Storyline

"Night Tracks" was TBS SuperStation's answer to MTV and the music-video craze of the mid-1980's. Airing on Friday & Saturday nights, it featured back-to-back videos played in marathon stretches that extended well into Sunday morning. Night Tracks differed from MTV with a more genre-diverse playlist, with an emphasis in r&b, dance-music and less-mainstream fare. A highlight of the show was that off-air vee-jay's kept chatter to a minimum. Other versions of the show included "Chart-Busters" (with a count-down format) and "Power Play", which featured the most popular chart-toppers. Written by Anonymous

Night Tracks: a weekend fixture on my tv
13 February 2004 | by (Nashville, TN) – See all my reviews

Night Tracks was a WTBS weekend show that featured the best in music videos. It began in the summer of 1983 & had quite a following for most everyone I knew at the time. This was the 80's at it's best. The show had lots of R&B, dance, new wave, & just a better selection that MTV offered at the time (or ever since for that matter). Heavy in rotation were Prince, Duran Duran, Culture Club, Kool & the Gang, Lionel Richie, the Police, David Bowie, Rick Springfield, Hall & Oates & of course Michael Jackson. It also specialized in showing lesser-known acts like Flock of Seagulls, ABC, Vanity 6, Shalamar, Squeeze, the Motels, & many others. It also featured the one-hit wonders we loved like Kajagoogoo, Dexy's Midnight Runners, Oran Juice Jones, Madness, & Musical Youth. The central advantage over MTV at the time was MUCH more R&B & far less of the heavy metal that was so "in" at the time. I had hoped that TBS would bring it back during the retro-80's hype lately but it was to no avail. The year of 2003 would have been perfect due to a twenty year anniversary theme but it never happened. As a child I looked forward to sleeping downstairs & staying up late on the weekends watching the videos. I rarely made it past 2 or 3 a.m. but it sure was fun trying!
