Coolest DJ's in Des Moines

Dick Vance and Ben Sorensen


Ben Sorensen gives a $1,000 check to Dick Vance in front of KSO fishbowl on July 1, 1961. The money was for a charity. Vance was sitting on 50,000 pounds of ice proclaiming KSO DJ's were the coolest DJ's in Iowa. It apparently gave new meaning to the phrase "freezing your butt off."

There was a contest tied into the promotion and the listeners were to guess how long it would take to melt the 50,000 lbs of ice.
