LOLLIPOP'S ROLLER DISCO SKATING MIX '78-'79


The local teenage haunt in Norridge Village, Illinois was the Hub Axle. Known by most as the BEST ROLLERSKATING RINK EVER! To this day, I've never seen a rink that could compare to it's size. It was twice as big as it's closest competitor (Chicago's Rainbow Roller Rink on Clark Street) and it is missed and mourned by everyone who was a regular.


This mix reflects the most magical time in my life. This was when the seeds of the realization that I could mix records for a crowd were planted. Weekdays existed to only fill the void between my next visit to the rink for a speedy whip around it's glorious wood floor. We waited in long lines in 3 feet of snow to get into the Hub's disco rollerskating on Friday nights and Saturday nights. What a thrill! The energy and heat that radiated from that place literally steamed up all the windows. The fantastic lighting - awesome sound system. Brilliant!!
