Friday on The AIR we offer up a brand-new episode of MIRRORBALL, followed by an encore edition of Sydney’s Big Electric Cat. The AIR is PopCult’s sister radio station. You can hear these shows on The AIR website, or just click on the embedded player elsewhere on this page.
Friday at 2 PM The AIR once again transports you back to the Golden Age of Disco, onlly this time we have a record-correcting twist. Mel Larch’s Disco showcase, MIRRORBALL, brings you the best of the classic Disco era of the 1970s, but the truth is, there were still classic Disco tunes hitting the charts for a few years beyond that. To prove her point, Mel has assembled an all-star line-up of Disco songs that hit the charts in 1980.
This new hour of classic Disco hits shows that the era of polyester, lighted dancefloors and mirrorballs was not quite dead yet in the “Me Decade.”
