    "That 70's Show" debuts on USA Dance Mix

    Our 40 YEARS OF DANCE format that we pioneered (currently 1977-2017) is doing quite well. So what to do with 1976, that would be year 41 (we play about 25 songs from 1976). Those songs have resulted in a new show (our only program change since our debut almost 3 years ago). “That 70’s Show” is now heard Sunday nights 9-midnight Eastern. At first we only considered Disco & Dance songs outside our 40 year range for the program, but the late 70’s were a goldmine for Disco & Dance music as it slowly took over Top-40 Radio. Thus we decided to include 1977-1979 tracks as well.

    Every Sunday night listeners can enter the twilight zone and relive the 1979 Dance/Club radio scenes. Our playlists for the show is 21 hours long!!! So what does that mean? It means the show will have lots of variety. You may hear Chic’s “Good Times” one week and not again for several weeks. This will not be the same 40 songs over and over.

    ******You might think USA Dance Mix is just an oldies station but we're not. About 60% of our tracks are from the years 2000+.

    Our daily schedule: Mon. (less oldies, newer sounds), Tue. & Thur. (more Funk & Soul Crossover in the mix), Wed. (mostly female artists and vocals), Fri. till noon (Dance songs with “Love” in the title), Fri. noon-9pm Sun. (the best of the best), That 70’s Show (Sun. 9-midnight).

    Aren't you afraid of getting sued for using that title?

    Not really, just 3 words from the dictionary, does anybody "own" them? The music is from the 70's and it's a show, case closed.

    Just three words that evoke a very successful TV series. You could have called it The 70s Show, to avoid an issue. But you chose to use THAT for some reason. Doesn't matter to me. Tell it to the judge.

    But he could call it "Kung Fu Fighting" or "Muskrat Love" if he wants to because, while titles of TV shows can be copyrighted, song titles cannot. Or does that only apply to song titles reused on later songs, not repurposed as titles of any other thing? I suspect the former, because "One Day at a Time" was both a well-known song and TV series and they had nothing to do with each other.

    You can't copyright a song title with regards to other songs. That's why we can have lots of songs with the same title.

    But if I name a restaurant after a song, that becomes an issue.

    So the producers of "One Day at a Time," the series, had to work out a deal with the publisher of "One Day at a Time," the '70s country hit, in order to name their show?

    I'm still stuck on the first sentence. Did you really pioneer the format?

    This is too funny. I suppose he refers to 'being the 1st to rotate 40 years of dance music?' ....Sure its his idea, because everybody else knows its a bad one. Plus, he is safe with the title, because its far too low on the radar to even be noticed
