(One of many old 78s in my collection. Dates are approximated as best as possible based on the labels and what information I can find on the ‘net. The sound quality on these is quite variable. I’ve cleaned the worst of the pops and skips as best as I can, but these won’t be anywhere near modern fidelity. Enjoy them for what they are.)

    His group played several fast Ukrainian folk dances. like Hopak, I think around 1945 to 1950ish. Do you have a list of his Ukrainian dance tunes? If so please let me know and how can I get a copies. Thanks, regards, Terry Popek

    Hi Terry! Unfortunately, this record (and your comment) are all I know of this artist. Sorry I can’t be of any help!
