30 Hmongs in a house....some of that real Minnesota Nice brought to you by KDWB!
A song parody that recently aired on KDWB's Dave Ryan in the Morning Show has created a bit of a stir.....to the tune of Eric Clapton's "Tears in Heaven." Take a listen to what's under the table at the real 'Minnesota Nice'.
During the station's morning show last week, listeners were asked to send in title suggestions for a song that the show's personalities would have less than an hour to write. Steve "Steve-O" LaTart, the show's producer, said a Hmong listener texted in the titled "30 Hmongs in a House" and LaTart proceeded to pen words set to Eric Clapton's "Tears in Heaven." In his parody, LaTart sang about how Hmongs live like "sardines" with no room for a couch because they sleep on the floor. He also made reference to Hmong women getting pregnant by 16 with "seven kids by 23" and "over the hill by 30."
By Wednesday morning, the show's Facebook page was filled with comments about the song, including those who found it offensive.
