TV-a-Go-Go: Rock on TV f.has been added to your Cart. And now, Austen has penned the definitive tome on all things Rock TV. His prose crackles like a man in awe of his subject, and rightfully so; lucid and engaging, TV-A-Go-Go not only has everything and then some inside, but includes-rather than a mere detailing of who-was-on-what-all manner of interesting, cogent theses on culture woven into the text.

In the essays contained herein I will offer opinionated histories of under-documented aspects of rock on TV (cartoon rock bands, black-audience music programming, punk on television). For the overdocumented subjects (the Monkees, Dick Clark, 1956 Elvis Presley on TV), I will try to examine why the artifice of rock ‘n’ roll on TV feels so good to me. When I watch rock music on TV I want to be profoundly entertained.

According to author Jake Austen, televised rock music is in some ways an impossible combination. and one that he absolutely adores. His delightful book, TV a-Go-Go explores the myriad manifestations of this partnership. Austen, who produces his own children's television dance show called Chic-a-Go-Go, has a feel for what worked and what didn't and his intelligent opines are a delight to read.
I just finished reading TV A-Go-Go and don't recall any "claims of being the definitive book on its subject," as Mr. Rector claims. No one writer could cover everything and nobody would want to read a book that di. Apparently Mr. Rector wanted an encyclopedia of rock on TV, rather than a series of entertaining essays with thought-provoking theses. I'm sorry he didn't get what he wanted, but this was a very worthwhile read
