Disco Night

It is fun to see that PBS is airing a special Disco Night program these days as part of its summer fundraising drive. I mentioned in an earlier post that a Police concert was used also as an incentive for viewers to donate money in a fundraiser this spring. There is something good about aging then and slowly but surely being in PBS’s main target audience…

I got to watch only part of the show (the first 20 minutes) and it was great to see Taste of Honey (no idea those two ladies – who are still hot by the way – were “guitar heroes”…), the folks who created Disco Inferno, or two of the ladies of Chic’s early days. By the way, I always thought that their greatest hit “Le Freak c’est Chic” was spelled “Le Fric…”, which means money in slang in French… Not sure I understand why “Le Freak c’est Chic” but it is irrelevant, isn’t it?
