    Schoning, Charlie

    Accordionist, composer, keyboardist and saxophonist who was a member of the instrumental rock group, The Frantics.  His band-mates were bassist Jim Manolides, drummer Don Fulton, guitarist Ron Petersen, and fellow sax man, Bob Hosko.  Jim was later supplanted by Jeno Landis.  The Frantics didn’t have any huge hits, but they did crack the top 100 with “Fog Cutter”, “Straight Flush”, and “Werewolf”.  Charlie penned or co-penned many of their songs, including “Black Sapphire”, “Straight Flush”, and “The Whip”, which you can hear on the compilation, The Complete Frantics on Dolton.  “Straight Flush” also appears on Pittsburgh’s Favorite Oldies:  At the Hop, Vol. 7 and Rock ‘n’ Roll Guitar Classics.  Charlie is credited with piano on Todd Rundgren’s 1972 album, Something/Anything?.
