When David Essex, an enthusiastic fan of "Rock Concert", appeared on the show to do a live version of his hit song "All The Fun Of The Fair", the lyrics were "live" as well - Essex added a triumphant cry of "DON KIRSHNER!!!" to the song's introduction. See more »
In the days before MTV, this show along with "American Bandstand" and "The Midnight Special" was the only way for most fans of rock and r&b fans to see many of their favorite artists without going to a concert. Despite the boring intros by Don Kirschner (who acted as not only producer, but occasionally as host as well) this was one of the finest teen oriented shows on television. What made it especially great was that unlike "Bandstand", most of the bands actually performed live and didn't have to resort to the practice of lip synching. This show will always be one of the few bright spots of the 1970's music scene.
