The Midnight Special or Don Kirshner's Rock Concert? I think Rock Concert was better,the Music performances were much better than the Midnight Special.

I watched both depending on who the guests were. Haven't thought about those shows for a long time! They were a lot of fun to watch.

ABC's "In Concert" was even better.

Actually I can think of two better....

"Dolly" was Dolly Parton's 70's syndicated music show ( no relation to the bomb of the 80's ) despite Dolly Parton being associated with country music ( even though at the time her "Here You Come Again" was a big pop hit ), Dolly's show featured mostly rock acts. I can remember seeing KC & The Sunshine Band as well as Wild Cherry being on the show.

then there was Bob McAllister's "Wonderama". The first American TV show to have given us ABBA !! Michael Jackson and the Jacksons, The Bee Gees, Bo Donaldson & The Heywoods, Elton John, Captain & Tenille, Leo Sayer,The Silvers, Starbuck, Starland Vocal Band and so many more had made appearances on this show. What makes this an "odd" pick was that Wonderama was a KIDS show and was only seen in a handful of cities ( New York, Boston, Washington-Baltimore-Richmond, Cincinatti, Kansas City, The Twin Cities and LA )

Default 70s music programs

I wish they would re-peat those shows on cable. I am sure they would be popular. I am so sick of the crap on now, especially late at night.

I would also like to see The Old Grey Whistle Test. That had a lot of great acts on from out of Britain.

The Dolly Parton-Porter Waggoner show was great,My Late Grandma's favorite. When My parents went out,Granny babysitted Me and My Brother and we watched Porter and Dolly. Unfortunately we had to watch Lawrence Welk afterwards

Don Kirshners Rawk Concert, loved the parodies they did on SNL.

Haven't thought of Wonderama in ages, I liked that show. Thought it had good music...didnt realize the caliber of bands they had at the time.
