It is a shame that more people didn't catch this show as it is one of the overlooked gems of television. As a kid, my parents just got me my first bass guitar for Christmas the year this came out and I was self-taught by playing along with the music from this and other television concert shows. It was really exciting for me, in the day and age before MTV, to be able to see the bands you liked playing great music. But it was also fun to have skits that were very much like Saturday Night Live, but without the heavy political and underground overtones. I would wake up Saturday mornings, plug my beginner bass into my homemade amp...waiting for that tell-tale electronics buzz to let me know I had power...and I would patiently wait for the theme song to start. I would play along with the theme song, the house band, and the musical acts like a kid possessed, not really knowing how to play music yet but doing my best to keep up! Of course, not all the bits were winners, but that could be said of any original musical/comedy/variety show, right?
