Rock doc 1: ✔

Part 1 of This Beat Goes On was as bang-up as expected. Speedy, concise exposition, though the typography recalled early K-Tel commercials, which could be intentional.

Nash the Slash, face completely bandaged, in round black shades, and wearing a white hat: David Wilcox had this fabulous Salvador Dalí moustache

And! (Hater alert!) Jee-ahn Go-meshi’s narration was just fine.

Can’t wait for the next three instalments. Kudos. And this doc airs the same week CTV Globe Media conceded it can’t sell ads on four of its music channels. Could music be a growth area for CBC Television?

    Unfortunately, the UK Nash the Slash fans won’t be able to see this in the UK :(
    It sounds like a good programme.

    All the best – and I hope you all enjoy the next three episodes.
