Heidi-Ho's Little Place
So who's that grrl with the shaved head mentioned in the song, Little Plastic Castle?..the one and only
fucking cutest Heidi Kunkel.
So, i have tons to add, since it's been a while so let's start here..
for those of you NOT familiar with Dan Bern, GET FAMILIAR! He's a great guy with a great sense
of humour and 2 stellar albums out! His new album FIFTY EGGS is produced by ms. ani d. and has Heidi singing back-up and playing the toy
piano in "Different Worlds".
so heidi and a friend stopped by the sites one day and had this to say:
"get a life!!!! just kidding...thanks for the free entertainment. By the way...some of the words are wayyyyy wrong
to "Fuel"....but nice try! TTFN! (ta ta for now)" (and yes, all was in good jest)
Just some miscellaneous stuffers...heidi is a real candle freak (and apparently makes some great
ones!)....Heidi was hit hard during an ice storm but refused to stay at other's homes while her heat
was non existant...she rufffed it!!...She lives in VT, btw, a resident since she moves there for uni...
LITTLE PLASTIC CASTLE is dedicated to Heidi-Ho and she even had the pleasure of naming the
song (and, inadvertantly, the album!) (and, yes, even SHE was a lil' bummed about the lyric change!)
How did she get this job?
way back in the day, heidi was one of the many people
who followed the folk singer around from venue
to venue. One day, they started selling merchandise, and
heidi volunteered or just started helping out one day when
they were packed, and after that she just kept doing it
whenever she was at a show. Eventually she said "hey, why
don't you guys just hire me to do this" and so rbr said
"send us a resume", so she did, and she got hired full time,
left school for a bit and has been touring with the DiFranco
family circus for a while now.
Since this time, Heidi has become a favourite and i swear
could have an underground fan club...(hmm...website..).

Lil Road Stories
Please take no offence, these are written quite light heartedly!(;
From:a nameless circus freak
"During the show she pretty much wanders
around looking for trouble. You'd never now it but Heidi can put away the
desserts - big-time metabolism goin' on in that girl. Gave me a
jumping-up-in-the-air hug last time I saw her that knocked the keyring
out of my pocket, hell, almost knocked me on my ass she did. Yep - whole
lotta woman goin' on there!"
(NOTE: it is a joke..laugh..hehe..)
if you spot the darling Heidi at any show, don't feel shy, the girl's
one of the sweetest to come by (although there's stiff competition with the departed Sara Lee)
people one could come by. And is known to answer almost anything...ALMOST anything!
