DJ Profile: Billy Belina
Since 2005, Billy Belina has been hosting The Polka Vinyl Show and Breakfast with BB on polkajammernetwork.org. Billy broadcasts his shows out of Chicopee, Mass., and also has experience playing in polka bands. I was able to learn more about Mr. Belina.
TPN: How did you get started in polka deejaying?
BB: I got a job at the University of Massachusetts (Amherst) and decided to check out the campus FM radio station, after the other NPR station refused to give me a polka show. I ended up getting a one-hour show on a Wednesday morning from 11 am to noon on WMUA FM. It was an instant hit and I was given five hours on a Saturday morning. I then started broadcasting online in 2005.
