Vicnaja Pamjat to Polka Hero Myron Floren
- You either loved him or hated him.
Myron Floren was considered by many to be the Pat Boone of
Eastern European music. Many felt that he sold out when he
joined with Lawrence Welk and Americanized accordion music
and Polka to the American TV public.
Others considered him as an equal to Frankie Yankovic and
America's Polka Hero.
Myron died at age 85 last week.
I'm interested to know what the Slovak-World members thought
