michaelsweet.jpgA moment of sincerity: VH1 Classic is showing AFTERMATH: The Station Fire Five Years Later this Sunday night. The show combines documentary footage about the fire and its victims with footage from the Phoenix Rising benefit concert featuring Gretchen Wilson, Winger, Tesla, Twisted Sister, and my personal favorite: Stryper’s Michael Sweet performing with Boston. It’s worth checking out, and donating to the survivors’ fund. One request to VH1, though: Next time you’re doing this sort of thing, could you not dump this sort of programming on your digital cable outlet while you’re airing a Flavor of Love marathon on the main channel? Update: the show has been added to VH1, between episodes of Rock of Love. [VH1 Classic]

    holy christ. did we really need that screenshot? i’ve gone to great lengths to avoid seeing video and pics of the fire.

    @GhostOfDuane: a good point. i’ve removed the pic.

    I thought you were joking until I looked at the VH1 schedule. It really is sandwiched between episodes of “Rock of Love.”

    @Maura Johnston: thanks. i would say you should replace it with the “horribly tragic item in need of a strong accompanying visual” ticket, but that would just be asking too much.

    They should play Elvis’ great single “Burning Love,” don’t you think?
