If you know anything about Craig O'Neill, he likes to tell stories and to reminisce. He always wants to find a way to go back in time every now and then and take a look around. He likes to look at the good ole days, you know, that brought us to where we are now. A time that shaped the way that we are today like 1957.
Sixty years ago, where were you? Okay, some of us weren't born, yet. But Craig was 7-years-old, and learning how to dance. And like many other Arkansas kids, he was learning his moves by watching one very special program that aired right here on THV11.
Thanks to the magic of television we can take you back in time, in a way, and take a look back at one of Little Rock's biggest years with Steve's Show! Because it was a live program, there are no full recorded episodes available. But keep reading as we walk down memory lane with many of the key players from Steve's Show!
Dr. John Kirk, a professor at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock said, “Historians have more recently addressed those sort of undertones and undercurrents of disillusionment in American society in 1957. You know it's the birth of the teenager, it's the idea of the wild one, the kind of rockers, the kind of disaffected youth."
