     This is mainly for us old folks....back in the 50's, into the 60's, many local markets had their own music programs, a'la BANDSTAND, which itself started as a local show.

     In Cleveland we had THE BIG 5 SHOW, renamed UPBEAT after it went into national syndication....

     Did you rock to local music shows like this?

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

When I was living in Minneapolis back in '80-'81, I remember seeing the Blue Jean Network (which was actually from Chicago I guess).  I'm pretty sure that was my first introduction to music videos.

Not really a music show, but when I was a kid there was a program on Sunday mornings in Massachusetts called "Community Auditions."  It was sort of like a cheesy, local version of "America's Got Talent."  Sarah Silverman actually got her start on that show.  Anyway, I really hated the show . . . they'd have everything from singing to tap dancing to baton twirling . . . just about anything.  It was almost like watching a telethon without the money-raising part.  Here's a taste of it:
