Friday Feature: TV's "Fridays" Gave Early Exposure In The 80's To Musicians That Became Superstars

Jul 21, 2020

It was the early 1980's when a live, late night comedy series aired nationally on ABC called Fridays.  For a time, Fridays was so hot,  it beat Saturday Night Live in the ratings.  Cast member from the series, Maryedith Burrell was our guest during the July 17, 2020 interview that focused on the program's list of musical guests. Some of these artists were known and some of them were just hitting their groove before going on to become superstars. Hear stories about Tom Petty, The Pretenders, and an American debut for The Clash.
