Shindig! was a rock and roll tv show that ran from September 1964 until January 1966 on the ABC network. It was the first of its kind featuring non-stop music, a house band starring Billy Preston on organ, backup singers The Blossoms featuring Darlene Love and go-go dancers accompanying most of the acts. The host was Jimmy O'Neil, a deejay from Los Angeles. Here's a terrific tv special about Shindig!.
This is a Scopitone. It's a video jukebox that was invented in France in the early 1960s and was made from surplus WWII airplane parts. They only lasted a few years. The Scopitones were the precursors to the music videos that started in the early 1980s. Bedazzled has a bunch of Scopitones. The colors were very vivid as evident in one of the most well-known Scopitones: Nancy Sinatra performing Boots!
Shake it ladies! Sexxxay!
