In the tradition of Pic-a-Polka on Channel 2 in the 1950s and 1960s, Polka Saturday Night streamed into Buffalo homes on Jones, International and Niagara Frontier cable systems 30 years ago this week.
Host Big Steve led the show and the band from the Executive Inn in Cheektowaga. Those who loved the show and loved the music likened it all to MTV.
"Polka’s back — and on the tube"
“Just like teenagers watch their music on TV, this is our show. Who needs aerobics, exercise, to rock music? We just polka.”
