Wired for Sound

One of my irregular features is a series of descriptions of places in Springfield over the years. Tonight we add another to my Places of Springfield page.

Wired for Sound

Wired for Sound – There were many clubs in Springfield over the years, from the Blue Orchid to Inferno, they tended to come and go, much the way real clubs go in and out of fashion. Wired for Sound was a disco and was featured in the opening credits of the early 1980s. The following information was shared in Noteworthy Performances by Naomoi Rabinsowitz find the rest of her article in the January 4, 2011 issue of Soap Opera Digest.
Springfield’s reel-life club, Wired for Sound, was the site of many real-life musical performances in the early 1980s. Among the acts who stopped by in 1982 were Neil Sedaka, The B-52s, Ashford & Simpson and Dreamgirls sensation Jennifer Holiday. Sedaka agreed to guest-star in honor of his family’s housekeeper Mary, who was a huge GL fan – and got her a part as an extra in a party scene on the day that he aired.
