Summerfest Entertainment Director Bob Babisch on the second week of the Big Gig

 After a one day rest on Monday that shuttered the Summerfest grounds, the Big Gig resumed Tuesday.

Entertainment Director Bob Babisch was a special live guest on the CBS 58 News at 4:30 p.m.

\"We've gotten our second wind and are ready to rock,\" he declared.

Babisch is part of a team of four people who work around the year to chart trends in music. 

\"We're keeping track of what's playing on radio here in Milwaukee, what's popular on satellite radio, what people are downloading to come up with the best mix.\"

He feels a responsibility to maintain the atmosphere of a people's festival and encourages folks to to visit and not just listen to their favorites but explore other genres of music they normally don't listen to.
