Thought Bubble – Joe Dea’s YouTube Channel

Joe Dea was a music video director back before that was actually a job description. I don’t think I ever met him but I knew him tangentially through my VERY brief volunteer work at the late 70s/early 80s groundbreaking television newsmagazine/video production company VideoWest. Founded by Fabrice Florin (whom dad knew somehow) and staffed by a bunch of people who went on to work for MTV. Joe Dea made some of the best comedy sketches and also some of the best music videos. Joe Dea has a YouTube channel, now, and a lot of the old VideoWest segments are posted there. (I don’t know why this show is not better documented, overall.) What I do recall about the show is that each week had a theme like “sex” or “death” or “politics“. The show was also very aware of the video art scene. I think they would broadcast documentation from the then-still-active Ant Farm, for example.

And, Joe, if you read this, I would love to see “Beach Blanket Armageddon” again, if it still exists.
