The Hitman and Her (especially once house music hit big). I especially liked the camera crew's love of sweeping up-skirt dancing girls. Peter Waterman's out of place suit looked great during the later years of the show (as everyone else in the various clubs were off their tits on E).

Countdown (1974-1987) was the best music show on Oz tv. Ian "Molly' Meldrum was a hoot, and always got the great exclusive interviews back in the 80s eg. Madonna, David Bowie etc

Countdown (Australia)- Molly Meldrum Interviews David Bowie- Humdrum- November 6, 1983

Hollywood Palace.
I watch clips on YouTube from time to time and it seemed really good. They had a guest host eveey week, usually a comic. So no bland guys like Ed Sullivan or Don Cornelius.

I don't know, Don was kinda hyper and dressed flashy in the very early episodes. I think the shorter his hair got, the more low key he became. lol But maybe a loud Richard Simmons type of host is not what the average viewer wants. 2 of the longest running shows were hosted by Ed Sullivan & Lawrence Welk. I'd say Dick Clark & Casey Kasem were calm type of guys too. Wolfman Jack was maybe more lively and he spoke in jive talk. I remember Nia Peeples had a show, don't remember what it was called though. I also remember that old lady that always sat in the front row on Showtime At The Apollo. One time Whodini was on the show and she got up and rubbed on Ecstasy, I never forgot the expression on his face. lol

It's called show business for a reason. It’s 90% business and 10% show. If you don’t know your business, you’re in trouble! ~ Johnnie Taylor / We can't be Phil Collins & The Genesis! You don't even play drums! ~ Ricky Bell to Ralph Tresvant

I used to watch Soul Train and American Bandstand every Saturday. It was exciting whenever a Minneapolis-related act performed like André Cymone or Ta Mara and The Seen.

As for music video shows, I used to live for 120 Minutes in college.

But from what I have heard, the U.K. had the best music shows.

I still have Ta Mara and the Seen's "Affection" in my iTunes. That joint STILL bumps hard after 30 years, too. In fact, I just might have to listen to that before I hit the sack. music Beyond that, I literally forgot that 120 Minutes ever existed eek . I need to look for some youtube clips to see if I can catch any favorite memories from that..
