The Front Lines on "Coming On!"
In 1983, with Ed as the drummer, The Front Lines appeared on a Disney show called "Coming On!"
With several other NU-related acts, the band performed in the Norris Center at Northwestern University.
We performed "Hide Your Heart Away," I think.
Phil thinks it was "Mr. Rock." I remember we were told not to play "Suicide" for obvious reasons.
We never saw the show or found access to a recording of it. NU Public Relations did send us some still pictures from it.
Here's a description from a grainy YouTube video of the general opening:
"Coming On! was the Collage [sic] Musical and Comedy Television Series on The Disney Channel.
Jimmy Aleck was the host for The Disney Channel series showcasing performances by college students across the country."
