DENIS LEPAGE (April 30, 1948 - August 21, 2023)

Tragic to loose one of Montreal's music giants. DENIS LEPAGE would marry DENYSE LEPAGE and form the MONTREAL SOUND supergroup LIME. The group's name inspired by Montreal's legendary Disco called the Limelight at 1245 Stanley Street. By the early 1980's, LIME would become one of the most popular DISCO groups in the world pushing the popularity of the unique MONTREAL SOUND music to distant continents. His writing and production of "The Break" by KAT MANDU, "Dancin' The Night Away" by VOGGUE, and "Hit'n Run Lover" by CAROL JIANI are the best examples of a DENIS LEPAGE midas touch. In late years DENIS LEPAGE would enter the LGBTQ2+ world! He came out to be transgender, singing under the alias NINI NO BLESS. The picture supplied is a NINI NO BLESS photo! We are featuring some of that material also!

first heard 'The Break' by Katmandu at a American Football game in Nebraska in 1979. I searched for it before hearing it on this show in the 1990's. Drag that the guy passed,

With all this wonderful dance music, a few beers - and for some reason, making french frites?!? - feel like namedropping a bit. I also worked with Maurice and Larry at Isba, Guido Diodati, Ivan Pavlin, Daniel Desnoyers, Mario Tremblay (MC), Cussy....so many more. But my favorite dance music moment working in the music industry was the Boogie Wonder Band record launch at the (ressurected) Limelignt on Stanley street when Martin Stevens got up on stage to sing Love Is In The Air- and we didnt know about it!!! The place was packed! It was steaming! It was incredible!!! Forever moment!!! Thanks Elorious for bringing th├Ęse memories back!
