You Tube Mania

Gabba gabba hey, we accept you, we accept

OK, you've noticed we've been posting up a lot of You Tube clips on Fridays.

A lot of other sites (Eschaton) digs up crap and torments people. I want to dig up gold and share it. Live performances forgotten about or rarely seen after MTV.

I dug up 70's performers tonight in honor of the Police reunion at the Grammies.

My point is that this is an untapped resource, and should be used as such, not just for jokes.

Now, the majority so far have been rock clips, but we'll expand into classic country and jazz and blues.


Because we're sitting on a gold mine
