What Do You Think? Let Us Know.

  1. Hi Richard – Do you think any of those tapes survived? In May 1967, my all-girl rock & roll band called, The Pretty Kittens, traveled through Vietnam entertaining the troops. We were interviewed by John Steinbeck IV and were filmed performing our rock show at The American Forces Vietnam Network in Saigon.

    1. Hi, Dianne! Thanks for writing about “Television for the Troops.” I was at AFVN in 1970. If you have any pictures of your AFVN visit that you would like to share, please send it in response to the comment section.

      As far as the tape is concerned, most of the video tapes were recycled so the tape could be reused. While I was working on the article, I tried to find any existing recordings that may have been saved but the trail when cold when I was informed any AFVN material had been handed off to the National Archives.

      However, most of those shows were transferred to 16mm film (kinescoped) prior to shipment to the other other stations in the network. Once on 16mm, it is possible some may have survived.

      Doing a check on the National Archives, I see they have updated some of their search engines and I’ll make another stab at it.

      If I get any response, I will let you know!

  2. Forgot to say we were from Southern California. We also entertained at the Thai Air Force Bases in Thailand for 2 weeks. Hope to hear from you. I am writing a memoir about those 3 1/2 months. and have pictures, etc. to prove everything. Dianne
