We are saddened to learn that 2 of our loyal listeners were killed in an arson fire that occurred this past Saturday in Northampton, MA. The fire claimed the lives of Paul Yeskie Sr., 81, and his son: Paul Yeskie Jr., 39, who was autistic. Both were polka lovers. Paul Jr. frequently attended dances at the PACC Hall in Ludlow, MA. They were both avid listeners of the Jammer, Billy Belina’s “Polka Bandstand” show on WMUA, and Richie Gomulka’s Polka Show on www.wpna1490am.com.
A $5,000 reward is being offered for any tips leading to the arrest of the perpetrators of this incident.
Of behalf of all of us here at the Polka Jammer Network, we offer their family our deepest condolences.
