About the show

Playing tracks by

Weather Girls, The Pointer Sisters, Gloria Gaynor, Labelle, Thelma Houston and more.

Disco. In the 70s the mere mention of the word would make my lip curl and lead to a spleen-venting rant against this antithesis of inspired improvisation, this transmogrifier of my beloved album-oriented FM stations, this consignor of great studio musicians to the misery of the unemployment line, this AAARRRGGGHHHH… Oh, to be at Comiskey Park the night of July 12th, 1979!

But time has a way of making all things relative. Thirty years later, Disco sounds positively vibrant when compared to the deadening thump of much of today’s electronic dance music.

The passing of time has another appealing advantage when collecting music. You can sift through years of dross and pluck only the gems.

A gem worthy of note is Gloria Gaynor’s “Never Can Say Goodbye” – one of the defining recordings in Disco history, the first side-long seamless dance mix LP.

This goes out to Patti LaBelle, an impassioned performer whose outrageousness on stage never outshines her incredible talent.
