I'll never forget  the day that John Stanky made me an honorary Coalminer!

It was a radio remote, I wanna say we were in Nannycoke? Town festival thing going on and Stanky was appearing there that day. Well he had his accordion on hand and psst, little-known fact, I am an accordion virtuoso (don't make me play) so out came the squeezebox and faster than you can say E-I-E-I-E-I-O, there I was toolin' away on Stanky's axe!

Oh yeah, I've played accordion since the '60's. Ever heard of the Polka JAKS? (No? Shut up.) Well the J stood for yours truly. That is, John. The A was for Allen, the K for Kenny and...uh...anyway...I'm rambling.

Suffice it to say there does exist somewhere on Youtube a video of this dynamic moment in musical history, the day John Stanky made me an honorary Coalminer!
