Hoosierland Barn Dance
Muncie, IN

WLBC Hoosierland Barn Dance

One of the first mentions we found was in an old article about the emcee and singing star of the show, Tex White. In 1953, the show was being held at the Gibson arena in Muncie, Indiana. It was aired over WLBC each Saturday night from 10:30pm to midnight.

We'll add more as we find it. Or you can drop us a line, too.
