
