FTV: Pop Music Sketch Comedy Show from 1985 [VHSRip]

I found two episodes of FTV on an old VHS tape.

FTV is a pop music oriented sketch comedy show parodying music videos. Basically a parody of MTV. Cast includes John Paragon (Pee-wee’s Playhouse, UHF) and Khandi Alexander (NewsRadio, Treme).

Creator: Chris Bearde

Cast:
Bill Bentley
Freddie Jackson
Stephanie Mills
Wayne ‘Crescendo’ Ward
Khandi Alexander
Vic Dunlop
Don Felder
Pam Matteson
Bridget Michele
John Paragon

Episode A
Special Guests: John Parr, The Bangles

Featured Songs:
Depeche Mode – People Are People
Dolly Parton – 9 to 5
ZZ Top – Legs
Sister Sledge – We Are Family

I had to edit the music all to hell to get around the copyright bot. The Dolly Parton song ended up particularly nightmarish hahaha. I had to completely cut out The Bangles – Going Down to Liverpool music video too.

Episode B
Special Guests: Dokken

Partial rip. Cuts off during Dokken interview.

Featured Songs:
Michael Sembello – Maniac
Ronald Reagan Rap

Note: I edited the audio during the Maniac segment to bypass the copyright bot.
