Logo for Dave Pearce's Disco Anthems - Episode 1

Dave Pearce presents a six-part guide to the last 30 years of disco culture, from stone cold classics to hidden gems. Dave, whose first ever gig experience was seeing Sylvester play at Hammersmith Apollo, has long been a fan of disco and credits it as a catalyst for his own role in UK dance music. This is his essential, alphabetical guide to disco tunes. In the first programme Dave looks at letters A to D, with classic tunes from The Bees Gees, Chic and Hamilton Bohannon. He also plays the record widely regarded as the first disco tune ever made; Soul Makossa by Manu Debango.
