Rock and Roll Hall of Fame gets treasure trove from 'Austin City Limits'
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced on Thursday that 37 years of the Austin City Limits music show will be digitized in collaboration with KLRU-TV and more than 800 performances will be made available for the public to view for the first time at the Rock Hall’s Library and Archives in Cleveland.
This 1982 episode featuring Roy Orbison has long been one of the most popular in the show's history. Executive producer Terry Lickona remembers it as "one of the few times I can honestly say I had chills running up and down my spine from watching a performer on our own stage." During the taping, Orbison received more standing ovations than any other ACL performer up to that point.
