On July 13, 1950 the largest square dance ever was held in Santa Monica, California to mark the one-hundred-fiftieth anniversary of the city.  An estimated 15,000 dancers pranced away under a clear sky on the Pacific Ocean with 35,000 spectators also in attendance.  

The event was recorded.  That reel-to-reel tape has been digitally remastered and is presented as a series of podcasts here.  Each week's episode will offer the dance along with background information on the event and participants.

Buddy Weaver Music presents this remarkable recording and retains copyright.
