Keep Polkas Alive on WMUA
On January 10th, 2016 it was announced by the WMUA Station Programmer that the WMUA Polka Weekend Block has been reduced from 12 hrs. (6 on Saturday and 6 on Sunday) to 4 hrs. on Sunday only.
have been a staple on WMUA since 1979 and for many years have been
heard for 12-13 hrs. each and every weekend 52 weeks a year. In the 36
years polkas have been on the airwaves, their shows have raised nearly a half a million dollars
from polka supporters. Now, a month and a half after having the
station's annual fundraiser (of which the polka shows raised $24,000 in
20 hours). Station management wants to reduce 12hrs. of polka
programming to 4hrs. This is a disgrace to the Polish Community who has supported this station for all these years.
By signing this petition, I am demanding the return of all 4 polka shows and their hosts returned to their regularly scheduled 12 hr. weekend block.
This online petition will be passed on to University administration so please fill out your name, location, email address and how you listen (FM radio dial or internet feed).
