RFD-TV's popular weekly polka music program, "The Mollie B Polka Party", starring Mollie B, has, for the second consecutive year, won the Polka America Corporation's (PACE) Award for Best Variety CD for their "2012 Mollie B Christmas Special."
This award, based on a popular "people's choice" vote, comes just days after Mollie B was also named the International Polka Association's Favorite Female Vocalist.
The next live filming of the Mollie B Polka Party will be Aug. 8-11 at the Medina Entertainment Center in Medina.

The series includes dancing, music, live events and specials. Mollie B entertains an avid fan base and tours regularly with her husband, Ted Lange, and their band, Squeezebox.
"'The Mollie B Polka Party' represents the best in wholesome, variety entertainment that's suitable for everyone in the family to watch and enjoy," says Patrick Gottsch, founder and president of Rural Media Group, Inc.
"Mollie B's an incredible performer who knows how to put on a good TV show, as well as a live music and dance party," Gottsch continued.
