Coming in November: It's a salute to veterans! And the story of one polka musician who took his trumpet with him on the USS Intrepid. The story comes from a new book - Veterans Voices and Home Front Memories by Elaine Thomas. Find out how this book came about and how to order a copy. Gary's column features a salute to the American Legion. Theresa pays tribute to her dad's WWII service. A former Hi-Topper takes a trip down memory lane. Justin Everett reviews a gospel CD by D'Vine Testament, profiles DJ Alfred Vrazel, and features teen polka idol Josef Slovak. We remember Allen Pollard, musician, DJ, and long-time advertiser in Texas Polka News. Of course, we have your listing of dances, festivals, live music events, and church picnics.
