    Regine Zylberberg

    Jew Score:



    December 26, 1929 – May 1, 2022

    We never gave much thought to why a disco is called a disco. You know, a discotheque. Bunch of Germans in tight leather pants? Come to think of it, we obviously haven't given much thought to a disco(theque), period.

    A disco(theque) is called that because the music is played on, well, discs. It wasn't always the case. In 1953, Regine Zylberberg, a Jewish Belgian nightclub singer, became the manager of a Paris club, Whisky a Gogo. She added colored lights and a dance floor. Most importantly, she replaced jukeboxes with turntables, creating the first ever disco(theque). Regine herself worked the records, making her the first ever disco(theque) jockey. You know, a DJ.

    From Paris, disco(theques) swept through Europe and the rest of the world, eventually giving rise to disco... You know, the music.

    No, we haven't given much thought to disco, period.

    Verdict: Jew.
