and just what do they have to do with this book?

HELLO/WELCOME MUSIC LOVERS...
Joseph M Lenard got his creative gene from his Fathers side where both his Father and his GrandFather wrote and recorded Polka Music.
This page provides a sample of Thaddeus M Lenard (creator/leader - aka: Ted Lenard Jr) of a THE POLKA KINGS original.

In memory of Ted (Obituary):
Thanks to EBAY and some gracious sellers, I now have copies of the releases again... BACKGROUND (I sent the info below to the Sellers after the Sale and the items successfully delivered and now in my 2,500+ LP's collection)...
Hello, Thank you so much, I received The Polka Kings delivery; I was worried they might get warped during delivery in the Summer heat, but Thankfully they are IN 100% CONDITION.
I want to hear all about how/why you had my Fathers' release.
Yes, that's right, I am Joseph M Lenard, the Son of Thaddeus (Ted) M Lenard (Jr).
After long, drawn out, copyright lawsuits, versus Don Martin who re-released them without having my Fathers' (the official copyright holder) permission (and behind his back), which my Father won the lawsuit and the re-releases had to stop, he was very upset, disillusioned, and tossed all the copies he/we had. I still have a couple of 45RPMs they released, but me and my sister had longed to get copies again.
Why now? I got the creative gene from my Father (and his Father, Thaddeus M Lenard Sr, who also wrote and toured doing Polka Music) and finally, after decades of writing, finally Published/released my first book (Terror Strikes: Coming soon to a City near you!) and the topic of my Father has come up during several Podcasts (see: http://TerrorStrikes.info/interviews) so I dedicated a page to him on my book site - see: http://TerrorStrikes.info/the-polka-kings [this page].
So, now that I have a #1 "Political Thriller" Historical Fiction book (see: http://TerrorStrikes.info/bestseller) and sharing with the World the greatness of THE POLKA KINGS again, I want to have copies again.
Hope you'll fill me in on your how/why - via: email@example.com
[stay tuned to this page, I hope the Ebay Sellers will indeed reach out to me, and I can/will share their stories with you to continue this saga]
