/ Turn the Beat Around / Music / Locomotion – The Podcast


It’s been a long hot summer this year in Melbourne and whilst the nights are young, disco is still alive on Turn The Beat Around.  On Episode 7-2019 we’ve got an Australian Number 1 single from ’76, Fox’s S-S-S-Single Bed as well as dancefloor fillers from Rod Stewart, Gloria Gaynor and some 80s soulful funk from Level 42 and Val Young.  We spin Save Me by Dutch duo Say When! which was the blueprint behind 90s Italo disco hit, Rhythm Of The Night by Corona alongside 20 other disco bangers from the 70s and 80s. Come on come on, do the Locomotion with me.
