Requests & Dedications

Guidelines For Making Requests and Dedications To Our Shows

Our programs on the Polka Jammer Network gladly accept requests and dedications.
We encourage our listeners to submit requests for their favorite songs.

When making requests and dedications to an IJ, please give the following information:

For Requests:

Song
Artist (Band)
Your Name
City/State you’re from

If you’re making a request or dedication to a syndicated network show such as “It’s Polka Time!” with Craig Ebel, please give the call name of the radio station you’re listening to, so that you may receive proper credit on the air. (in this case, tell Craig that you listened to his show on The Polka Jammer Network)  Craig’s show is syndicated on 24 radio stations including Polka Jammer Network; he needs to keep track of where his listeners are tuning in from.

For Dedications:

If for a birthday, anniversary, etc…. please specify the date of the event.

We encourage you to e-mail our show hosts and let them know thay you are listening to their shows. We understand that many of our listeners don’t use e-mail and prefer to listen instead. However, our hosts have no idea if anybody is listening to their shows, so taking a moment to e-mail our hosts will help us out a lot.

Many (if not all) of our show hosts are in the chat room during our LIVE shows, so please drop in and say “Hi”.

We have been asked about what the submission guidelines are for each show.


“It’s Polka Time!” with Craig Ebel:
E-Mail Address: itspolkatime@hotmail.com

Website: www.itspolkatime.com

This is a syndicated network show that is taped 2 weeks in advance. Shows are taped every other Wednesday, and Polka Jammer Network receives 2 weeks’ worth of shows. Listeners are asked to submit their requests and dedications at least 2 weeks in advance in order that they can be scheduled for air. Also, make sure you tell Craig that you listened to his show on The Polka Jammer Network, so that you can receive proper on-air credit. (Craig’s show is syndicated on a number of radio stations across the United States including The Polka Jammer Network, so please make sure you mention that you heard him on The Polka Jammer Network)

Craig will notify listeners by e-mail as to when their request will air on our network.
