Rub Radio: Paradise Garage Tribute


During quarantine, a list of 1000+ records Larry Levan played at the Paradise Garage made the rounds, and we had some time on our hands so we went through it and listened to a ton of disco songs. While the list turns out to be partially inaccurate, it did light a fire under us to rewatch Maestroand make a mix of a bunch of our favorite dance classics from the late 70s / early 80s.
