Letter to the editor: Thanks for the memories
April 1, 2022
I greatly appreciated Steve Korby's article on Dickie Eklund and Ray Poirier. I didn't know Dickie well, but I remember him riding his bike with Ray. My band was not a polka band, but we did do "Just Because" and the "Tick Tock Polka" for Ray to sing. His timing was impeccable.
Len was a saint. He sometimes would hire Frankie Yankovic to play at the Elmwood as a special treat for his customers. Frankie was a saint also. Ray gave me one of the cards Frankie had printed just for him. Ray was very proud of it.
