About the Disc Jockey / Emcee
Ed Reimers was one of the emcees on the old WHO Barn Dance Frolic radio
show that aired over WHO in Des Moines, Iowa. They said his was the friendly
voice folks would hear when the announcer said, "We return you to the studio
for a commercial announcement."
They said he was seldom seen on the stage of the Barn Dance Frolic, yet
listeners knew him for the many shows on WHO where he was the lead announcer.
Ed got his start on WHO in 1932 when he won an announcing contest.
The souvenir program mentions that he not only handled the studio commercials
but also wrote many of the 'dramatic' Barn Dance Frolic skits.
