Don Kirshner's Rock Concert
I could never wait until this TV show came on every week. It was broadcast late Saturday night when all your parents were in bed and all us young music lovers were looking for the best new musical performances.
As the above video testifies to the validity of this show, you just never knew what band would show up next. The next video is actually a bit of a guilty pleasure for me. ABBA was great at creating that wall of sound and catchy melodic hook.
Each week brought a new live concert like the following.
Kirshner actually had a long line of artists who wanted to appear on the show at scale, which was much less than they would get normally, but they knew what the exposure would do for their careers.
Let us know what your favorite Rock Concert performance was.
