Coming soon…An interview with HOST of Noise Network/ Noise Bazaar…

Thirty years ago this fall, I started high school. Around midnight on a Saturday night, my sister and I cycled through the 6 television stations received at our parents’ house. We landed on channel 40. “Hey! This is not Pat Robertson! This is not the 700 Club! What in the world is channel 40 playing right now?” And then Nick Cave came on the screen. “Quick! Grab a VHS tape! WHAT IS GOING ON?!”

Thus started the best high school education for which I could have hoped, every Saturday night at midnight.

Below is a clip from the VHS tape that we used to tape our first night of Noise Network. The show included mind-blowers like The Residents, PiL, Siglo XX, and Trotsky Icepick!

And coming soon, my interview with Jeff Moody, host of Noise, who tells me the story of this long lost jewel of a music video show made with passion in Kenosha, WI in the 1990s.

    This was the best thing that ever happened to me. My brother and I had just about the same experience. But it was midnight……in Bermuda! Being a couple expat teenagers, we had no access to anything like this. What were the odds of getting some Midwest late night public access video show in Bermuda. I found lollapalooza, Jesus lizard, nirvana….and so many more bands.
    We’ve been searching for decades for anything related to noise network. This is the 1st day I’ve seen anything . Thanks so much. I’ll be looking for the mentioned interview. They have no idea how much they changed the lives of a dozen lost kids on a remote island…..
