Description by OLDIES.com:
In this documentary, Mr. Lobo (Cinema Insomnia) is your guide back to the days when local television was king and into the future with the new breed of "Virginia Creepers." You'll hear audio going back to 1958, see photos unseen for five decades and watch video clips thought beyond recovery. You'll get a detailed tour through the Golden Age of TV horror hosting during the 1970s and 80s, as well as a look into the birth of internet hosting and see where the craft is headed.
But more than that, this film takes you through the transformation of television and entertainment in America and explores why this format was so popular, why it matters, and why it survives.
