So much of TV entertainment footage in the past has been wiped out, including ABC-TV’s Countdown and GTK. However the National Film & Sound Archive has started to put online footage from the daytime The Mike Walsh Show which ran in the 1970s and 1980s to a weekly audience of 5 million. Footage included Johnny Cash, Bette Midler, Village People and Queensland singing nun Sister Stansilaus Zgrajewski, whose debut appearance caused such a storm (a good one) that she was invited back the next day.

I havenâ€™t seen that many of your films, so I rented The Rose (1979) last weekend as well. I was really surprised. I mean, when rock fans talk about the great rock â€˜n roll movies, no one ever mentions it. But they should. What was it that attracted you to that story?
This woman turning herself inside out. The rise of an extraordinary talentâ€”it was based on Janis Joplin.

Today in Music History
A look at events from past Oct. 30ths
In 1908, Patsy Montana, the first woman in country music to have a million-selling record, was born in Hot Springs, Ark. She accomplished the feat with her 1935 recording of “I Want to Be a Cowboy’s Sweetheart.” She died in Nashville on May 3, 1996.
In 1939, Eddie Holland, one-third of Motown’s famous songwriting team of Holland, Dozier and Holland, was born in Detroit. Eddie, along with his brother, Brian, and Lamont Dozier, wrote more than 25 top-10 hits for Motown between 1963 and 1966. Among their successes were “Reach Out, I’ll Be There” for “The Four Tops,” “You Keep Me Hangin’ On” and “Baby Love” for “The Supremes” and “Heat Wave” for “Martha and the Vandellas.” Holland, Dozier and Holland departed Motown in 1968 in a dispute over royalties. They set up their own label, Invictus-Hot Wax, but business was curtailed somewhat until a lawsuit alleging breach of contract was settled out of court. Invictus-Hot Wax brought stardom to such performers as Freda Payne, “Chairmen of the Board” and “Honey Cone,” whose “Want Ads” was the company’s first No. 1 record in 1971. Eddie Holland also had some success as a performer, reaching No. 30 on the Billboard chart in 1962 with “Jamie.”

By Christy Lemire (CP) â€“ 43 minutes ago
LOS ANGELES, Calif. â€” Long before Russell Brand scores a single baggie of heroin or trashes a Las Vegas hotel suite as British singer Aldous Snow in “Get Him to the Greek,” there’s been a proud and loud tradition of movies about rock-star wretched excess. After a while they almost become parodies of themselves. But some of them know just the right way to turn it up to 11:
