Fantastic Dance Classics



Poetic waxing is afoot: DJ Jeannie Hopper plays the classics, back from the times when, beneath the gleaming of the disco ball, all became one. Between Eddy Grant's impassioned and mournful reggae rhythms and Edwin Starr's equally passionate ode to low riders, expect your neuromusical systems to be fully penetrated. Rounding out this roundly nostalgic hour are the likes of Was (Not Was), the Steve Miller Band, Michael Zager Band, Robert Owens, Liquid Liquid, Raw Silk, Jocelyn Brown, Level 42, and Chaka Khan. So come with an appetite for timeless tunes and getting wet--the pulsating clubs of Richard Long and Associates , who did everything from the Paradise Garage to Studio 54 and Danceteria, will get you drenched--these systems rocked our worlds and set a precedent for club sound to this day.

RADIO SERIES

Gems from independent artists, record labels and producers! Jeannie Hopper has a long-standing herstory of giving artists a chance to be heard. In her DJ sets and on WBAI's Liquid Sound Lounge, she regularly puts together playlists of under-represented and emerging artists so her loyal following can just sit back and avoid the high-intensity shuffle of sorting through all the beautiful and overwhelming things the Information Age has to offer. Now she brings some of that good stuff to Clocktower Radio (formerly Art International Radio, or, AIR).
