The 'Tucson Weekly' YouTube Dance Party?

Posted By on Fri, Jan 14, 2011 at 12:30 PM

Tucson has had a number of wacky local television shows in its history, but as far as I know, this city has never had its own Soul Train knockoff, like Detroit's The Scene, which ran from 1975 to 1987.

As shocking as this statement sounds, The Scene might have even been a little bit cooler than Don Cornelius' famous show since Detroit's version included the techno music that was emerging from the city at the time. Also, any opportunity to hear Kano's "I'm Ready" is a good one.

Note to local television channels: I think Tucson is dying for a soul and techno dance party program. Make it happen.
