Of her next broadcast, DJ Darla Bea writes: “On this week’s edition of ‘Rock It Properly,’ we’re gonna play a game of HOUSE as we take a trip across the radio airwaves to learn about the dance music genre that originated in Chicago during the 1980′s and that spread to all corners of the World – HOUSE MUSIC!
Listen up for characteristics of early house music: ‘four-on-the-floor’ dance drumbeats. We’ll also compare Disco to House. Later we’ll learn to Vogue and where it started way before Madonna took hold of the underground dance style.
What song about Voguing by Sex Pistols-mastermind Malcolm McLaren went to #1?
Join me on the KCSB Airwaves and get ready to rock out! CLASS IS IN SESSION… (*Do your pre-listening homework and tune into reDISCOvery with DJ Tony Fuze from 6-8pm on Sunday 1/27 for the real local heroes of house music.)”
“Rock It Properly” airs on Sundays in the winter from 8-10pm.
