And of course, the Disco Profiles will keep on coming, like this month's edition - which given my feelings is quite appropriate - The Emotions!

This is going to be a great year for disco so keep your radio tuned to 94.7 The Pulse and your browser right here for the best disco and giveaways! Well I was lucky enough to attend the opening night of "Oh, What a Night" and attend the after show party. Story wise it's pretty thin, and the costumes weren't very authentic but the music is great - it packs in 35 funky disco tracks so until "Lucky Stars"  comes out, book tickets now! Being the start of a new month, it's also time for a new disco profile, and this month it's the disco movie that started it all, "Saturday Night Fever"! Click on the banner above to find out everything about the film, from story to trivia to chart info! So what are you waiting for? Catch the fever!

Click on the banner above to find out all bout Rick, the Duck and the lyrics to the smash hit so you can sing along in the privacy of your own home!

Firstly I'd like to say a big thanks to Grant Baensch for filling the platform shoes while I was away - but don't fear, I will be back next week! Secondly, it's time for the November Disco Profile and this month is a doozy! That's right, it's the legendary cult figure Roger Voudouris! Now I hope you appreciate the effort I went into finding out some info on Roger, as he's a hard man to find info on! Still I did manage to write a brief history, lyric's to "Get Used to It" plus a complete discography! So click away during the official Roger Voudouris month!

27/10/2001: Well, I am away for the next three Saturdays - next week I'm MC-ing a wedding (congratulations Paul and Michelle) and the other two I am performing in "Under the Greenwood Tree" for Theatre of the Winged Unicorn!

But now I'm back and I've got fresh new disco profile for you. And this month, I'd thought I'd go something a little different and highlight a movie phenomenon instead of a disco artist. Don't worry, we'll still profile your favourite singers and bands, but how could I not talk about Grease!

23/07/2001: I'm back from the good ole U S of A and what a trip! Firstly thanks to Cory O' Connor and Grant Baensch for helping out when I was gone. Now where do I start! We started at Las Vegas and saw some great shows, but the stand out was Rick Springfield in EFX Alive!  Boy he was amazing (and did Jessie's Girl and Don't talk to Strangers) and the show had great special effects! We then made our way to Orlando where we stayed in Disney World. You must go to Disney World. It truly is the happiest place on earth! All the worlds: MGM, Epcot, Animal Kingdom and the Magic Kingdom were amazing. We also did Universal's Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios, plus the Kennedy Space Centre (Hi to Shuttle Commander Rick Searfoss from Kelly and me) and Sea World. From there we headed to New York which was amazing! Luckily I'm on  the A list, so we managed to see Mel Brooks' "The Producers" starring Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick on Broadway. It is the funniest show we have ever seen! We were lucky enough to meet Mr Broderick after the show and he's a heck of a nice guy! We also caught Jon Lovitz and Larry Miller in Neil Simon's "The Dinner Party" and Tom Selleck (who was brilliant!) in "A Thousand Clowns". After seeing all the sights in NY like  the Empire State, Statue of Liberty, Guggenheim, The Met, MoMa and Central Park we relunctantly made our way to Hollywood and Disneyland, Universal Studios and the Walk of Fame! What a trip! I'll post some pix as soon as they are developed! In the meantime Kelly and I are saving for our next trip back! (And if Matthew Broderick needs an understudy, you can email me here!)

21/06/2001: Well, I'm jetting off to the good ole U S of A for the next 3 weeks, but I will be on air this week. Over the following weeks, Cory O'Connor will be filling in the chair but I will be doing some live reports direct from Florida and New York, so stay tuned!
