"Disco Demolition 7/12/79"

I sent a request to Mike Veeck asking him to tell the story on a baseball about Disco Demolition Night and this is what I got:

"In 1977 we had done a disco promo. Afterwards, we went to Millers Pub, drank and laughed about doing an anti disco night. Steve Dahl came along a couple years later and blew up a disco record on WLUP. I called and asked if he'd like to do it at Comiskey Park. 100,000 people showed up."
"What a night. After the 1st game, we put 20,000 records in a dumpster and blew them up."
"We forfeited the 2nd game and the rest is history."
