This was a stunt orchestrated by the Detroit, MI, hard rock radio station WRIF for see above. DREAD members pledged as follows:
"I will never wear platform shoes.
I will never wear zodiac jewelry.
I will never listen to disco records and/or disco stations.
Silk dresses and three piece suits are extremely suspect.
A violation of any of these conditions is punishable by 'THE CHAIR'."
I did have a DREAD card in my youth. (If I still had it I could have made a fortune on ebay.)
