Dance Party Preview

In deference to Tuesday's snow, we started the show with New Year's Eve snow stories. Then, reflecting concerns over the effect of the COVID relief bill that Congress just passed, we checked in with Mark Jackson, City Administrator of Story City, who gave us the good news that forethought and careful planning, plus incentives for shopping local, had resulted in a healthy Christmas economy with no stores closing in Story City.  In the spirit of adaptation, we then filled in the features of KHOI's virtual dance party "2020 Begone."  Carole Horowitz introduced the Family Activities starting with the Ames Children's Choirs and concluding with Cynthia McClure's "Toy Box" of novelty songs from 5 to 8 p.m., Meredith Francom described how the ZOOMWAY Maskerade from 8- 8:30, and Michael Murphy introduced the DJ's who'll take us to 1 a.m.
