Remembering Roy Thode with Special Guests Scott Bromley, John Ceglia, Martin Dow, Bob Howard, Robbie Leslie & Bobby Viteriti interviewed by Marsha Stern The Heartbeat Of The Dance Floor® # 010
I am joined by Scott Bromley, John Ceglia, Martin Dow, Bob Howard, Robbie Leslie & Bobby Viteriti as we gather together to tell stories and remember the genius of Roy Thode, who was an iconic ground-breaking DJ during the heyday of Disco. From his debut in the early-70’s until his untimely passing in 1982, Roy left an indelible mark that endures today. Those techniques he employed in his craft of creating a musical journey have translated through time as today’s dance music audience enjoys a great many effects that are now made possible through technology that just didn’t exist in the analog world of Disco. However more than his technological prowess, Roy Thode is remembered as someone who touched the lives of so many, bringing fond memories to those that were a part of his culture at the time and also bringing a smile to a fresh, new audience of listeners who can experience his unique musical style through the internet. I know that is something that he would be very proud of.
