Over the years I’ve been blessed with many friends and supporters. As a tribute, and to show my thanks, we’ve added a new section to our website entitled, “Friends”.
One of my dearest friends was “America’s Polka King”, Frankie Yankovic. At an early age I wanted to become just like Frank. He was afterall the superstar of in the Cleveland-Style polka world that I wanted so much to be a part of . As luck would have it, our friendship grew into a very special relationship. Imagine your idol becoming your mentor and friend. Well that’s how it was for me and Frankie.
It’s been 10 years since Frank passed away in 2008. I think about him a lot, especially when I’m in the Cleveland area.
I hope you’ll enjoy my special tribute to my special freind, Frankie Yankovic.
