Remembering Frankie Yankovic

Posted by: | Comments (2)

Hi Everyone,

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.

Walter.
