THE SHOW

During the 50’s and 60’s there could be dozens of accordion schools in any city. Accordion sales were booming and a young accordionist named Dick Contino thrilled audiences as he repeatedly won a weekly television talent contest. He was a big and popular as any of today’s idols. I wonder if any of the Frankie Salivari’s of that period had any idea that most of the instruments they peddled would be quietly hidden in back room closets today. – Rudy Bernick, Playwright
