“Take Off To Music Videos”: Lol Creme and Kevin Godley (originally of the band 10cc) discuss the videos they created for Visage, The Police, Herbie Hancock (the excellent robotics video for “Rockit”), the uncensored Night Flight favorite “Girls on Film” for Duran Duran and gorgeous video for their own song “Cry.”

For Part 2 of this special, Night Flight takes off to the work of Academy Award winning Polish director Zbigniew Rybczyński, featuring the surreal, groundbreaking classics of the music video art he created for Art Of Noise, Chuck Mangione, Grandmaster Flash, and mysterious Columbia Records supergroup Iam Siam.
