Where Did Disco Come From? | What The History?! | AMERICAN EXPERIENCE | PBS

At the height of its popularity
in 1979, disco was a four-billion-dollar industry that consistently dominated music charts and
airwaves across America. The rise of disco was so rapid, that
to many, it may have seemed like it materialized out of thin air.

In this episode of WHAT THE HISTORY?!, host Sami Jarroush answers the question: where exactly did disco come from?

This episode of WHAT THE HISTORY?! is inspired by the new AMERICAN EXPERIENCE film THE WAR ON DISCO. Watch live on your local PBS station and streaming on and the PBS App beginning Monday, October 30, 2023 at 9/8c.
