00:09:06
Country: 

In the late 1940's and early 1950's polka was the music dominating the airwaves both on radio and the newest technology at the time: television. One of the first live television programs in Green Bay, Wisconsin's history was a polka variety show featuring the group Cousin Fuzzy and his Cousins. One of the last surviving members of the band is Agnes Benz, aka "Cousin Aggie." She was interviewed in 2011 as the beginning of a large documentary on Cousin Fuzzy.
