After two years on the Polka Jammer Network, the partners of the Happy Tappy Polka Show, Andrew Krystopolski, Chris Valcik and Stan Wilgocki, who have been with the show since its inception, have chosen to disband the show. Stan and Andrew decided to leave the Happy Tappy group after the live “Pancakes, Piwos and Polkas” Polka Jammer Network fundraising broadcast from Mark’s Bar & Grill in Rotterdam, NY on May 19th. The show had aired on Friday nights in the 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. EST time slot.
Although there has been publicity circulating that a new show titled “Party Time Polkas”, hosted by Stan and Andrew, would be joining the PJN schedule, the Polka Jammer Network Board of Directors voted yesterday to not pick up the show due to recurring personal conflicts. At no time will we accept any behavior that is targeted at another IJ, musician, polka event or our listening audience. Past PJN IJ’s who have felt the need to air their grievances or make derogatory remarks against other parties publicly, be it on the air, by email, Facebook, etc. are no longer with the network.
The Polka Jammer Network strives for the highest professional standards, as well as integrity in our offerings and our IJ’s. We will continue to provide our loyal listeners with quality polka entertainment of the highest integrity.
Stay tuned for new IJ’s and new programming coming to the Polka Jammer Network in the near future!
