the guy who hosted Shindig died today. he had a fascinating life

tried to burn down his own house!

shindig used both black and white performers when many did not.

and unlike many of the famous ones: it had omg live performances.

it all makes me wonder: now that MTV is all about non-musical things

why can’t there be a nightly or weekly musical performance show again

with you know REAL musicians

instead of american idols

on tv

with kids dancing around

put it on in the afternoons on like TV Land or something that has to get horrible ratings

at that hour.

and let Nicki Minaj, and Beebs and Green Day and Kendrick Lamar and


rock on it.

Let Rodney on the Roq host it.

or me.
