Oral History Information
Chuck Dadisman grew up on a farm and went to school to become a school music teacher, which he did for five years before moving to Omaha, NE, where he worked in piano and organ retail. It was at that store that he met one of the mentors in his life, Dick Carlson. Dick was the road rep for Wurlitzer at the time and took Chuck under his wing. In fact, Dick helped Chuck land his next job within the industry, which was as Educational Director for Wurlitzer, where he sold piano labs. He worked in wholesale with Wurlitzer before joining Yamaha in 1982 and stayed with that company until his retirement in 2010. He has had a long and enjoyable career in the music industry.
