[SYNCHOPHONIC ORCHESTRA] It is brilliant, AND bizarre. My opinion is those work very well in the same sentence.

Alec R. Costandinos is no doubt a great disco hero to me. From his involvement in Love In C Minor,to his brilliant releases under his Love & Kisses moniker on the Casablanca and Film-works label. What amazes me about him is the complexity and 48 multitrack mixdowns where he has the gift to balance all and make it sound all like one .... Just amazing... A real hero from The City of Lights in France.. Peace Out TEKNOBRAT

Morris Stapleton
you should put this show on youtube. It is that good.

11:39 PM, June 28th, 2014
Elorious Cain (host)
Mr Stapleton, Firstly - I have no idea how to do that. Secondly - This is available on demand through ckcufm.com for the next few months. I don't know if the station would allow it on youtube.

Great show as always and keep up the great work.

I collected A.R.Costandinos and I never heard some of this stuff. Good research.

Melvin
You managed well

Simon in Newcastle
My difficulty with this show is that you couldn't play more of his super amazing traks like C Minor and Winds of Change yet you did play all of lesser known or liked traks. The show is done well all the same.

Morvis Otman
A very balanced rep of the man's work and few people have the knowledge or belief. Keep up the good work.

Simon - I agree with you. I almost feel that I should have made this tribute into a 3 part series so that I could have played all of gems like "Love In C Minor". There are also compositions like "Simon Peter" by Sphinx and "Black Is Black" from the Love In C Minor lp that should have been featured. Listening to this show again, I think that I didn't emphasize the importance of Alec R. Costandinos enough.

What a wonderful tribute to one of disco's true heroes. Nobody has ever matched AR's production brilliance.
