About

On the air since the beginning of June 1995, Czech Melody Time features Texas polka, waltz and march music as represented by the music performed and recorded by various orchestras of Texas-Czech, German and Polish origin, both past and present. As such, the program focuses on both the contemporary polka circuit in Texas while simultaneously presenting a historical perspective on the important cultural and musical legacy upon which the modern scene is based. In addition, there is a "calendar" which features announcements about upcoming polka-related events (dances, church picnics and festivals featuring Texas-Czech and German music and culture in Texas, stressing events in and around central Texas). There is also a short Czech lesson, and sometimes live music in the studio, or a live interview guest. The show has been met with enthusiasm and excitement, particularly by Czechs in Austin and members of the several Czech heritage groups in Travis and Williamson counties, as well as by other people who have come to learn about this important Texas music who had previously never heard of it before.
