I remember that the late FM "counterculture" Detroit radio station WABX used to have a program that aired on the evening/weekend during the early 70s, on one of the UHF channels, perhaps being WPBS channel 56, where they would show portions of old movies without their soundtracks, and instead would use rock music as the audio background, for an effect similar to the recently ballyhooed Pink Floyd DSOTM/Wizard Of Oz audio/video synchronization.
Is there any DYesers here that remember it, as well as what the name/title was of that TV program?

You may be remembering Detroit's forerunner to MTV- 'C Sharp' which was on the first channel 62, WXON ?, when their studios were in Walled Lake.
I remember the 'party atmosphere' in the studio being shown along with movie clips. Ha- still remember when they showed cannibal horror movie clips while "We're So Sorry Uncle Albert" played.
I don't think there was any connection to WABX.

I was going to ask that question on the Vintage Detroit TV and Movie Board website if no one here responded.

Anybody remember Doug Podell and "The Beat"?
I believe it aired in the early '80s on Friday nights at 11.
New music videos on over-the-air TV?

I edited a program on WXYZ about 1985 called "Video Cafe". We aired music videos and the stereo audio was simulcast on sister station WRIF.
