We’ll kickoff the Birthday Bash in the Maytag Auditorium at IPTV Studios in Johnston on Friday, August 22 with a special edition of Market to Market at 4:30 p.m. followed by a panel discussion with not just one, but several of our regular analysts who will answer YOUR questions!

Then the party moves outside for a terrific barbeque meal – complete with dessert – and music by Iowa’s own Bob Dorr and Jeff Petersen!  Mike and the analysts will be testing their skills in a friendly BBQ competition, you’ll be able to take a tour of the station, mingle with the analysts, and meet the people who bring you Market to Market each week.  We’ll also have some fun activities for the kids – including story time with Dan Wardell, a kiddie tractor pull, temporary tattoos, and a few surprises.

This will be BYOCBring Your Own Chair (lawnchair, that is) and we’ll provide the rest!
