SONG TITLES DO MATTER

I once received a 12" vinyl promo with several artists on both
sides. The last  song on the B-side had a crazy  title, from a
group I'd never heard of, so I figured that track  would  most
likely  stink. So  I delayed  listening to something I thought
surely, was probably not very  good. Novelty Dance songs never
did appeal to me. Maybe "Disco Duck" poisoned the well for all
future  similar  releases. Eventually I did  find the  time to
check  out  that  track and to  my surprise it was a hot track
(although different from  most  others of that time). The name
of  that  release was "Moskow Diskow" by Telex. So, a funky or
strange  title  from an unknown  group did  not make a big im-
impression (on me) because of it's title. Titles  can  make a
difference  and artists should take more care in deciding upon
one. Many a record has been sunk by a bad title.//////////////



IS THERE A NEW MADONNA?

Donna Summer lit a huge fire under Disco music in the 70's and
Madonna  did  much the same for Dance in the 80's. We've  been
waiting for the NEXT Madonna ever since. Would you be  shocked
if the next Madonna were a man, a group or even a movement? We
first  learned of Re-Tide (an Italina trio)in 2015 and they've
been  bubbling  since. Now, with 3 new Hot Picks on our latest
chart (Jan. 25th) Re-Tide has stepped in front of the pack. An
Italian  movement which has suddenly  turned  into  the latest
Dance  fad  with no end in sight. An infusion of talent with a
Disco  sounding  sytle  others  are  enjoying. An  infusion of
air in an "out of breath" Dance  world. Is it time again for a
new Italo  Disco renaissance to fire up the Dance  kingdom and
put  some gas in our tanks? The first  Italo  Disco  scene was
from 1977 to 1983. How long will this one last? Stay tuned.///




STREAMING RADIO SECRET
USA Dance Mix  covers a 40 year period of Dance music. That is
a challenge  when you're  streaming on the net. How do we keep
track of it all? As the station was formed and tracks were up-
loaded, I noticed that the title and artist  could be tweaked.
I decided to add  the year to the titles (sounded  like a good
thing to do and it would be educational at the same  time). It
turned out to be a great idea. Having the year  along with the
title  allows for easier  making of playlists. The 80's can be
put  into one, 90's another, etc. Some  listener  devices  are
capable  of displaying  artist and title and the  listener can
see  from  which year the tracks are from. A small decision at
the time turned out to be a huge bonus!///////////////////////



THAT CONCERT WAS THE BOMB!

I've never been a big fan of concerts (probably because of the
high cost and large crowds). In fact, I could  probably  count
all my concerts on one hand. My first one was in Jacksonville,
Florida (Earth, Wind & Fire & The Emotions). IT WAS  THE BOMB!
A very moving  and  memorable experience. One of the few white
people  in the auditorium  but I didn't let that stop me. They
did  many  of  their  big  hits  but it  was an impromptu  jam
session  that stands out most in my mind. The bass and rhythms
playing together to a funky beat that you could  feel deep in-
side your soul. GOOD TIMES!///////////////////////////////////




USA DANCE MIX WAVES GOODBYE TO 1977
Our 40 Years Of Dance format  requires that we wave goodbye to
1977 tracks in 2018. They  will  still be heard  on our  retro
70's show every  Sunday  night however. We need to be relevant
to a larger audience  by not sounding  too  outdated. We  play
more post 2000 tracks than pre-2000. Here is out list of  some
of the best  tracks of 1977: Chic-Dance, Dance, Dance, Michael
Zager Band-Let's  All  Chant, Brainstorm-Lovin' Is  Really  My
Game, Donna  Summer-I Feel  Love, Evelyn  King-Shame, Odyssey-
Native  New  Yorker, Rosebud-Have  A  Cigar, First  Choice-Dr.
Love,  El CoCo-Cocomotion, Gonzalez-Haven't  Stopped  Dancing,
T-Connection-On Fire, Peter  Brown-Do You Wanna Get Funky With
Me, Bionic Boogie-Risky  Changes (and 12 others  played on USA
Dance Mix). Most will not be  gone  forever  as  many  current
artists sample and rework the classics quite often.///////////




THAT TRACK WAS VERY REPETITIVE
Flashback to 1979, I'm doing  my radio Disco show  Friday  and
Saturday  nights  at the  University Of Florida. Somebody  has
signed us up with a promo service and I'm  getting  some  very
hot 12" promos. In between classes and working another job, it
often was hard to find time to preview them. Such was the case
with  this  LEGENDARY song (which I checked out off-air during
the show). It sounded great from the first spin.....then about
midways  it got  very, very  repetitive. At 6:45 in  length, I
only  put on the air about 5 minutes and  then went to another
track. To this day it's still  probably one of the most repet-
itive Disco songs ever but people don't seem to mind, and most
give it a pass. It's also among the most sampled  Disco  songs
too. If I was on a deserted  island  and could  only  have one
song with me "Haven't You Heard" by Patrice Rushen would prob-
ably be it.///////////////////////////////////////////////////



RHYTHMIC RULES THE AIRWAVES

If givien the choice of a Rhythmic track over  something else,
I'd take  Rhythmic 90% of the time. For  me, it's most evident
while  driving  and  listening  to  music (usually  radio) and
selecting a station or song. Rhythmic seems to hold up  better
over time when compared to non-Rhythmic songs. Sure, there are
some mellow and even Rock  and  Country songs that I like, but
Rhythmic  gets  my  greatest  attention. Most of the  Rock and
Country tracks I listen to could even be considered  Rhythmic.
A nice, smooth, mellow  jam has it's place in my  world (as it
should  yours) but if you're  like me, you get the most satis-
faction from something that makes you want to get up and shake
your groove thang!////////////////////////////////////////////
