PHILADELPHIA – Dancin’ its way back by popular demand, PHL17 will be celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Dancin’ On Air with a totally tubular 80s Dance Party at the Electric Factory on Friday, November 4, 2011 from 8pm-2am.

The station once known as “The Great Entertainer” promises to deliver one bodacious event with host appearances, a live DJ spinning all the hits, and more!  PHL17 will be shooting footage during the 80s Dance Party for an upcoming Dancin’ On Air special set to air Thanksgiving night in prime time as well as future specials that are in the works.

Dancin’ On Air was broadcast live from October 12, 1981 to December 31, 1987, reaching across seven east coast states. Featuring a mix of reality, music, and dance, Dancin’ On Air spearheaded the return of the daily dance show in Philadelphia. Live from PHL17’s very own studio, the broadcast was also known to travel on-location to other East Coast favorites such as Penn’s Landing, Ocean City, Wildwood, and Hershey Park, to name a few.

Tickets for the event are on sale now through Ticketmaster.com.
