Thread Name: Origins: Clarinet Polka
Subject: RE: Origins: Clarinet Polka
That's the folk music of my youth -- I grew up in Milwaukee in the '50s. My dad played clarinet (and sax) with a couple dance bands (Frankie Dessel and His Melodeons and others) in north central Wisconsin in the '40s. The first title I knew of anything Dad played was the Clarinet Polka -- next was Lichtensteiner Polka.
