Night Tracks

Fishbone - Modern Industry

Usually being the one guilty of posting video clips on D+R, I'm going to follow Mr. Jalopy's recent glut of embeds as tacit permission to go overboard with more. Before we got the MTV in the very rural area where I grew up, Night Tracks, which aired on WTBS in the early 80's, was my lifeline to music videos. My older brother would tape the show which ran in the wee hours of the morning, and I'd watch the tapes the next day. For better or worse, these are some videos that I remember best from that time, when I couldn't wait to watch what had been recorded the night before.

Randy Andy (with Herb Alpert's nephew, I'm told) - People Livin' in the USA

Styx - Music Time

King - Love and Pride

Polyrock - Romantic Me
