Mid-Michigan: Newsmakers Dec. 7, 2009




Jackson Citizen-Patriot:

The last waltz is coming soon for a Jackson radio institution, Joseph "Polka Joe" Pancerz. Polka Joe's last show will be Dec. 27 on WIBM, 1450 AM, ending 44 years as Sunday-morning host of "Polka Time." "Forty-four years is enough," said Pancerz, 83. "What are you going to do? You get old." Pancerz is enshrined in the Michigan Polka Hall of Fame. He has been recognized by Michigan governors, starting with William G. Milliken in 1973. Jackson declared a day in his honor 25 years ago. He has been toasted and roasted and is a fixture at Polish-flavored festivals and events. But those honors just scratch the surface... 'Polka Joe' ending his career as Jackson radio personality (Sat, 12/5)
