    This is a tape of a 90 minute special produced by Dick Clark that originated from New York’s hottest disco club, Studio 54, and from the NBC Studios in Burbank, California. The show was telecast on August 19, 1978 at 11:30 p.m., pre-empting the normally scheduled Saturday Night Live show.
    Note that at 9:10 into the video they visit the famous Studio 54 in New York. In retrospect, Studio 54 was probably the most famous and infamous disco club of the late 70's disco era. This video inside the Club is an excellent opportunity to see what made Disco the phenomenon it was.
    Studio 4 at the NBC Burbank Studios was converted into a discotheque where 80 Los Angeles area couples competed to determine the best disco dancing couple.

    Among the guests on the show were The Village People, The Spinners, magician Lee Edwards, and trapeze performer Jann Ricca.

    In 1978 I was the Manager of 3M Graphics Systems Television Network and the ½” VHS video tape format was new in the United States. While developing 3M magnetic tape for this new format we would evaluate different formulation lots by recording off-air programs. I recently found a box of these test tapes that are now over 40 years old. I’ve uploaded them for your enjoyment . . . and please excuse the occasional tape wrinkles, drop-outs, mis-tracking and jump cuts.

This doubled as a pilot for a monthly series that would have aired in "SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE"'s time period. Rumor has it that Lorne Michaels had a fit over that proposal, and warned NBC to forget it, or he'd walk. Nothing further was ever seen of "LE DISCO".

Ken Kashan was the best NY Hustle dancer in LA. Had a huge ego, but he could back it up. Maxine was a nice lady and a great dancer. She had such a light touch, so easy to lead. Nice to see the past in living color!

Interesting how the New York Hustle in this video is the Original Style -- the period when it was still a slot dance and before it became a circular "Street Hustle" dance.
