Disc-Jockey Twist

Disc-Jockey Twist

S. Hodge-W. Harrison
The Y plus X Publ. BMI
Bargain 5005

Bargain Records owner was Steven Hodge, a short, restless West Indian businessman, owner of Atomic Music Company, which installed and repaired jukeboxes around New York City in barbershops, restaurants and candy stores.  He also owned a real estate company called Global Realty at 275 West 125th Street, just below the Apollo, on the second floor.

Co-writer W. Harrison is indeed Wilbert Harrison  the two-hit wonder known for his 1959 chart-topper "Kansas City" and a heartwarming "Let's Work Together" a full decade later.

  1. It's really not much of a twist record, is it? More blues than dance music.
