Walter Ostanek is one of the living legends of polka music. The three-time Grammy
winner has been entertaining since his teens. He first achieved notice in the 1950s
as the leader of a young generation of performers inspired by the Cleveland-Style
classics – Frank Yankovic, Johnny Pecon, Johnny Vadnal, Eddie Habat and Kenny Bass.
Walter’s sunny delivery was ideal for television and his popular polka show brought
good-time music into Canadian homes.
Since 2007 polkas.nl has been "on the web". Since it first was launched this web
site has grown to the largest polka web site in the world. It has more than 1,000
web pages containing information about polkas and the musicians that have been so
involved with this style of music. The polkas.nl web site is owned by polka enthusiast
John Hasper, avid collector and promoter of Slovenian and Cleveland-Style polkas.
The site is mainly based on his large polka collection.
