Taylor Swift Calls Out Celebrity Culture

Posted by Mylor on October 5, 2014

In a recent interview with Canadian magazine, Fashion, Taylor Swift distinguished herself from the mainstream celebrity culture, saying, “Celebrities surround themselves with people who don’t know what they want and only have you to validate their lives – that’s not interesting to me…You’ll never really feel like you’re part of the ‘n’ crowd, but growing up means that matters to you less and less every day.”
It seems Taylor is taking a stand against the norm, not only by standing up for what fashion is to her, but who she is to herself, which is more important and a great lesson to the millions of fans that idolize her.

Betty Crano and her husband Sam started helping with the broadcast of Saturday Morning Polkas min August of 1979. Betty would answer phone requests for Polka Celebrations and was also an ‘On Air’ presonality announcing those celebrations. She endeared herself to the listeners with her wonderful personality and enthusiasm for Polka and Waltz music. When she was unable to make a broadcast listeners would ask “Where is Betty?”.

Saturday Morning Polkas has become a very popular program at WZIP over the years thanks in part to the efforts of Betty and her dedication to the program

The next time you’re listening to us, or any Polka music, give a little nod toward Heavan knowing Betty is looking down very glad you are enjoying the music.

Your Polka Crew; Diane DeGasperis, Barb Zuchniak, Fred Carty, Dale Fashinpaur, and Mtt Schafer
