This weekend’s installment of The Progressive Underground will be a special “THESCENE Tribute and Takeover edition.” During the 1970s and 1980s, THESCENE dance show featured the hottest Detroit area dancers, along with local and national recording artists.

Morris and the crew will “takeover” the Progressive Underground and change the name of MOTOWN to GEEKTOWN playing music popularized on THESCENE in addition to sharing reflections and discussing the show’s impact on the Detroit music and cultural communities.
It will truly be a night of music, memories and more! The action takes place this Sunday, December 4, 8-11 pm EST on 101.9 WDETand wdet.org.
