Geeks and Beats podcast, episode 285: Before there was MTV with Tarzan Dan

MTV is pushing 40? Yep. Next August is the big anniversary. Tarzan Dan from YTV’s Hit List drops by Studio 3B to talk about those in music television who came before him, he and Alan swap tops on how to interview a rock star, and we find out how he reacted to landing in the pages of Canadian music history.

There’s also Amber’s great article on the history of music television. And the audio of the podcast…

…and video of the whole thing!
