I have a real embarrasing photo of me when I was a child - wearing a chunky-knit sweater (knitted by my grandmother no doubt - but not for me, but a much larger, fatter, imaginary sibling) and Bay City Rollers trousers, complete with tartan turn-ups and pocket trim.

At least, I hope that I have it.... AAAARGHHH! Where's that damn picture go??

I can sense blackmail coming down.... [Frown]

Don't be embarrassed Paul, everyone else was wearing the same outfit...You just are man enough to admit it, and I commend you for that. I thought the Bay City Rollers were hot!

Nope, that was my first training bra and underwear set, and I showed everybody, I didn't care, my Grandma got them for me. I do have the picture, I am lifting up my "Greenpeace" t-shirt and flashing everyone. That is a one time experience on my part too. I would kill to have my purple cow underwear, and my Donny Osmond purple socks!

Oh, I take that back...when I was 16..my Grandparents were putting an indoor pool in their home, and before they put the building up-the pool went in first, and was filled, and it just so happened to be November, and freezing cold, and my Grandma said she'd give me $5 to dive in the pool, so I did it, in just my undergarments, and they took my picture doing that too.. I must have had a lot of guts back then, or maybe no brains at all. Which ever. So, there are pictures of me too, floating around, that I would like to forget about.

I'll probably get arrested for even thinking this, but if you ever feel like swapping....

You are talking about what is known as the "prime-time music-variety shows". Other shows like that would be The Ed Sullivan Show, The Carol Burnett Show, Hee-Haw, Tony Orlando & Dawn, The Mandrell Sisters, etc.

Around 1987, Dolly Parton tried to revive the format by hosting her own show on ABC-TV. But it flopped, and last for only one year.

The last fairly decent music-variety show on network TV was "The Tracey Ullman Show" in the late 80's/early 90's.

Nowadays, music singers/bands come in all sorts of backgrounds, genres, and styles. Some artists don't want to be lumped into a certain group, while others don't want to appear on the same program with another act with a totally different style/genre.

I am convinced that the musical-variety shows on prime-time network TV is pretty much dead, and it is not likely to return. I would say the main reason for that is Cable-TV. TV programming has now become more specialized, that a general all-purpose music-variety show would not work today.

Also, I think the audience is more jaded, and more cynical now. A musical-variety show just isn't going to bring in as much people as it once did.

The only exception in this case might be the "talent shows" such as "American Idol", etc., that might be compared to the old "Star Search" show from the 80's.

"Saturday Night Live" doesn't count as a musical-variety show because it is on late-night and there is a guest (not permanent) host. Also, they specialize in more of comedy sketches, and not music numbers.

Late-night talk-shows with musical acts (ex: Leno, Letterman, Carson Daly, Jimmy Kimmel, etc.) don't count as "music-variety" acts either, because they are mostly interview and chat shows.

I should put my Underoo picture on here, nobody would ever know me, we should all get out old pictures, and stick on here, I just don't know how to. Paul why would you get arrested?????


I hate shows like American Idol, I have never watched an episode of that ever. I miss Real People, and That's Incredible, those shows are cool. They do a new version of Dance Fever, it was awful, people can't dance either any more, when was the last time you've seen a man and a woman dance in a nice outfit, and actually dance, not look like they are doing something else..that's all dancing is now.

I loved when John Travolta and Madeline Smith danced in Urban Cowboy! I love that movie.

I just thought of another..ummmm...VARIETY SHOW? PINK LADY AND JEFF which is heralded as one of the worst tv shows of all time. Anyone ever see it? I caught an episode about a month ago on cable and it is as bad as they say! If not worse! Deborah Harry was the musical guest and even HER segment sucked!
