POLISH MELODIES

Sunday, 10-11 AM

The ever-lovin Ed Henry brings you an hour of Polish  music, enthusiastically chosen by your polish host himself, with a lot of fun thrown in.  Sometimes there's a contest, sometimes there are prizes, but there's always lots of music, lots of chat and lots of laughs.

Ed Henry has been on air for years, broadcasting Polish Melodies from WLIS/WMRD since 1950, back when the station was located on Main Street in Middletown.  Radio has changed a lot over the years, but his view of people has not; "People are People, and I love people" he declares  (Barbra Streisand would love him!).

Ed's in radio for the love of it, not for the money.  He's supported his wife and raised three children by working as a machinist at Standard Knapp.  He may have been retired for the past many years, but he's retired with an attitude - a great one!

"I'm healthy, all I take is Centrum Silver, I gave up both cigarettes and, later, cigars, and now I live by the watchword 'moderation', as long as I have fun.  I have lots of fun on the radio; the only problem is, I want everyone to like me!  But, a wise man once told me that as long as I please half of the people, I'm doing great!  Not everyone is  honest, except my wife - she's my biggest critic!  You know, a few years ago, we had a big party to celebrate my being on air for 50 years.  All these people came, paying $27.50 each!  I couldn't believe it!  Then, I celebrated 50 years being married to the same woman, my beautiful wife Jean Marie. I wanted to have another big party for that, too, but she didn't want to!  I was disappointed, although it would have been pretty expensive, since I would have had to pay this time!  Instead, we just got together with the family; after all, those are the people I love the most."

As you can tell, Ed's got  plenty of personality, making him a perfect  WLIS/WMRD host.  His  personality  shines on air as he has fun with his music and his listeners.  After all, as he always says, "we're the only radio show broadcast live and in color!"
