Grammy Awards Board KILLS Polka Category To Stay 'Relevant'!!

This is an outrage! While I do not go to a lot of polka hangouts, I do polka at family weddings and anniversaries because that is what we do here on the Canadian prairies.

The Board of Directors of the Grammy Awards have unilaterally decided that Polka Music is no longer relevant thereby dropping the category for its usual annual award!

Think of the Schmenges!!

CBC News

Progressive Bloggers

Video of Walter Ostanek live in Regina, Saskatchewan with the Western Senators courtesy the WOstanek YouTube Channel .... (Walter Ostanek has won the Best Polka Album of the Year Award Grammy 3 times!!)

That category for an award has seen its day. So have the carpet beater, the Sinatra-swooning bobbysoxer, typewriter, and car engine crank.

O tempora! O mores!

A sad day indeed. At many a social here in Manitoba I have been known to do a mean (usually drunken) strut to the "Bird Dance". Wonder if it's not a Grammy category anymore if Polka's will continue to be played with such abandon here on the Prairies?

As for the Grammy Award's themselves & relevance - isn't that an oxymoron?

Polka Rocks!!!


Maybe this will bring a revival. Like... rap polka! hiphop polka!

LOL - Huffb1 knows what I'm talking about!!!
Oemissions ... polka rap may have potential!!
