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:

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.

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