I have a client in St Charles and I'm producing a voiceover for a video clip.

Can you tell me how you pronounce "Droste" Road?

Like "frost" or "frostie"?

This.

It's also Youngs Station (Jungs Station) and Younger-men (Jungermann), for the record.

Those pronunciations qualify as the "Secret Handshake" for St. Louisans.

"Zumbehl" and "Bellefontaine" also cause some people to scratch their heads.
