Polonia Bids Farewell to Radio Host
Tadeusz Tarapacki, a well-known broadcaster
on the Polish American Radio Program, 860 AM
in Philadelphia, hosted the Monday broadcast
for over twenty years and will be remembered
for his enthusiastic personality and entertaining
music selections. Educated in Poland, he
was well-spoken and very informative. Polish
historical, cultural and patriotic events were
always highlighted during his broadcasts which were appreciated
by the large Polish American population in the Philadelphia area. If
there was a cause that would help the Polish American community
or unite people with Poland, he made sure listeners were wellinformed and asked to be involved. Tadeusz enjoyed attending events
and meeting people. It was often stated that he was the life of the
party, and that’s how we ask Polonia to remember him. The music
on his broadcasts was always joyful and he featured artists from
Poland and America that lifted listeners’ spirits. In recent years with
broadcasts available on the Internet, his broadcasts were enjoyed by
people near and far, even in Poland. His smile, quick wit, knowledge
of Polish history and Polish pride will be missed.
All of Polonia extends condolences to his wife Basia and his
children. Everyone from the daily Polish American Radio Program,
Barbara Ilnicka and her family, and Michael Blichasz and his family
join with Polonia in expressing condolences to the Tarapacki family.
Thanks to all who join us in remembering this great man.
Following the Memorial Mass at St. Adalbert Church in the Port
Richmond section of Philadelphia, his remains will be returned to
Poland for burial.
