Sounds of the 70’s hour and this week we feature DISCO hits of the 70s
On “Great Soul Performances” this evening, we go back to the “Disco.” The disco ball is shining, the dance floor is polished, and we’re gonna dance the night away with music by: Gloria Gaynor, the Village People, Donna Summer, the Trammps, Manu DiBango, the Joneses, Alicia Bridges, Tavares, the Bee Gees, Sister Sledge, Rick James and many many more. The party begins at 7PM ET, 6PM CT, 5PM MT and 4PM PT following an encore of this past Sunday’s “Great Soul Performances 2: The 80’s” at 5PM eastern time. So put on your finest dancing shoes and meet me at the “Disco” this evening on RadioMaxMusic.com.
This week on the Vinyl Resting Place put your dancing shoes on for some seventies disco. Put your shiny disco balls up and enjoy your host Willie B for Disco on RadioMaxMusic! Check the schedule for encore times.
Hopefully the bitter winter season is finally going to be behind us, and that makes me wanna dance. I was a fan of “Disco.” So, starting today, and going forward throughout the rest of the year on “Great Soul Performances,” we’ll take some time out to salute that era that people either loved or hated.
I’m sure that all over the country many cities had their favorite discos, but for me, being a Native New Yorker, I’ll never forget hanging out and dancing in places like “Xenon” on West 43rd Street, the “Cheetah” on 52nd Street, the “Electric Circus” on St. Mark’s Place in the East Village, “Trude Heller’s” aka “Trude Heller’s Trick” at 418 6th Avenue at 9th Street, “Fantasy East” in the Wakefield section of the Bronx, “Two Different Worlds” in Woodside Queens and of course the “disco of discos,” “Studio 54” on 54th Street between Broadway and 8th Avenue.
Cynthia and I went there often and we were there the night Frankie Crocker rode in on a white stallion. Memories none of us will ever forget. So you see where I’m going here. I’ve polished up the old Disco Ball, put on my platform shoes and my bell bottom pants and we are going to get down. All your favorite disco artists will be on board like: Donna Summer, the Village People, Chic, Amii Stewart, the Bee Gees, Thelma Houston, the Trammps, Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, Rick James and all the rest.
Our disco opens at 7PM ET, 6PM CT, 5PM MT and 4PM PT. Naturally, we kick it off after the encore of this past Sunday’s “Great Soul Performances 2: The 80’s” at 5PM eastern time. It’s gonna be a “Disco Inferno” this evening on “Great Soul Performances” on RadioMaxMusic.com. BTW, don’t forget to move your clocks ahead one hour at 2AM eastern as we usher in what we used to call “Daylight Savings Time” as hope springs eternal. Pun intended. See Ya Later ‘Gator!

Gloria Gaynor (born September 7, 1949) is an American singer, best known for the disco era hits “I Will Survive” (Hot 100 number 1, 1979), “Never Can Say Goodbye” (Hot 100 number 9, 1974), “Let Me Know (I Have a Right)” (Hot 100 number 42, 1980) and “I Am What I Am” (R&B number 82, 1983).
Gaynor was a singer with the Soul Satisfiers, a jazz/pop band, in the 1960s. As Gloria Fowler she recorded “Will You Be My Guy / Train Of Love” for a small Chicago label releasing a second single “She’ll Be Sorry/Let Me Go Baby” as Gloria Gaynor in 1965.
Her first real success came in 1975 with the release of her album Never Can Say Goodbye, which established her as a disco artist. The first side of this album consisted of three disco songs (“Honey Bee”, “Never Can Say Goodbye” and “Reach Out, I’ll Be There“), with no breaks in between the songs. This 19-minute dance marathon proved to be enormously popular, especially at dance clubs. All three songs were released as singles via radio edits, and all of them became hits. The album was instrumental in introducing disco music to the public, “Never Can Say Goodbye” becoming the first song to top Billboard magazine’s dance chart. Capitalizing on the success of her first album, Gloria Gaynor quickly released her second album, Experience Gloria Gaynor, later that same year. While this album was also successful, it was not quite as popular as her previous album in the mainstream.
Some of her lesser-known singles, due to lack of recurrent airplay — including “Honey Bee” (1974), “Casanova Brown” (1975), and “Let’s Make A Deal” (1976) — became hits in the clubs and reached the Top 5 on Billboard’s disco charts. After her 1976 album, I’ve Got You, Gaynor shifted from her hit production team, to work with other productions. While it seemed like a good move, her subsequent producers did not seem to match Gaynor’s vocal approach and style as well. (Source: wikipedia)

Robin Gibb, one-third of the Bee Gees, died Sunday after a long battle with cancer, his spokesperson has confirmed via a statement. Gibb was 62 years old.
“The family of Robin Gibb, of the Bee Gees, announce with great sadness that Robin passed away today following his long battle with cancer and intestinal surgery,” reads the statement. “The family have asked that their privacy is respected at this very difficult time.”
Two years ago, Gibb battled colon and liver cancer, but despite making what he called a “spectacular recovery,” a secondary tumor recently developed, complicated by a case of pneumonia.
