The Scene was Detroit's answer to Soul Train , a now-legendary local TV dance show which aired from 1975-1987 , and became known for breaking early techno records alongside the usual disco and funk. The Detroit News reports that host and executive producer Nat Morris is staging a reunion of the program's local regulars this coming weekend in the Motor City (read the full article here ). Seems like a good enough excuse to run some vintage Scene clips. The above from 1978 features the show's Triple Spotlight segment - a crew of couples puttin' in work to Bohannon's classic "Let's Start the Dance" (starts getting real serious about :40 in).
BONUS... WATCH the show's most famous clip - a stoopid fresh 1982 dance line to seminal Detroit techno record, A Number of Names' "Sharevari." (The dude with the guitar is THE MAN.) The Scene , SEEN!
