The Iowa Barn Dance Frolic program air on WHO, and later on WHO-TV, from 1931 well into the fifties. When WHO moved into their present studios in 1982, a re-creation of the Iowa Barn Dance Frolic was produced as part of the grand opening celebration. We have a short excerpt from that broadcast for you to enjoy. Something to think about - even this re-created program is over 20 years old.
