Final Episode of Shindig!
50 years ago today...
The final episode of ABC's music variety show "Shindig!" airs, before it is replaced on the schedule by "Batman." During it's run the show featured acts like The Beatles, The Kinks, The Rolling Stones, and The Who.
Dick and DeeDee - Lightning Strikes (A Tribute to Batman)
The final episode of Shindig! was used to promote upcoming shows on ABC, including this odd tribute to Batman.
The Knickerbockers - Lies
The Knickerbockers performed their Beatlesesque garage rock classic "Lies" on the final episode of Shindig! This clip is not from Shindig!, but I'm including it anyway because I LOVE this song.
