Myron Floren

Today remains Saturday, 28 July 2007.

A friend seems to have dissed the profession of accordianship, and Myron Floren in particular.

I particularly take umbrage, given the recent dedication of the Myron Floren West Wing of Accordianionship at The Museum of the Bourgeois.

Free admission on Polka Nights every Thursday.

Herewith, the first time the immortal appeared on The Lawrence Welk Show:

A misguided soul posted a comment about Myron, and all I can say is:

Thank you boys-a. Now what am I gonna do with all of these frickin champagne bubbles?

Alternate entry to the Devil's Dictionary provided by the late Theo Nix, Ph.D., Chair of the Fine Arts Department at Northeastern State College:

accordion n.
A parlor instrument played by depressing its keys and the spirits of the listeners.

HH -

Your "friend" RTR is, obviously, a musical snob. It is his loss. I say, move on HH, ignoring his taunting, and continue to appreciate all that is eclectic.

The surface of a puddle is "obviously" wet. Pronouncing its depth without taking the opportunity to make a measurement might create the circumstance that created discomfort to Dr. Foster on his trip to Gloucester.

What would not be so obvious would be my enthusiastic participation in a Polka ensemble that has performed at Oktoberfest celebrations and such. As a resident of Wisconsin, I feel somewhat enabled to make remarks about the grand folk tradition of polka as well as making reference to cheese.

I believe that during our long-standing friend-ship, HH has developed some familiarity with both my musical tastes and sense of irony as I have with his.
