Creative Producer Frank Harlan's NORTHWEST ROCK Music Videos was a weekly TV series where Northwest Bands hosted music videos by Northwest Bands at popular Northwest locations.

NORTHWEST ROCK o
riginally aired on KTZZ TV Seattle, Washington1992-94. All 39 Episodes have been archived at MoPOP, Seattle's Museum of Popular Culture.

Many of the  NW Rock's Band Videos Can Be Seen Here


As a promo to get viewers in advertiser's stores, a Trading Card was created for each band or musician who hosted an episode that first year. Viewers could visit the stores to collect the entire series, which ended up being 18 different cards. While digging through the No-Budget Productions archive (aka All of Those Boxes Over There) We discovered that there were about 400 complete sets just waiting to be hyped and sold to collectors of the era.
