Throwback Thursday *Lala’s Vintage Finds* – GRAFFITI ROCK 1984 feat. RUN DMC, KOOL MOE DEE & SPECIAL K

There is only ONE pilot episode of Graffiti Rock which screened on June 29, 1984 on WPIX channel 11 in NYC. It was the hip-hop version of Soul Train and intended to be an on-going series. The episode is hosted by Michael Holman and features the legendary RUN DMC, The New York City Breakers (Beat Street), Shannon (popular song, Let the Music Play), DJ Jimmie Jazz and Kool Moe Dee & Special K of the Treacherous Three. Unfortunately there was only one episode, but I’m positive this would have been the perfect outlet to expose the culture of hip-hop on mainstream TV.
