Welcome to the only "Live" polka video program seen twice a weekend (Saturday evening & Sunday late afternoon) We feature interviews Sundays with some of the finest, most amazing, talented band leaders, musicians &  promoters of all times.  We're here to have fun and we hope you join us! Check out the bottom of this page for our scheduled guests. 
Geri & I really enjoy spending time with all our old friends & new ones as we continue the "craziness" with Polkas After Dark. Did you know we are now broadcasting on YouTube?  Just search Polkas After Dark.  That's where you will see the past and present interviews on Sundays with the greatest people in the industry.
If you would like to be added to our email list (which notifies you of our "Live" broadcasts moments before, send an email to polkasafterdark@gmail.com and simply include your first and last name and let us know where you are watching us from. 
Don't forget to let your friends know we're here on the weekends.  Our "Live Chatrooms" are open during our  broadcasts so you can chat with friends and family all across the U.S. & Canada.  You will probably make some new friends too, along the way.
