DAVID GREENE, HOST:
Good morning. I'm David Greene.

KENNY LOGGINS: (Singing) Got to, got to cut loose, footloose, kick off...
GREENE: Kicking off your Sunday shoes and getting down? Well, in Henryetta, Okla., that was actually illegal. An ordinance banning dancing within 500 feet of a church always had people comparing the town to the plot in the movie "Footloose." Well, no more. City council repealed that law. A guy at the meeting held up a sign basically quoting Kevin Bacon.

KEVIN BACON: (As Ren) I thought this was a party - let's dance.
