Disco Demolition

Today is the anniversary of the infamous ‘DISCO DEMOLITION” night at the Chicago White Sox game, back in 1979.  It was organized by Steve Dahl, a DJ with a Chicago Rock station.  He got all the fans to bring disco records to the ballpark, and in between the two games of a doubleheader they put all the records in a huge bin and blew them up.

Unfortunately it didn’t stop there . . . after Dahl left, the fans stormed the field and started a riot, and the White Sox had to forfeit the second game.  A lot of people have said that night was the beginning of the end for disco music.
