Inside The Mind Behind ‘Da Yooper Tourist Trap’
Jim “Hoolie” DeCaire runs ‘Da Yooper Tourist Trap‘ in Ishpeming, and is a member of the comedy band ‘Da Yoopers’. Here is a peek inside Jim’s world.
The band started more than 40 years ago and shed a satirical light on what life is like in the Michigans Upper Penninsula.
Also, the word Yooper has been added to the dictionary, a fact Jim is proud of.
Here is one of the most popular Yooper “Christmas” songs that I remember hearing on the radio as a kid.
