    Behind The Music

    Behind The Music

    VH1
    "Behind The Music" chronicles the personal lives of many of the most popular musical acts of the rock era, and occasionally strays into related subjects, such as Woodstock, Hair and radio pioneer Alan Freed, as well as 'year' episodes, which tell the events and issues of certain years through the music of the time. The series was born following the success of a VH1 documentary about heroin abuse. The producers strictly follow a policy of having complete cooperation from their subjects, even when delving into embarrassing issues, which prevents the show from falling into the pitfall of tabloid sleaze. They hunt down possible interviewees, sometimes using detectives, and ask direct, probing questions, which prompt revealing, and brutally honest (we hope) responses. Nominated for the Emmy for Outstanding Non-Fiction Series for four consecutive years, BTM has established a rigid formula. We explore humble beginnings, meteoric rises, major setbacks, personal struggles, crippling vices, devasting falls, and climaxes that include revivals, deaths, and career changes. Unfortunately (for us), success has crept in. As BTM became VH1's top-rated show, it also has become a vehicle for commercialism. In 2000, the market was flooded with BTM books, CD's, and videos, and the recording industry started to realise the direct influence the show has on music sales. Vanilla Ice reportedly sold four times more albums after his episode aired, and many back catalogue sales have increased. So the later episodes have veered away from the 'classic' artists, and feature trendy, marketable newer acts. Hence, there sometimes is precious little drama to the artists' stories, and the series has turned rather uneven. Still, there is an occasional worthy tale, though VH1 produces only three or four new episodes per season these days. It's sister show, "VH1's Storytellers", has also been revived .moreless

    MTV Unplugged

    MTV Unplugged

    Follow
    MTV - Music Television
    The idea of Unplugged is that bands perform only acoustical and without any electronically devices. So this term usually only applies to music bands or performers that usually don't perform unplugged. Many performers fought with a performance the judgment that they actually can't play and computers and machines produce the entire sound. The origin of the idea isn't absolutely clear. There are only concerts in the unplugged style, but who really invented it, is unclear. The first concert you could describe as unplugged was Elvis Presley's concert in 1968 today known as the 68 Comeback Special. As inventors Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora get named, because they performed with only with two guitars at the MTV Music Awards in 1989 the tracks Wanted Dead Or Alive und Livin' On A Prayer. So the Unplugged series started soon later in 1989. Jules Shear hosted the first season, with was produced as 30 minute short "concerts", in an absolute simple way. The artists sitting in a half circle, maybe some background musicians behind them and playing their music in a small location, styled almost like a café. The second season was basically the same concept, but the duration now changes and MTV Unplugged leaves the US for the first time and goes to the UK. Also there isn't any host from now on. The bands announce themselves. The third season was the last one really organized as season. The ending of this season with the session of Bruce Springsteen also change the image of the series, because he performs plugged instead of unplugged. Season four starts with a big surprise: The first session with no English speaking band: Roxette! Season four already takes on the character this series will have in all other seasons from now on. It isn't a series anymore it's an idea. All sessions are a project to fallow this idea. In this context MTV invites comedians for the Spoken Word I session. A basically non musical session, but season four ends with a big bang. The Nirvana unplugged session makes this show part of music history. Nirvana doesn't perform a completely unplugged session, because Kurt Cobain uses some electronic sampler in the background. The discussion if this performance can be counted as unplugged doesn't hurt the success in any way. In season five, MTV Latin America starts recoding performances in the US starting with episode eight of this season. MTV US also airs these sessions. Season six and seven are basically the same like season five – they write the story of the show even further. With season eight the seasons aren't organized in the usual TV year rhythm anymore. Instead of the summer till summer schedule and the fact that it isn't a series anymore, the schedule now works similar to the usual calendar from 1.1 till 12.31. In 1998 the big break comes. MTV only produces one session and the series is basically dead. In 1999 the show is basically reborn, because now every characteristics of a series were now gone and every single session is a project by its own and is produced and released as such. Season 11 in 2000 features only one session again, basically because the time spirit works against the show concepts – the IT boom and the ultimate believe in the new millennium makes this show look spare. The first year in the new millennium the show starts over once more. More globally than ever the show starts with three Latin American performances before two US performances fallow and the year ends over in Asia, but visited Europe first. From now on the number of sessions produced in one year goes down dramatically. Season 13 features only three sessions, season 14 and 15 only one. In 2005 the show comes back form Europe to the US after three years absence with one other big performance. This time it's Alicia Keys who gives the show a new boost. ------------------------------------------- Notes to this show guide: Seasons: 1-8 are numbered as regular seasons. 9+ are organized annually, because of this shows character. Episodes: Numbered according to the original air dates (where ever that was). The show: The show isn't only the US series, since this is a global series since the beginning. Many episodes helped to build up MTV stations in many countries, sessions where produced. So this guide lists all sessions, not only the US ones. So the guide has more seasons and episodes than can be found in other guides. So don't be confused about that.moreless

    Welcome to The Lawrence Welk Show guide at TV.com.

    The Lawrence Welk Show was good old fashioned family entertainment at its best with all kinds of music, particularly from the Big Band Era. The show had a close-knit group of singers, dancers, and musicians known as the "Musical Family."

    The Lawrence Welk Show made its national television debut on July 2, 1955. It was originally filmed in black and white and then it went into color September 18, 1965. The show was on Saturday nights on ABC until 1971 when the network canceled the show; that year, it went into first-run syndication with new episodes being produced until 1982. Reruns began airing until 1983. There were also two Christmas reunion specials, in 1984 and 1985.

    On October 3, 1987, reruns of the The Lawrence Welk Show began airing on PBS, where they continue to air to this day. These shows were hosted by members of the Musical Family until the 2005 season, when Mary Lou Metzger interviewed former members of the Musical Family after each show.

But in 1984, NBC canned the series and the show moved to syndication for four more years. The show was popular although NBC cancelled it.

    MTV - Music Television (ended 2008)
    Total Request Live (commonly known as TRL) is a television program on MTV that features popular music videos. The program plays the top ten most requested videos of the day, as requested by viewers who can vote by phone or online. The countdown starts with the tenth most requested video and ends with the most requested. The program generally airs every weekday for one hour. The roots of TRL go back to 1997 when MTV began producing MTV Live (originally hosted by British VJ Toby Amies) from a studio in Times Square in New York. MTV Live featured celebrity interviews, musical performances, and regular news updates. Music videos were not the major focus of the program. During the same time period, MTV aired a countdown show simply called Total Request, hosted by Carson Daly. Total Request was far more subdued, as Daly introduced music videos from an empty, dimly lit set. As the show progressed and gained more momentum with viewers tuning in, it was soon added to the list of daytime programming during MTV's Summer Share in Seaside Heights, New Jersey. The countdown would end up being one of the most watched and most interactive shows in recent MTV history that summer, proving that it had potential to become an even larger success by combining with the element of live television. By the fall of 1998, MTV producers decided to merge the real-time aspect of MTV Live and the fan-controlled countdown power of Total Request into Total Request Live, which made its official premiere from the MTV Studios in New York on September 14, 1998. The show has since grown to become MTV's unofficial flagship program. The widely known acronym of TRL was adopted as the official title of the show in February 1999, after former VJ's Carson Daly and Dave Holmes began using it on air regularly. The program is now rarely, if not ever, referred to as its original title Total Request Live. TRL spent its first year developing a cult-type following, by spring 2000 the countdown reached its peak, becoming a very recognizable pop culture icon in its first two years of existence; however, its influence seems to have greatly diminished since. TRL is MTV's prime outlet for music videos nowadays as the network continues to concentrate on reality-based programming. In addition to the music videos, TRL has daily guests as it is a popular promotion tool used by many musicians, actors, and other celebrities to promote their newest works to the show's target teen audience. Music videos that air on TRL are subject to a general "retirement" rule, that they may only remain on the countdown for a limited amount of days, the current cap is 50 days (previously 65, this number was reduced in 2002 in order to promote more diversity and give other artists a chance to enter the top ten). Artists who do manage to hang onto the countdown and reach retirement are awarded with a plaque, commemorating their achievement. On October 23, 2002, TRL celebrated its 1,000th episode. The show reached its seventh anniversary in September 2005, maintaining its stake as MTV's longest-running live program. In 2003, Carson Daly stepped down as the host of TRL in order to host NBC's Last Call. The show is currently hosted by a revolving door of VJs including Damien Fahey, Hilarie Burton, Quddus, La La Vasquez, Vanessa Minnillo, and Susie Castillo. On November 16, 2008 after 10 years on the air, TRL ended with a three hour long farewell celebration. Joining the party, were many famous celebrities, who helped define TRL, stopping by to reflect on their favorite TRL moments and also returning were the show's hosts throughout the years including Carson Daly.moreless

    Wellspring Media
    Joseph Campbell: Mythos is a multi-part documentary television series consisting of lectures by Joseph Campbell, which originally ran on PBS for 4 seasons, totaling 20 episodes, and was produced by the Joseph Campbell foundation. The series investigates popular myths, delving into surprising facts about the human mythic impulse in terms of psychology, ethnology, and comparative mythology. In the last 6 years of his life, Campbell delivered these lectures to share his life’s findings about the subject of myths, a phenomenon that has been around for all of recorded human existence. Campbell discusses why myths exist, how they differ, but also resemble one another, across cultures, and what they did to shape mindsets and civilization. He discusses why certain myths took on different forms and played more heavily with certain themes at different times, as well as why myths are important at all. Joseph Campbell: Mythos varies along three major themes: the shaping of our mythic tradition, the shaping of eastern tradition, and the shaping of western tradition. For an informative lecture series about a fascinating topic, check out PBS’s Joseph Campbell: Mythos.moreless
