50 Years Ago Today- The Midnight Special Debuts On NBC (Watch “Hold Your Head Up” By Argent)

50 years ago today (8/19/72), the live music show The Midnight Special debuted on NBC. At first, it was just a one-off special presentation, soon to be followed by a regular show, with Wolfman Jack serving as announcer. Check out Argent (featuring Rod Argent of the Zombies) performing their most well-known hit “Hold Your Head Up” live on 8/19/72 – a song Phish has performed tongue in cheek instrumentally on and off for decades as their intro and outro to a comically fueled Jon Fishman vocal performance.
