Storyline

Casey Paxton, a hopeful rock and roll star, is trying to break into the business by going from studio to studio with his girlfriend and attempting to convince the radio and TV executives there to play his song. This story is mainly just a backdrop for the movie's real aim: the presentaion of about 20 different hit songs, performed by the artists themselves. Most of the acts are relatively unknown today, but a few moderately well-known singers, like Jackie and the Raindrops, and Freddie Cannon, are also featured.

A very rare potpourri of musical acts from the 60s!
2 May 1999 | by (Suffolk, Virginia) – See all my reviews

If you're heavily influenced by endless runs of oldies playing on the radio each and every day, why not try to hunt down this little movie aptly called DISK-O-TEK HOLIDAY. Like so many rock n' roll musicals of the age, they offer a little-bitty story about boyfriends and girlfriends who are in love. The main interest is the musical numbers performed by several artists you've never quite heard of (if there is a familiar name, "Freddy And The Dreamers"). They did, after all, show off some reliable talent that once amused loyal audiences at the time. The nicest feeling about this one is the appearance of disc jockeys who announces the artist and plays the platters on the turntable (that's the way it was!). It must be one of those movies, then! I'm more familiar with "If I Had A Hammer" and "Locomotion" than anything else, but given the obscurity this title once had, the music is very creative and it sounds real good, too. Was this one destined to launch MTV? Almost! The sets are both cheap and expensive, but it sure comes close to the real thing! If I told you way back in the 70s, there would not be another poppin' movie melody like this ever again. It isn't all that special nor important, but it's now a one-of-a-kind treasure. Even the whole family can sit through this!
