This show is a perfect example of how rock music can translate well on television. It pretty much was a German version of shows like "American Bandstand" and "Shindig". However, the thing that distinguished it from those shows was the fact that it featured an even wider variety of acts than those two shows ever did. In fact, many of the acts that appeared on the show were more suited to FM radio than the more pop oriented acts that appeared on "Bandstand". The thing that really made this show special was the fact that it featured many artists that were huge in Britain and the Continent than they were in the U.S. (eg. Family, Ginger Baker's Airforce and Man). The only thing that keeps this show from being shown in its entirety is the fact that it is done almost entirely in German. Fortunately, the "Let it Rock" DVD series and VH-1 Classic show highlights from this very special show.
