    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

    everyone

    rock on it.

    Let Rodney on the Roq host it.

    or me.
