The first time I heard Topeka Polka was at Weiser, and it was Carol Ann Wheeler playing it. I thought it was dumb, and annoying, and repetitive. At some point, I realized that it was in Bb and I tried to play it, and my perception shifted. It’s really a fun tune to play. So, I don’t think Topeka Polka is dumb anymore. In fact, I think it’s pretty cool. Based on the info I can find, Spade Cooley wrote the tune. Here’s an old Recording of Spade Cooley Playing Topeka Polka
