I've had a hard time explaining to my non-FMU listening friends (that's basically all of them) that a polka show is a great way to launch a weekend.

Hello Stashu and others! Debbie Harry was born a poor orphan child in Miami, Florida but was adopted by a couple in Hawthorne, New Jersey. She was also a go-go dancer at a club in Union City, New Jersey.

Oh boy!

and everyone is amazed i haven't heard some top 20 song or other

wow she was really born an orphan?

I have a hard time getting my mom to listen, even though she's mostly Polish. My dad's name was Stanley, and was Stashu when he was around the Polish relatives, so she gets confused by a female Stashu

My mother in law glued herself to the TV when Welk was on. I kinda dug Myron Floren.

Tried to give our youngest son Stanley as a middle name but the fine folks in Maryland's records department thought that spelling it Stanely on his birth certificate was betterer

The original folk song of Green Grass was where the term gringo came from. Mexicans would hear Americanos singing the song, and thought they were saying gringo, and started to refer to them as such....

  Fri. 11/2/18 6:42pm P-90:

@Carmichael: DJ Stashu has never played the Schmenges, has never mentioned the Schmenges, does not respond to comments about The Schmenges. I think it might be because they are not “pure” enough...

@P-90, it was kind of a joke question, but kinda not. I enjoy parodies of all kinds, since they're based in a tribute of sorts.

  Fri. 11/2/18 6:50pm P-90:

@Carmichael: sure, but I have found Stashu’s determined avoidance of acknowledging anything Schmenge-related to be notable. I can’t resist a mystery I guess...

I also have heard that she's been doing musicals lately.

@ Krys O.: wow! i had no idea that WLIB had Polish programming!
we listened to "Happy Bernie's Polka Party" on WCTC (FM, i think!), based in New Brunswick, NJ
on Sundays afternoons -- a good two if not three or four hours of PURE POLKA MUSIC!
it came right after "The Hungarian Radio Hour" . . . and yup, even as a kid, i noticed how even the "happy" Hungarian songs were sooooo DEPRESSING, hah!

Molly Ringwald's dad was a Dixieland Jazz legend. He had a great band that played all the pizza places regularly. There were probably 8 banjo players in that band.

Besides their two (!) polka shows, WVKR at Vassar College up here has a Polish language show early Saturday mornings. At least I think they still air it.
