The Mollie B Polka Party is a weekly RFD-TV show that features host Molly Busta of the Jim Busta Band and Squeezebox. The program is an hour long and the aim is to provide a variety of popular polka bands and music to viewers. The show features ethnic styles as well as traditional styles of polka, focusing on variety more than on tradition. Mollie Busta and Ted Lange are co-creative directors for this venture. More than 24 bands were recorded for the first broadcast over a four day period in a wide spectrum of musical venues including fairs and concerts. The program was shot with 6 high definition cameras, making it the first polka program to be filmed and made viewable in true high definition. A few of the bands featured during the first taping in Wahoo Nebraska were the Polka Nuts, and of course Squeezebox and the Jim Busta Band playing in two hour sets.
