Retro Friday: "Teen Talk," Circa Early 1980s, Tackles Punk Rock
An episode of early 1980s L.A. kid-centric talk show "Teen Talk." Watch as a bunch of kids explain punk rock to the older host, who asks about The Cramps ("what's that?") X and John Doe. It's cheesy, and yet doesn't sensationalize punk.
From the YouTube post: "Not an SCTV skit, Joe Feinstein was a well liked teacher at Grant High School in the San Fernando Valley. Teen Talk was an early morning show that attempted to cover issues that concerned teens. Unintentionally amusing, this show is on Punk and any other new music at the time."
