It's over 50 years since Ken Griffin passed away. Half a century on, his music continues to entertain. He was a successful musician in skating rinks across the United States and recorded in excess of 20 albums. While his career was brief and his life ended far too young, Ken has left behind a legacy of fine music and an organ sound that will forever be known as the 'Griffin Sound'. He recorded a slew of albums, mostly for Columbia and had Top 40 pop hits including the three million selling Cuckoo Waltz.
