Pioneer Valley Soundscapes

The staff and students at Amherst College:

Professor Jason Robinson for your suggestions and guidance; Mrs. Ann Maggs for supplying us with great information and helping us see that the polka culture was not only an interesting subject but a tremendously fun subject as well; Peter Marvin, John Kunhardt, Dave Moran, Josh Baum, and Marcus DeMaio at Academic Technology Services for answering all of our technology questions and being so accommodating when it came time to check out equipment; our fellow Pioneer Valley Soundscapes classmates for all the feedback you gave us along the way; the select students at Hampshire College for allowing us to use your cars week after week!

The people at WMUA:

Mr. Billy Belina for starting the program all those years ago and supplying the Valley and the world with such great music; Mr. Mitch Moskal for taking the time to stay after your show to answer all of our questions; Mr. Todd Zaganiacz for responding to our initial contact with the studio and for inviting us into the station; Mrs. Helen Szubzda-Curtin for being so welcoming and agreeing to participate in our project.

Finally, it goes without saying that many, many thank you's go out to all of the wonderful DJs, staff, members, and listeners at WMUA: it is your hard work and dedication that helps spread the message of the music to everyone!
