Postcards Episode: Historic Minnesota Ballrooms

“Ballrooms have a fabulous musical history starting with the Big Bands of the 30s and 40s to the famous artists of the 50s through 90s; the ballrooms in western Minnesota had them all. Hear stories of those who attended the Fiesta Ballroom in Montevideo, and those who attend a surviving ballroom, the Lakeside, in Glenwood.”
