Dear 100 Hour Board,

I like light shows. I like rock and roll. I like light shows with rock and roll. When were the two first incorporated together? Who first incorporated the two together?

- Spam

A: Dear Spam,

Light shows are credited to The Grateful Dead (when they were known as The Merry Pranksters)in the early 1960s at the beginning of the "acid rock" movement.

A: Dear Spam (don't you dare call yourself real meat),

I think light shows are kind of like the potato ricer, shag carpet, and Michael Jackson--all bizarre by-products of the 70s.
