Disco was dominant in the late '70s and it seemed like everyone was dancing.

All-disco stations sprung up and playlists of many a Top 40 station were top-heavy with dance music.

But musical fads only last so long. The public's love affair with disco faded in the early '80s as other styles of music took hold.

WNBC jumped on the disco bandwagon for a while as you'll hear on this aircheck of Michael Sarzynski. He spend four years at WNBC beginning in 1978. Sarzynski also jocked at WFIL Philadelphia, WKPQ Pittsburgh,
WKXW Trenton, N.J., and WILK Wilkes-Barre, Pa. He died in 1998.
