One-time Denverite Ethel Merman released a disco album in 1979 on A&M Records.

The Ethel Merman Disco Album came out in 1979. The genre was declared dead a year later. We can't say if that's Ethel's fault. We can say the Broadway belter lived in Metro Denver in the 1950s. She was married to the CEO of Continental, Bob Six. The airline was headquartered here. Merman performed at Red Rocks with the Denver Symphony Orchestra at one point. We sample a remix of "There's No Business Like Show Business."
