Back in 1986, Jay Levine put together this feature for ABC’s WLS-Channel 7 news.

This report includes Farley Jackmaster Funk, an original member of the Hot Mix 5 and an honorary member of the U.S. Dance Music Hall of Fame who got his start right here on WBMX.

Steve “Silk” Hurley, Farley and Danny “Sweet D” Wilson show us how it was done back in the day.

These are pioneers of electronic dance music and the people today’s biggest names emulate, even if they don’t know they’re emulating them.
