Just seen this over at DJH and thought some of the disco heads would appreaceate it

Lenny Fontana Presents The Second Anniversary at Paradise Garage Night Club “The Live Broadcast” penned now as Radio Gold Dust. It originally aired on 107.5 WBLS FM New York with the legendary MC/DJ Frankie Crocker and mix courtesy of DJ Larry Levan back in 1979. This was a groundbreaking moment in dance music history that this club had made there special anniversary live on the radio. There will be interviews from Tom Moulton, John Morales, Vince Aletti, Judy Weinstein (For The Record) as well a live performance from that night of Dan Hartman and Loletta Holloway not heard since the night of the airing almost 32 years ago. The airing of these lost tapes will happen on BBC Radio 6 for a special six hour event. As well Lenny will be doing the Essential Mix on Friday night BBC Radio 1that month so stay tuned for the exact airing of the dates in May 2011.

This will now be broadcast in July & Lenny runs down some Disco faves in the new edition of IDJ magazine.

Word from Lenny is that Monday 18th - July 22nd should hear 5 x 1 hour shows with interviews and narrative on 6 Lenny hosting the Essential mix that Friday. Saturday 23rd July hears the full 5 hour recording from the PG's 2nd Anniversary back in 1979...This is the best recording you could possibly hear of this event. Mark your diaries...
