We’re carrying on the tradition of West Michigan Polka DJs Bob (Jasiu) Whitcomb, Ernie Pickem (Ernie Pierogi) and Jerry Baczewski (Jerry Golombki). Jerry and Ernie
got into Polka Radio at the feet of Grand Rapids’ legendary Polka DJ, the late Bob Whitcomb, and took over for Jasiu when he retired in 1980.

After about 15 years on various other West Michigan radio stations, Jerry and Ernie brought their act to WYGR starting February 29, 1992. Despite the passing of both
Polka DJs (Ernie in February 1998, Jerry in February 1999), WYGR has continued the great Polka Radio tradition.

By the way, Jerry & Ernie’s Polka Pops was dubbed “the nation’s premier Polka show” by a New York writer due to the great variety of musical styles featured: Chicago-style, Cleveland-style and traditional Polkas, your favorite Waltzes and Obereks, and more! Great music from great artists, every weekend on WYGR.

For those who have lost their mother, Mother’s Day can be difficult and brings up a wide range of emotions. We want to take a minute to remember all those wonderful mom’s out there who are no longer with us, but they certainly shaped us into who we are today.

Isaiah 66:13: "As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you."


Share with us a favorite memory of your mom....
