The year was 1959, and Bobby Vee and the Shadows had just released their first single, “Suzie Baby.” Behind the drum set sat one teenage Bob Korum of Fargo, North Dakota. Today, Korum has returned to his hometown and recently had his condo shown on the HBA’s Remodeled Home Tour.

The 8 Phase Remodel

Korum left to tour with Bobby Vee and the Shadows in 1959. “We did the Dick Clarke road shows from 1959 to 1963. We were with the major label, Liberty Records, which was one of the top three in that era,” he said. The band traveled all over the country. After years of touring, Korum began a career in media. Later in life, he returned to Fargo to be closer to friends and of course, the lakes.

Korum moved into his condo in 2002. “It was exactly what I wanted,” said Korum. However, the condo needed updates. The eight-phase remodel began in April 2016 and was completed in July 2017 with the help of Mark Jensen, a consultant at Floor to Ceiling Carpet One Floor & Home. Then in September 2017, the condo was one of the stops on the HBA’s Remodeled Home Tour.
