remember Swingin' Time, on CKLW TV during the late 60s? I used to dance on there as a regular, you know, one of the teenagers boogying on the raised platforms. the boogaloo, the pearl, the monkey, the jerk...what I wouldn't give for some video of that show! looks like an outfit called Research Video has the rights, and is only working with production companies (that's what the web site says). anyone have ideas? any other Swingin' Time veterans out there?

I know that Robin Seymour apologized for having The Mothers of Invention appear on Swingin' Time. He was probably fore-warned not to invite The Fugs.

We used to run home after school to catch it. I remember seeing Bob Seger and the Last Herd on that show and Seger with his wool coat.
