Mel Larch dances it up bigtime as the ladies take over Friday afternoon on The AIR. The AIR is PopCult’s sister radio station. You can hear our shows on The AIR website, or just click on the embedded player found elsewhere on this page.
At 2 PM, Mel Larch uncorks a new MIRRORBALL! The AIR’s showcase of classic Disco music shines it’s sparkly spotlight on classic Disco tracks featurng female vocalists. It’s “Ladies Night,” only without that particular song, which of course, was sung by dudes. A special side note this week is the very Disco-sounding opening track by an artist who isn’t usually associated with Disco music.
Mel wanted to pay tribute to Olivia Newton John, who died earlier this week, and she found just the right song for the job.
For one hour you can go back to the Golden Age of Disco, with women leading the charge.
