Does this mean no Polka Party Show at 9 AM!?

No Stanky and the Coal Miners, Eddie Blyzonczyk and the Versatones....

I grew up listening to Martin in the Morning, Jim Brando, and Paul Oles.

They can switch their format from "Lite and Lively" to Spanish, but keep the 9 AM Polka Party show!

The Polka Party Show is as Carbondale as Ames, Newberry's and the Carawanna.

If we went to Mexico we would have to speak spanish, if you come here respect our country and speak our language. I agree if you want that music buy a cd. and for Mr. Jose he is ignorant like all the other wet backs.

That Spanish as a learned language is being used as the interface between Caribbean Hispanics and NE Pennsylvanians is phenomenon which certainly be acknowledged--the radio station is good news because who wants to trip or crash during Spanish-language regional flux?(in Bradford, PA)

And bilingual education was a slap upside the head when you accidentally answered a question in your mother tongue. The teacher would say speak English you dumb Hunky

Channel 69 out of Allentown already does the news at 11 PM in Spanish. Outrageous. Everyone should boycott Channel 69 until they get rid of this abomination.

It is crazy that so many people are being racist against hispanics instead of appreciating them for all the hard work that they do. U S A is made of people from all over the world you morons. I,m sure that all those people who talk bad about hispanics are nothing more then racist uneducated people.

Liz, call me a racist I don't care, they still don't belong here unless they came here legally. They're working hard all right ,@ running down the wage structure for jobs that don't require a college education that used to pay decent like construction. They use services that they don't pay for, lowering service and raising taxes for the rest of us. Close the border and throw them out! Illegal is Illegal not undocumented. Although I would like to make an undocumented withdrawal from the bank. Oh wait, that would be Illegal! Speaking of morons, you certainly are uneducated on this subject! It's about the law, and not just the ones that you think(probably feel) should be followed.

I just followed the link to listen. They were playing Air Supply.

If a station plays Polkas, they should be played all Sunday afternoon.

Mike K. who used to host the show on WCDL told me on many ocaisons, "Polka sound better if you are wearing white socks."

I think its about high time that the AMERICAN people stand united again and take out the trash.
(the mexicans and all the communist greedy government officials)
America is the ONLY country that has no fanatical groups to keep the government in check.
thats what they want! CONTROL.
abe lincoln said "every twenty years the people should revolt to cleanse the system of any "life long" politicians".
these political people from the local to the federal positions are to greedy and love to spend our money but refuse to help anyone in need.
they refuse to abide by the oath they took to protect the people; to help the people; to LISTEN to the people;
its high time for the people to act.
for the future of this country and the future of our children and future generations.

filing complaints and petitions has turned out no results. politicians have covered themselves by making laws to protect themselves against any threat of exposure or criminal activity.
immuniy.
the fact that its treason is another story!
