Storyline

"Night Tracks" was TBS SuperStation's answer to MTV and the music-video craze of the mid-1980's. Airing on Friday & Saturday nights, it featured back-to-back videos played in marathon stretches that extended well into Sunday morning. Night Tracks differed from MTV with a more genre-diverse playlist, with an emphasis in r&b, dance-music and less-mainstream fare. A highlight of the show was that off-air vee-jay's kept chatter to a minimum. Other versions of the show included "Chart-Busters" (with a count-down format) and "Power Play", which featured the most popular chart-toppers. Written by Anonymous

Please, TBS, bring back Night Tracks!
13 February 2004 | by Stapa-BomarSee all my reviews

Night Tracks was such a tradition at my & my friends' house on the weekends. It was a wonderful part of my childhood. The great thing about Night Tracks was that it was a great thing a kid could do in the safety of one's home on Friday & Saturday night. My friends & I would be anticipating each week's show, wondering if we would catch "Little Red Corvette" or "1999" by Prince. Back in those days nobody had VCR's, so we had to watch every move with full concentration to mimic the hot dance moves. Night Tracks videos were far superior to MTV due to the variety. It seemed that MTV had just changed to the AC/DC type videos & those were not very fun. Videos from that era were so original & creative. I used to audio tape Night Tracks by laying my recorder by the television! How primitive is that by today's standards? My cousin, who was in college, used to try to end his Friday Night dates by about 11 pm & he would drive over & watch the videos with my brother & I. It was a very happy era of my life, I guess that's why I enjoy videos from that era so much. There were many videos by bands such as the Time, Gap Band, & others that never saw the light of day on MTV back then. It was like seeing a whole other world. I wish WTBS would bring it back!
