Ahh… the 1970’s were a fun decade filled with music and flamboyant fashion. Whether you were there to enjoy them in person or were born later, it’s great to take a trip back in time and enjoy the era.
Variety shows were popular on TV and there was one that stood out as being a late night must-see for music lovers.
The Midnight Special was first seen in 1972 and became a regular series that aired on Friday nights after The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. The show featured live musical performances from popular artists and kept people up and watching TV after midnight.
The DVD collection really is a treasure. I am amazed at how many huge artists performed live on the late night show. We can watch specials with current artists, but there is nothing like this today. I am thoroughly enjoying the music that I still love and the over the top fashions that were considered perfectly normal back in the day.
