U68? U-BET!

I remember watching "Nocturnal Transmissions" from U68 back around 1982, when MTV wasn't on the Manhattan cable system yet. It was grainy and on a black & white set in my bedroom, but it opened up a whole new, yet very transitory, world of TV music.

When I finally got the chance to see MTV, I actually preferred the low-rent flavor of U68.

Thanks to my friend Scully, here's a collection of station IDs by mostly famous personalities for U68.....

Was that a very young Gary Dell'abate there in that clip about 41 seconds in?

U68 was the bomb. Remember when they had Uncle Floyd & Oogie co-anchor the news
