OMG. What year was that??? That little girl in the foreground to the far left - the one with the go-go boots doing the Pony? That SO could have been me. Except I didn't live in Chicago.

Too funny!

I think those guys might have been the first lip-synchers. Notice how none of the instruments are plugged in to anything and the drummer wasn't actually hitting his drums. The band members also had blank looks on their faces as if they were somehow confused about how their career had brought them to sing in front of a bunch of kids. It couldn't have helped their careers. It was all a slightly odd combination of factors going on in that video. Very strange! Plus - what is with the weird outfits the band was wearing?

Suzi you never cease to amaze me.I never know what you're going to put up here. How did you find that? Those children are sooo cute doing their little 60's dance.

OH MY GOD!!! This is priceless!! It got me thinking. I wonder if I can find any old Soupy Sales videos? I went to his show and I was on Romper Room. I know some of those tapes must still exist. What about the Bozo Show? My all time favorite was Howdy Dowdy. You might be too young to remember that. I never got to meet "him". I was on "Milky the Clown" show. That was a local thing. I never went to any "Go Go" Dance shows, but one of my mother's husbands got us a spot on "Soul Train". My mother nixed that invitation. Hmmmmmmm LOL LOL LOL. I just love stuff like this. :-)

This must have been about 1965 or66! I was about the age of these kids then, too! This was one of my favorite bands as they did "I Will Always Think About You", a beautiful break-up song. The band is wearing outfits not uncommon at that time (think Paul Revere and the Raiders featuring Mark Lindsey). I think most bands at that time lip synched for tv like this show. I can't believe they played for a kid show. Now, check out Shindig or Hullabaloo for some really cool stuff!
I can't believe you found this!
