Jeunesse Oblige (loosely translated: Youth Must Be Served) was a French-Canadian teenage music TV show from Montreal, Canada during the years 1963 to 1968. The show was broadcast by Radio-Canada six days a week and was a mix of American Bandstand, Hollywood A-Go-Go and Shindig! During its heyday it featured an exciting array of French language rock and roll and garage punk groups and a wildly dressed and gyrating teenage audience.

Plus this bonus selection...

FRANCE GALL TV SPECIAL
FR. TV special. French YeYe mod girl, France Gall stars in a French TV special singing outdoors in what looks a toxic chemical processing plant. I don't know the songs but some are very "60s cool" in that groovy mod, secret agent, Burt Bacharach kind of way. One song mentions LSD. Some really cool and mod imagery.
