I would go roller skating every friday and Saturday nights at a rink but we didn't have anything called snowball skate.
ack...the 'snowball' was when they would yell over the speakers "IIIiiiiiiittttt's SNOWBALL TIME! Boys line up on one side and girls line up on the other" Then they would turn on the disco ball and the blue lights and play slow music...Journey or something probably. Then the boys would skate over to the girls and pick out a girl to skate with, for one song, then the DJ would say 'switch partners!' and give the guys a few minutes to pick out another girl, and then play another song. They'd do this for 3 songs. Keep in mind these were all elementary aged kids. How embarrassing!
When we went to the skate rink they always played carnival music on those colored vinyls. Once and a while they would take our 45s and play them. Queen - We Will Rock You got shut down when everyone started stomping their skates.
I remember line and partner skates but nothing like you mention... unless i have blocked such things out
We could only request songs to be played....but look out when they did!
Ahh I want to go skating now but I think there are only rollerblades in my garage.... dont think it would end well anyway
