My exploration of contemporary videos steeped in unabashed nostalgia continues this week with "A.M. Radio" from Everclear. This is, without a doubt, one of the scruffiest bands I've ever seen, but the the lead singer/songwriter Art Alexakis nails the whole 70s aesthetic. The lyrics are catchy, but the video itself is pop culture crack for a child of the 70s like me. I remember watching all those goofy Sid & Marty Kroft shows on Saturday mornings--Land of the Lost, H.R. Pufnstuf with Witchiepoo, Sigmund and the Sea Monsters... Wow. It's a wonder they didn't include the classic Bigfoot & Wildboy in that mix. But even though I was very young, I clearly remember watching Hawaii Five-O with my parents in the evenings, and I guess it's a testament to my age that I also remember watching the original Sonny & Cher Show and The Dean Martin Show (and later, his Celebrity Roasts) back then as well. So, yeah. This song and video works for me.
