WNYC Soundcheck (14 July 2009)

“Thirty years ago this week, a Chicago DJ organized an anti-disco rally that took place between games of a White Sox doubleheader at Comiskey Park. But ‘Disco Demolition Night’ turned into a riot fueled by anti-black and anti-gay sentiments. Steve Greenberg, CEO of S-Curve Records and a former president of Columbia Records, joins us to trace the impact of that night through Michael Jackson’s Thriller, African American and gay culture, and more.”
