The Fountain Frolics summer concert series closes with the band "Broad Appeal" July 29 on the Nebraska Union Plaza.

Fountain Frolics concerts are noon to 1 p.m. every Thursday through July 29. UNL's University Program Council sponsors local musical entertainment and sells a picnic lunch of a hot dog, chips and a soda for $4 under the north overhang of the Nebraska Union.

"Broad Appeal" features the trio of Julie Enersen, Anna Hanselmann and Laurie Lessman. The group plays hits from 1935 to 1959, mixing a cappella arrangements and recorded band accompaniments into performances. The music captures the essence of the era through the melodies of "Your Hit Parade," the popular show that brought the week's top songs to audiences gathered around radios and televisions. "Broad Appeal" performances also provide the stories behind the songs. For more information on the group, go to http://www.broadappeal.net.
