Where has the Music gone?
9 October 2006 | by (Wahiawa, HI) – See all my reviews

I happened across Vh-1's Sunday evening music video+musical guest by accident and didn't realize the value of this show soon enough to archive it on VHS soon enough. (I did put it on SuperBeta HiFi, but these tapes can't be played due to the last Sony SLH-360/600 biting the dust 5 years ago.) This series wasn't about Rock & Roll, and the studio performances were quite interesting. All good/interesting things come to an end, once music videos became passé and MTV preferred to reach only the teen audience. I pause once and a while, at MTV and VH-1 to see what non-music subjects are hip, then move on to The Discovery Channel or PBS, to hear/ see original/intelligent TV programming. I wonder if there is the equivalent of "New Visions" out there in the cable TV wasteland, overseen by say, Verve or Down Beat magazine. Naah, that would make too much sense, and confuse the 17-34 market with all this "Old People"/non-Hip Hop/Rap music. All that's left is NPR's All Things Considered PodCast, which is interesting, but visuals+music shouldn't be limited to Rock/Country/Hip Hop/Rap genres only. A dream of mine is to find that MTV decides to squeeze more money out of their vaults and issue at least one season of "New Visions."
