TECHNOLOGY HAS COME A LONG WAY

In my college days at the University Of Florida I was a Beaut-
iful  Music DJ and a Disco DJ  at WRUF-FM. The  music  at  the
100,000 watt station was  usually two alternating reel-to-reel
tapes  with  tracks  on  them. Now, years later, USA Dance Mix
(very, very smaller than WRUF) streams  with  more  technology
than  was available  back then. We often have 10 or more play-
lists  going at any given time as the music hops between them.
Other stations  play the same songs in sequence over and over.
You'll  never  hear the exact same sequence again at USA Dance
Mix which makes streaming that more enjoyable. That may be why
streaming  popularity has increased tremendously over the past
few  years. I never thought I would someday have my own  radio
station (and a Dance one at that), but dreams do come true.///



HOW THIS ALL STARTED (OUR HISTORY)

I was a young teen  with a small 45 rpm record  player  and  a
transistor radio (Google it). Dick Clark and Casey Kasem  made
me well aware that there were music charts and chart positions
(and that fascinated me). I only owned about 40 records at the
time but using my  collection I started  fiddling  with my own
chart. I'd list the better and newer releases near the top and
the older and less popular records  closer to the bottom. Upon
graduating  from college in 1980 many  were  saying  Disco was
dead. Of course it  wasn't! The torch  had been  lit  and  was
burning  brightly. After  moving to  Atlanta  that same year I
started  a  charts  and  DJ tip-sheet, Atlanta  Disco & Dance.
Copies were  mailed to influential club and radio DJs through-
out  the  city  and  across  the Southeast as it's  popularity
spread. Eventually  it  became  USA Disco & Dance as  coverage
reached from  coast to coast. In 1999 we moved to the internet
and have been a part of it for 18 years.//////////////////////



I MISS THE DISCO QUEEN, DONNA SUMMER

During her early years  Donna Summer was the face of Disco and
Dance, who  led  the  parade. Hit after hit after hit, she was
all  over  radio  as  well as the clubs. Over the years  while
other  artists like  Madonna  veered off into Trance and other
sub-genries, Donna  stayed true to herself  and  her fans. She
stuck with Disco! Although  more  popular in her debut  years,
she  continued  to have  hits in every  decade  that followed.
Thank goodness she left behind a legacy of Dance  classics for
us to remember her by. Many with uplifting themes like "I Love
You",  "Could It  Be Magic"  and  "Heaven  Knows". SHE  REALLY
COULD  SING! And  that's  what  made her  such a big icon. Her
music was well suited for both clubs and radio. An ex-roommate
had the  nerve to steal my "4 Seasons Of Love" album.....and I
want you to know I went out and replaced it right away. Nobody
was taking my Summer away from me! R.I.P. Queen Bee///////////



NU DISCO, NEW DISCO, OR WHAT?

(Update of Dec. 2016 blog) Some  like to  name  recent  tracks
that  have  that retro  flavor, Nu Disco or New Disco. Why not
just  Disco? When they  make it NEW or NU it sounds  like  the
"old" Disco went away. 1979 was the banner year for Disco, but
1980 was not the end. Disco tracks  have been  continuous ever
since (over 40 years)! Although some  years were  better  than
others as Dance  music  ventured  into  many fads (which often
overlapped each other). Among them  House, Trance, Punk, Elec-
tro, Techno, Industrial, etc. Often the fads themselves lasted
for year (as in Techno). Some might say Techno and to some ex-
tent the others are still here today (just not in the driver's
seat). If it's the Disco sound then it should be called DISCO!
No need for New or Nu and this and that.//////////////////////




REMIXES DON'T HELP A WEAK PRODUCT
(Update of Dec. 2016 blog) It's not  unusual  to  find a track
with 10 or more remixes available.  No matter how many remixes
a song has, they can't turn a weak tune into a good one. Often
the "best" remix  comes out weeks  after the original  release
date. These are half-baked tracks. Most  songs don't even have
a remix. The original  mix presents the artist's  intent. It's
rare  that a remix is needed. But they do happen and can  open
the door to a wider  audience if they don't stray too far away
from the original  product. Remixes don't do a whole lot for a
song. They do little and more often than not that's not enough
to justify their existance.///////////////////////////////////




SOMETIMES DANCE MUSIC IS A BRIDGE
(Update of Nov. 2016 blog) Just as in life, politics and about
everything  there are periods of transition, Dance music is no
exception. Some new Dance  songs don't fit in with the current
releases, but are still  good. Many  become "bridges" to a fu-
ture  date (which often is a better fit) and the track returns
again. Just because a song is not a hit today  doesn't mean it
can't be one tomorrow. Maybe a rainbow  wold be a better anal-
ogy (than a bridge). A rainbow, linking 2 different  times to-
gether.///////////////////////////////////////////////////////



DANCE CLASSICS STILL PACK A PUNCH

(Update of Oct. 2016 blog) Whether it's "Funkytown" or "Billie
Jean" people still enjoy  hearing  classic  Dance tracks. Some
would like to hear them 24/7 (but they are in the minority, as
most like to hear new-ER tracks too). "We Are Family" describ-
es  most  of us  who like a combination  of  both. We like  to
"Shake Our Groove Thang" across a crowded  Dance floor or just
listen on the radio or internet. So, "Let's All Chant" and let
"The Music Play". It's  time  to  "Let The Beat Hit 'Em"  with
both new and retro  songs  expanding  their minds. "That's The
Way I Like It" and that's  the way you  like it, so "Everybody
Dance" and "Get Into The Groove" and enjoy the ride.//////////
