The Midnight Special

When the MTV boom hit in the early 80's, non cable channels started to scramble for music programming that wasn't exclusive to the big M. One of the programs to benefit from that was The Midnight Special, a music program from the 70's and early 80's that had stopped just before MTV happened. The program had great performances by Hall & Oates, Journey, The Doobie Brothers and many others. I spent many hours watching these episodes over and over, particularly the Journey ones. It was an awesome awesome show.

This came to mind because I've been hooked on an oldie by the group 707, the song is called "I Could Be Good For You". The best video I could find online was from The Midnight Special. Check out the guitarist in this video, he goes all out on the rock guitar posturing in a way you just don't see anymore. So kick back, drink a beer and get ready to party. It's Mullet Time!
