Ep. 27: The Disco Years Pt. 1 (with Alice Echols)

In Episode 27, we begin our two-part special THE DISCO YEARS where we explore the impact that disco music had on rock, pop, and American culture during the 1970s and beyond.

Echols is professor of history and the Barbara Streisand Chair of Contemporary Gender Studies at USC, as well as the author of four other books, including DARING TO BE BAD: RADICAL FEMINISM IN AMERICA 1967-1975, SHAKY GROUND: THE SIXTIES AND IT’S AFTERSHOCKS, SCARS OF SWEET PARADISE: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF JANIS JOPLIN, and her upcoming new book SHORTFALL: FAMILY SECRETS, FINANCIAL COLLAPSE, AND A HIDDEN HISTORY OF AMERICAN BANKING, due out in October 2017
