Editor's note: ah- Polish music that is not polka! Well, much of what's on here falls into the traditional genre and a few pieces border on classical and folk but no polka! That's what matters most here, at least to me it does!
I came across this record on a few blogs and managed to track down some audio from WFMU's site. I would love to hear more from this honky-tonkin' caterwaulin' queen. Listen to the tracks below and I think you will too!
