Listed below are links to weblogs that reference 'Gang' of Chirpy Americanophile Schoolgirls from Italy in the 1980's sing 'Happy' disco songs about the U.S.A. Their biggest hit = "Challenger":



At least Italian radio had something to play after the shuttle blew up. The way I found out about the disaster was driving with my mom (it was a snow day in GA), and hearing the DJ come on and apologize profusely for having played a particular song just then, explaining that he had already queued it up before receiving the news bulletin. Apparently the station had been immediately stormed with complaints about his insensitivity. The song? "You Light Up My Life."

...Los Angeles disc jockey Bob Hudson (of Hudson & Landry fame, as in "Ajax Liquor Store") was canned from his SECOND job at KRLA in 1986 for joking on-the-air that the Challenger blew up because the crew started freebasing Tang. (His first canning came back in 1966, when he refused to quit plugging his record "I'm Normal," a spoof of Napoleon XIV's "They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!")...
