Here is what Modern Western Square Dancing sounds like today.

Singing calls are a big part of the dance activity in the 21st century.  These tune derivatives are produced for square dance education.  Reflecting the dance calls, the style of calling, the speed of dancing, and the changing musical tastes of the dancers, they represent the best of today's Modern Western Square Dancing.

The calls used in these singing calls are from the SSD or Social Square Dance program.  The callers are staff recording artists for the Blue Star Music label.  

"Someday (We Could Be In Love)" by Buddy Weaver on Blue Star 2619

"Forever Young" by Mike Hogan on Blue Star 2629

"Round Round" by Eric Henerlau on Blue Star 2630

Released in March 1962 for dancer's home practice.  While only twenty calls are used (the basic of MWSD at the time), they are put together in challenging combinations.  Marshall Flippo's presentation is excellent and shows how he had evolved as a caller from his previous album, covered in episode 323.
