Basia Szydlowski, President of the Polish American Museum continues her sterling work as radio personality, garnering great reviews for her efforts in keeping alive Polish folk music on 88.7 FM every Sunday. She also finds the time to host the community affairs program every Monday at 6pm on the Hofstra University Radio station. This show has also won two FOLIO awards within the past five years.
