A long time ago (1978 to be exact) Disco music was king.
A local tv channel WIS (which stands for "Wonderful Iodine State") started a show called DANCE! The show was recorded out of their Bull Street studios in Columbia.
Dance, was a weekly show which followed "Saturday Night Live." It consisted of a host (Wes Clark, Mark Sherman and Mike Goldman all hosted at one point), live dance audience and performances by popular performers of the day.
