In the late 70s, who could rock ‘n’ roll fans depend on to provide an alternative to the disco-saturated music scene? Well, certainly not their favorite rock ‘n’ roll bands, that’s for sure. Even as angry fans declared “Disco Sucks” and tore apart Comiskey Park in Chicago in 1979, hard rock titans like Kiss, Alice Cooper, The Rolling Stones, and Cheap Trick were applying the formula to their own sounds with varying degrees of success (or failure). Hosts Glen and Shaun take on the band wagon jumpers and Johnny-Travolta-come-latelys on their latest episode, “Counter-Blast Goes Disco!”
