The Generation Gap (circa 1972)

Knoxville's answer to the Partridge Family (they even played their own instruments!), The Generation Gap played locally, made records, and performed on local television throughout the 1970s. This vintage television clip is from the Ladies Day Show, with Margie Ison. The very fact that this clip survives is a miracle as most television programming from the era no longer exists.
