Murdoch On Mic

Mad Man Murdoch at the Mic, Rick James on guitar!

One of my favorite episodes of the original "A-Team" aired last night on Channel 10.3 RTV in the Capital Region.

In "The Heart of Rock N' Roll," Singer Rick James asks the A-Team to help old rock-and-roll legend C.J. Mack (played by Isaac Hayes aka "chef" on South Park), whose life in prison has suddenly become very dangerous.

There's a wealth of music in this episode, including 'The Heart of Rockn' Roll' by Huey Lewis and the News; 'Super Freak' and 'Glow' by Rick James. Isaac Hayes performs 'Don't Let Go' and 'Steamroller Blues' and we even hear 'Jailhouse Rock' by Elvis Presley as the team enter the prison grounds!

"A-Team" was one of the few TV shows of its day to use contemporary hit music in individual episodes. There's another ep,"Incident at Crystal Lake," which features Blondie's "One Way or Another."

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
