Everybody loves a good mystery ... some of us more than others. So when Tom DesLongchamp discovered an unusual looking cassette tape in a bargain bin, and discovered a collection of unidentifiable disco songs on one side of it, his curiosity was aroused. That curiosity soon transformed into a fixation, or maybe even an obsession. 

He created a website dedicated to finding the disco mystery man. He took to Reddit, and starting pursing every lead he could think of to try and figure out who this person was. He spoke to Gabriel Spitzer about some of what he learned, some dead ends and why this matters so much to him.
