It all started...
on June 15, 1955 when two Milwaukee radio legends started working at
a small AM radio station in Hartford - WTKM. Herb Wittka and
Bob Barry presented the first Continental Showcase from the basement
of a farm house. During the show’s run Herb Wittka had a number of
sidekicks including his wife Edna Wittka, Bob Barry, Larry
Jay, Bob Bradley and many more. In 1996 he brought Robert Deglau on
board to produce the show at radio station WZER.
On August 21st, 2004 Herb retired and passed the show on to producer
Robert Deglau. Shortly after Robert took over, the show moved to Joy
1340 (WJYI) where it has been ever since. In August 2014,
Continental Showcase celebrated ten years on Joy with Robert at the
Listeners can hear Continental Showcase both locally and
internationally. In Southeastern Wisconsin it can be heard on WJYI
radio (1340 AM) and (98.7 FM) and in HD radio on WHQG HD-2,
