Vaginal Davis presents Rising Stars, Falling Stars – Sweet 16 mm, Never Been Kissed

It's that time again! On June 11, archive expert Vaginal Davis is presenting her latest analogue finds at silent green alongside Daniel Hendrickson: Two episodes of Beat-Club, the first German TV show to present English-speaking artists. The show was broadcast by Radio Bremen from 1965 to 1972. It was presented by Uschi Nerke and various other co-hosts. In the first episode, the TV presenter apologized to viewers who did not like beat music, but the show had soon acquired cult status. Performances by Cat Stevens, the Bee Gees, Jimi Hendrix and The Who will be complemented by some surprise clips from Vaginal Davis' own collection.
