Summary
  • A illustrated collection of essays and interviews about the "anti-disco rally," Disco Demolition, held on July 12, 1979 at Comiskey Park and organized by Bill Veeck and DJ Steve Dahl
  • In the late 1970s disco music dominated radio airwaves, to the dismay of many rock music fans. To boost attendance, White Sox owner Bill Veeck and Chicago DJ Steve Dahl collaborated to host "Disco Demolition" on July 12, 1979. The plan was to blow up disco records on the field between the games of a double-header. But when the crowd stormed the field, tearing out seats and lighting bonfires, the field was destroyed. The second game was canceled for the first time in Major League Baseball history-- and America's music culture was changed forever
