Definitely Not Polka - Polish music & culture
Definitely Not Polka is being billed as “An audio guide to Polish music and culture for the football- oblivious”.
The special English-language radio series will air every Wednesday in June at 4:00pm on FlirtFM 101.3. Each broadcast will be available as a podcast on Mixcloud (see player below) the following Thursday.
Guiding listeners through almost every music genre imaginable will be Galway radio personality Dorota Bencheikh, who has become a familiar voice in the local Polish community as the host of a weekly Polish-language show called Coolturka PL.
Definitely Not Polka is being produced in Galway through a volunteer effort, with prizes donated by local businesses that have Polish connections (such as Sasha Motors, WD Catering, and Tongue Typer Translations) and cultural associations (like the Irish-Polish Society and Come2gether). Among the prizes up for grabs for both live and podcast listeners are Polish dinners for two, official Euro 2012 merchandise, and music CDs.
Between songs Dorota will share fascinating facts, pivotal events, and odd connections... what you don't know about Poland may surprise you! Each episode will be dedicated to one of the Polish cities hosting the European Football Championships and its surrounding region.
The first broadcast is on Wednesday, June 6th @ 4:00pm.
