Default New guy looking for an answer

What is the name of the rock music tv show that was on late at night. I saw an infomercial a few months ago for dvd's of the show. I can't find any info. I'm an old rock fan. I still listen to my records and add to my collection occasionally. I am a huge Doobie Bros. fan and spent a lot of the 70's listening to Boston and the Elton John "Yellow Brick Road" album. Thanks, toolmanmike

The last show I saw on infomercial was The Midnight Special! That sounds like it'd be a late night show! Anyway, welcome to the forums and I look forward to seeing your regular post!

Wow! I'm shocked, toolmanmike...you're a 54 year old music fan and didn't know "Midnight Special"??? I thought everybody who grew up in the 70's with even the slightest interest in popular music watched and loved the Midnight Special. I remember staying up on Friday nights to watch it...great stuff, especially in retrospect. I've been thinking about getting those DVDs myself

I don't even know if I'm right Runtfan! I just guessed! It might be more obscure than that!

The other late night show was Don Kirshner's Rock Concert.
I used to mic the television's speaker and tape the shows.

Nah, back in the 70's there weren't alot of music shows on TV - Midnight Special and Don Kirshner's Rock Concert were the big two for live music ( mostly live anyway - as I recall there was some lip synching going on sometimes)...but Midnight Special is the one that offers all the DVDs.
