Shindig! was created and produced by Jack Good who had previously produced rock ‘n’ roll TV shows in his native Britain. There, he perfected his style of fast-paced rock music programing. In 1962, Good produced a pilot for American TV. The pilot, titled “Young America Swings the World,” eventually became the blueprint for Shindig! Most of the top American and British rock/pop acts of the mid-1960s appeared on Shindig!. The British performers often appeared in segments taped in the UK Shindig! was different from previous US rock ‘n’ roll programs. It featured non-stop music that, in most cases, was only interrupted by the commercial breaks. Shindig! started a trend in television which could probably best be described as “rock ‘n’ roll…with go-go dancers.”
