Dance Party - WFMY 1960

How many of you remember Dance Party on channel 2 each Thursday afternoon? It was sponsored by Royal Crown Cola or as most people called it " RC ". WFMY at that time was broadcasting between 3 and 4 hours of live programming each day not counting the news broadcasts. Those were the days for local television.
