That's probably due to the fame from the "Mollie B Polka Party" TV show. It aired for many years on the RFD TV cable channel here in the States, and is still on in re-runs at least weekly. I get the impression that their band was already pretty popular on the polka circuit, but the TV show really brought them to the attention of a larger audience.

Although I gotta admit, when I hear the name "Ted Lange", I can't help but first think of this guy:

The Love Boat bartender... yeah, I had that thought too... haha!!
I didn't know about their notoriety, it does explain a lot. :)

Tom,
I like the energy and drive of the Polka. The accordion is well suited for playing it and so many other dances, such as our 'barn dances' are obviously based on it. Thanks for the post. It's good for the accordion image.
