WRCR carried the Lillian Roxon "Diskotique" program in the Spring semester of 1971. Each program ran about 60 seconds. It was broadcast twice a day Monday through Friday.
The following was excerpted from the Wikipedia ( site:

In the mid-1960s Roxon became fascinated by pop music and the rise of groups like The Beatles, The Byrds and The Rolling Stones and she began to write regular articles on the subject. Through her writings and her interest in pop, she became one of the leading lights of the social and musical scene that centered on the fabled New York music club "Max's Kansas City", which was frequented by members of the Andy Warhol circle, Lou Reed and The Velvet Underground, Jim Morrison and many others.

Her articles about the burgeoning rock scene are now credited as being foundation stones of serious rock writing, and she has since been described by other leading critics as "The Mother Of Rock". During 1968-1969 Roxon was commissioned to write what became the world's first rock encyclopedia, published in late 1969 and the work for which she is best remembered. It was extremely successful, is still regarded as a landmark in popular music writing and is often quoted.

In the early 1970s Roxon's profile expanded and she became more widely known for her feminist views. During 1971 she hosted a rock radio show that was syndicated to 250 stations.

Roxon's health declined during the early Seventies. Lillian Roxon died at the age of 41 on 10 August 1973, after suffering a severe asthma attack.
