'I'm a lifelong professions musician who has sung and played Redd Stewart compositions countless times over the years. I do have a story to share with you.
One night many years ago around Christmas time, I was driving through the town of Findlay, Ohio, looking for an address. It was a dark and stormy night (really!), and I was unable to find the address I sought. Finally, I stopped in front of a small hotel on the main street of the town, and went into the lobby to ask for directions.
From the lobby I could hear faint music coming from the lounge. It sounded like an accordion was playing. You know the rest! I went in, sat down, and didn't get up again until the place closed. What they were doing there in that little town I don't remember. It seems to me now, maybe they knew the hotel owner.
I'll never forget discovering Redd Stewart & Pee Wee King in that little Ohio town in the middle of a long ago winter! Now, I have told that story hundreds of times over the years, but I never thought I would tell it to the members of Redd Stewart's family!!' (Charley Groth (Professional Musician)/FL)
