Polka Parade is the only Polka music radio program that originates from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Now in our 36th year on the radio, Polka Parade keeps the polka musical tradition alive by broadcasting four hours each Saturday over WJYI 1340AM and 98.7 FM with German music from 9-10am, Polish style from 10-11am, Slovenian or Cleveland-style from 11am-1pm, with an added blend of polka styles mixed in from 12-1pm. Along with wonderful advertisers and sponsors, Polka Parade is supported financially by its listening audience, the Polka Parade Pals.
