This almost 2 hour special episode of Night Flight “Hot Rocks #1” originally aired on June 21, 1983 (for some interesting reason the slate for this episode reads “July 15th” of the same year….). Where else on television could you find 1950s cult video segments like ‘Space Cadet’ followed by a pure Lynchian unknown filmmakers showcase into Kaiju Midnight Movie trailers? Blue Oyster Cult interviews back to back with Depeche Mode videos or Black Sabbath’s iconic Beat Club performance following The Belle Stars? Where on television could you be challenged, excited and inspired all at once? Night Flight of course!
This DVD includes a vintage episode of 50s SciFi TV episode of “Space Cadet” Starring actor Frankie Thomas aka Tom Corbett. This episode is followed by a grouping college experimental films that presently are extremely rare.

Joni Mitchell Tour Dates,
Exclusive interview with Doc Pomus: Using the stage name “Doc Pomus”, teenager Felder began performing as a blues singer. His stage name was not inspired by anyone in particular; he just thought it sounded better for a blues singer than the name Jerry Felder. Pomus stated that more often than not, he was the only Caucasian in the clubs, but that as a Jew and a polio victim, he felt a special “underdog” kinship with African Americans, while in turn the audiences both respected his courage and were impressed with his talent. Gigging at various clubs in and around New York City, Pomus often performed with the likes of Milt Jackson, Mickey Baker and King Curtis. Pomus recorded approximately 40 sides as a singer in the ’40s and ’50s for record companies such as Chess, Apollo, Gotham and others.
