Bad Brains arrive on Night Flight Plus

We’re thrilled to add this fantastic performance from Bad Brains to Night Flight Plus.

“Live at CBGB 1982″ displays why Bad Brains became one of the most important bands in the history of American Hardcore.


On Christmas Eve 1982, Bad Brains began their three-day stint at a Hardcore Festival hosted by legendary CBGB. Watch it tonight!


Britain’s Ska Revival and Viewers Choice (1986)

“Ska is a pre-reggae Jamaican dance rhythm first popular in the 60s…” Pat Prescott explains, while introducing this very special Video Vault we just added to Plus. Tonight we all dance to a Ska beat when the vault opens to the leaders of Britain’s Ska Revival of the ’80s featuring Special AKA, Madness, Fun Boy 3, The English Beat and more.

For Part Two: Welcome back to Viewer’s Choice, where you get the videos you asked for. “We’ve got some wild requests tonight” Pat Prescott proclaims as she lists of: Zappa, The Cure, Falco (“Jeanny!!!”), Whistle, Ultravox, Shriekback and Phil Collins.

Another snapshot of music in the ’80s from the perspective of the fans, preserved forever in an episode of Night Flight. Can’t beat that – watch tonight!


Too Much Monkey Business: “Lancelot Link, Secret Chimp” & the Evolution Revolution

On the blog this week, we have a fantastic article about “Lancelot Link, Secret Chimp,” the short-lived early ’70s live-action Saturday morning comedy series, which was, as far as we know, the only TV show with a cast of chimpanzees (and one orangutan named Henry) with “dialogue” overdubbed by human actors.

Read on and if you enjoy this look back be sure to check out some of our other posts about Saturday morning TV shows from the distant past.
