Episode Info:

This week Aaron Rubio dives onto the musical grenade that is "Disco Duck", the 1976 number one hit by Rick Dees and his Cast of Idiots. Perhaps known best for his long-running Top 40 countdown program, Rick Dees also recorded a string of disco parody songs in the 1970s that featured duets with personified woodland creatures. Despite the ridiculous nature of the songs, one of them managed to hit number one, thanks to the cocaine-fueled, undiscerning sonic landscape of the disco era. Why did Rick Dees let producers of Saturday Night Fever use "Disco Duck" in the film, but not allow it on the soundtrack? How is the tale of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde reflected in this song? What dollar amount can be put on the emotional trauma caused by parading around in a giant duck suit? All these questions and more will be answered on this week's episode of Single File. Your participation matters. Please don't forget to rate this song at!!!   Cabana Boy Studios Voicemail Hotline: 971-999-0270
