Did you know James Brown hosted his own television dance show in the mid-70s called Future Shock?

According to Dangerous Minds, the show was a semi-local Atlanta/semi-syndicated imitation of Soul Train with James Brown as host.

Future Shock was videotaped at WTCG TV studios in Atlanta before Ted Turner turned it into TBS. The episodes were thought to have been lost, but a few have resurfaced. God bless the internet.
