New on Night Flight Plus

For tonight’s Night Flight Originals, we start with a “Take Off” to LA Rock.

Since the ‘60s, LA’s been a mecca for the music industry. Night Flight brings us up to date (1987) with LA’s bustling music scene that finds us watching videos from The Untouchables in their award-winning video for “Free Yourself,” Oingo Boingo, Concrete Blonde, Suicidal Tendencies, and Thelonius Monster. Start watching tonight!

Sports… Rock!

For part two tonight we take a look at a strange phenomenon of the 80s: Sports Rock! “Today’s fitness craze even spreads to rock,” Pat Prescott declares, as she introduces the first videos, including the Los Angeles Rams’ theme song, questionably named “Let’s Ram It,” and The Chicago Bears’ “Super Bowl Shuffle.”

Both worth the price of admission alone.

The wrestling mania of the ’80s peaked with this Allstar line up known simply as The Wrestlers.

“Land of A Thousand Dances,” the euphoric, almost mystical work from seminal 1985 album The Wrestling Album, will go down in history as an icon of the vibrant period we now refer to as the Rock ’n’ Wrestling connection.

This is Night Flight, pure and true. Thank you for watching!

TV PARTY 12

RIP Glenn O’Brien

“In 1978, two revolutionary trends emerged in New York City, public access cable TV and punk rock. These two phenomena came together spectacularly in Glenn O’Brien’s TV Party.”TV Party: The Documentary

When we started Night Flight Plus last year, TV Party was one of the things we were most excited to launch with. It was like a long lost cousin to Night Flight, and we were thrilled to be able to honor it on our platform.

Today, we were saddened to learn that creator Glenn O’Brien passed away.

I know this weekend we’ll be watching our TV Party Collection, which includes multiple episodes and the seminal documentary. We hope you can join us. Read more here.
