‘The Who’ Makes U.S. TV Debut In 1965 [VIDEO]
One of the longest lasting "British Invasion" groups, "The Who" made its debut on American television on this day in 1965. They appeared on the ABC-TV show, "Shindig", a teen music program of the time. I enjoy playing "The Who" on 96.1 WODZ, as their music is so diverse.
Here's more about the program, "Shindig", according to tv.com:
"Shindig! was a rock 'n' roll series that ran from September 16, 1964 through January 8, 1966 on the ABC TV network. During its first season, Shindig was broadcast Wednesdays at 8:30pm Eastern. Premiering as a half-hour series, it expanded to an hour in January 1965."
Take a look at this video of "The Who" on Shindig, with a very young looking Roger Daltrey at the mic:
