Lee Kopman on Phil Donahue
Lee Kopman has created more calls used in contemporary square dance than any other individual, some 350 or more. In 1980, he appeared on the Phil Donahue Show and presented this program of square dancing, joined by dancers from New York, Chicago, Ohio and Wisconsin. Assisted at the mic by caller Dave Taylor, Kopman provides lucid responses to the host's questions, and he provides clear demonstrations of the differences between traditional and modern square dancing.
Also included here is Bob Osgood's commentary about the broadcast from his column in Sets in Order (August 1980).
