Colorado's very own outright zany and just plain weird torchbearers of the Dead Milkmen school of punk rock, Little Fyodor and Babushka, celebrate their twentieth anniversary as a band this month. Frontman Little Fyodor also celebrates his 25th year as a radio DJ at longstanding public-radio station KGNU, headquartered out of Boulder. Look for a brand-new Little Fyodor & Babushka long-player in the coming months -- but in the meantime, congratulations to Little Fyodor for the anniversaries!
