Every memorable song, every cheesy dance routine and every feel-good sing-along from the past 40 years is played live by our resident DJ and broadcast through our screen. Each decade is introduced by 'the Doc' our time traveling party-starter who'll give you on-screen instructions that'll help you figure out your Macarena from your Harlem Shuffle.
