The Polka Pontoon  (album)  PP5035

Genre: Polka/Comedy
Released: September 21, 2014

The Polka Pontoon takes a lighthearted, satirical jab at polka music through the bumbling operation of a fictional, hometown radio station. It's a polka album, but the music is presented in the form of a one-hour polka radio show with commercials, news, and special segments. The show is laced with technical difficulties, inept announcing, and inside jokes.
