Sebak Slated to enhanceStockdaledance Series


Paglia, Ron, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review


The past will meet the present when another in a series of popular All Oldies, Only Oldies dances (record hops) is presented Saturday, April 6 at the Stockdale Volunteer Fire Department's social center and banquet hall.

And the presence of award-winning Americana documentary producer Rick Sebak as a meet-and-greet guest will enhance the event.

"We are very pleased that Rick will be with us," said Al Marcy, assistant fire chief and entertainment chairman of the Stockdale Volunteer Fire Department. "It's fitting that he will be our special guest, because his television documentaries on WQED in Pittsburgh and nationally on PBS focus on various aspects of life and often reflect on our past. The dances at Stockdale attempt to do the same thing - that is, they remind us of special times, people and places in our lives."

The Stockdale Oldies dance, which has become one of the largest and most popular of its kind in western Pennsylvania in recent years, will run from 8 p.m. to midnight.

Ralph Trilli. longtime area disc jockey and co-host with Bill Chappo of the Crusin' Sunday show on WJPA (95.3 FM, 1450 AM, noon to 6 p.m.), will spin the music. Trilli was a longtime associate of the late Jim "J.D. the D.J." Dudas and hosted a memorial tribute to Dudas in October 2011. Some 550 people attended the event to honor the memory and achievements of Dudas, who was the DJ at Stockdale for several years.

"Ralph has a great ear for and knowledge of the music that Oldies afficionados request and appreciate," Marcy said. "He worked with Jim for many years and is helping perpetuate the Mon Valley Memories music with the show on WJPA."

The April 6 event, which is open to the public, again will carry a BYOE (Bring Your Own Everything) format. Patrons are invited to bring their own food and liquid refreshments. The fire department will provide refreshments (not pop).

Admission is $10 per person, and reservations and additional information are available at 724-330-5002. Checks are payable to Stockdale Volunteer Fire Department and should be sent, along with a self-addressed stamped envelope, to Dance, P.O. Box 416, Roscoe, PA 15477. Those ordering tickets are requested to include their name, address, telephone number and email address.

Sebak will make a presentation at the April 6 dance and then be available for autographs and photos.

Sebak has produced, written and narrated 18 individual special programs that make up what is called the Pittsburgh History Series including a very popular program titled "Kennywood Memories" about the venerable amusement park, a show called "Pittsburgh A To Z," and another often- imitated documentary titled "Things That Aren't There Anymore." Several of his shows have featured people and places in the Mon Valley.

In 2003, after the death of Fred Rogers of "Mister Rogers" fame, Sebak rewrote an earlier documentary he had made into a new program titled "Fred Rogers: America's Favorite Neighbor. …
