Midnight Special was great!
The Midnight Special was the only outlet in the 1970s (and early 1980s) where one could get a glimpse at the popular singers and bands of the time. Before videos, the Midnight Special invited current (and former) stars to come and perform \"live\" in front of their audience. When I began watching, Wolfman Jack was the lead host, but before him, many singers hosted. It was the great to stay up late and see your favorites perform their standards!
Re Midnight Special was Great
I too loved the Midnight Special, but it was not the only place to see popular music acts. There was also Don Kirshner's Rock Concert and ABCs In Concert, part of its Wide World of Entertainment.
In Concert ran on ABC on Friday Night at 11:30 pm, then I would catch the Midnight Special at 1am
