Generic Can Be A Problem.
I've been on a bit of an '80s and early '90s nostalgia kick of late, having spent a lot of time looking at old TV commercials on YouTube. And this morning I was thinking of the days when music videos were the hot thing, and there were who knows how many video shows on both network and local TV. But one I remember is kind of hard to look up. To the best of my knowledge the title, or partial title, was Rock and Roll Video. As you can imagine it's pretty hard to find something like that when it's such a generic phrase. Of course CBC's long running daytime video show was Video Hits, another generic title, but it's much easier to find when you know the broadcaster.
