You would think that polka music would be out of place in an Italian household. But not ours. It was one of the dances my parents loved to do and one I would even attempt at the right wedding. It was the music my grandmother and one of her sisters loved to play on the organ. And this kind of polka has Cleveland written all over it. So get ready for some beer drinking and skirt twirling with Volume 70: 7 Decades of the Polka King.
