1979 – This Ain’t Just Disco

On Sat from 11:00 pm EST to 01:00 am EST

My new weekly show pays tribute to the music of 1979, featuring songs from the year I fell in love with music, and songs from 1979 I fell in love with later on!  You’ll hear songs from the likes of Blondie, The Clash, Devo, The Ramones, Talking Heads, The Knack, Cheap Trick, The Police, Donna Summer, The English Beat, Joe Jackson, The Jacksons, Pink Floyd, The B-52’s, ELO, Led Zeppelin, ABBA, The Cars, and music from Sire Records and I.R.S. Records…and much more!

The title of the show is paraphrased from the 1979 Talking Heads classic, “Life During Wartime,” and the show itself will feature rock, punk, dance, soul, disco, rap, alternative (before it was called that), country and Pop Muzik too, and will also feature a weekly PURPLE MONKEY DISHWASHER 70s SPOTLIGHT with DJ HOPE!!!  (You can hear DJ HOPE and PURPLE MONKEY DISHWASHER every Sunday night in her old time slot, 9:00 – 11:00pm!)

Do yourself a favor and tune in, or catch each show on the archives, available for five weeks after it airs!
