Mikey Hersh's pretend boyfriend, Barry Gibb.

In this week’s episode of MisenPOPic Radio, me and Mikey are taking all of you into the wayback machine and landing in the age of disco!! In addition to a general discussion of why disco never died, a rundown of the genre’s best songs, and a couple of book recommendations, here’s what you get:

-Lots and lots of Mikey singing-including a tour de force rendition of Cheryl Lynn’s “Got to Be Real” to open the show.

-A plug for Larry Harris’s “And Party Every Day”, the story behind Casablanca Records.

-Bigg Money Mike gives props to any who can rock a killer karaoke version of “Stayin’ Alive”.

-Mikey introduces BMM to a CD that contains lullaby versions of AC/DC songs.

-BMM confirms the fact that you, indeed, can have sex in a YMCA.

-Mikey admits to a steamy man-crush on BARRY GIBB.

-BARRY GIBB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

-Is “Disco Inferno” the best disco song of all time? And who the hell is the white dude with the O face in the video?

-BMM recalls his very first “Andrea True Connection”.

-Mikey wonders whether KC & the Sunshine Band will be elected into the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame.
