Denizens of disco in PPV blast from past

Disco and pay-per-view television — both of which live on seemingly in spite of themselves — join hands for the first time in “Disco Explosion ’98,” a three-hour blast of 1970s rhythmic urgency coming to several PPV services the evening of Jan. 9 for the relatively modest retail pricetag of $14.95.

For just under 15 bucks, you get a virtual all-star lineup of aging disco superstars, including KC and the Sunshine Band, Donna Summer, Sister Sledge, Chaka Khan, Evelyn “Champagne” King and the Trammps. However, all the performances have been pretaped — sometime during this decade — at the Glam Slam Club in South Beach, Fla.
