Merry Christmas from Back To the Boogie Radio Show
David Mancuso, the pioneering DJ whose invite-only parties in the 1970s became the bedrock of New York’s underground dance culture, has died aged 72.
Mancuso’s private parties at The Loft in Manhattan helped establish a vibrant alternative to New York’s commercial club scene in the early 1970s, famed for their exceptional sound quality rather than DJ showmanship. The Loft was the location for the first underground dance party (called “Love Saves the Day”) on February 14, 1970. Since then, the term “The Loft” has come to represent Mancuso’s own version of a non-commercial party where no alcohol, food, or beverages are sold.
When Mancuso threw his first informal house parties, the gay community, (who comprised much of The Loft’s attendee roster) was often harassed in the gay bars and dance clubs. But at The Loft and many other early, private discotheques, they could dance together without fear of police action thanks to Mancuso’s underground, yet legal, business model.
On the second and fourth Tuesday of each month we go “Live” on our radio show. Back to the Boogie is a fun, interactive show of dance music from the disco 70’s through the dance club 90s. The show begins with a mixed set shared by deejays that have an affinity towards disco mix from all over the planet.
The second segment of the show co-hosts and our guests interact with our audience while Freaky Frankie DJ Ramos introduces songs from the 70’s through the 90’s giving you the artist’s discography, their story, and some disco wisdom. Plus see who Carla Lala Ramos picks up in her “Magic Mirror.”
This week’s broadcast we have DJ Ray Morales & DJ Dave sharing their experiences in the deejaying in the club scene back in the “Disco Era” … Lots of high energy here!
Catch Freaky Frankie & Carla Lala Ramos on a “Live Broadcast” on Back To The Boogie Election Night, Tuesday 11/8 at 6 pm!!! It will be a good night to get your “Electoral Vote Boogie” on.

“Back To The Boogie” shares Vincent Price “Thriller” Tidbits
Our radio show, yesterday, began with a clip of Vincent Price with one of his two takes of his “rap or rhyme” for Michael Jackson’s Thriller. To commemorate the anniversary of Vincent Price death (10/25/93), some of Thriller’s Voice Over Segment.
The original name of “Thriller” was “Starlight” but once they decided the theme of the video was horror it became Thriller. Songwriter Rod Temperton wanted a voice from the horror genre to read a poem during the song. Vincent Price appeared in more than 90 horror films. Peggy Lipton, actress who was married to Quincy Jones (Michael Jackson’s producer) knew Vince Price and suggested him.
Once Vincent Price was booked, Temperton wrote the rhyme in the taxi on the way to the studio. Price recorded his portion in only two takes. Thriller video help create the video rental business. The Library of Congress inducted and chose to preserve it in the National Film Registry in 2009. To this day, the only music video ever. https://youtu.be/bfREGjSHD1g

He wants to focus on as a radio personality, destination gigs, corporate events and no longer in a nightclub atmosphere. Frankie DJ began his career in a nightclub in West Park New York, Dejavu in the mid 70’s where Disco was fierce. He has spun from New York to Fort Lauderdale, Florida with much success.
