Fire by Nite was a Christian variety show produced by Willie George Ministries and Church on the Move in Tulsa, Oklahoma. FBN was hosted by Blaine Bartel for most of its production and marketed primarily to Christian youth. Episodes typically centered on a relevant theme intermixed with comedic skits, interviews with popular Christian musicians, musical performances, and light evangelism.
In this edition, Blaine discusses the world of Satanism in part one of a two-part episode called “Satanism Unmasked” and welcomes popular Christian recording artist Carman to the program. His music videos “Witch’s Invitation” and “Satan, Bite The Dust” appear on the show. This episode aired on the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) in 1995.
Action Video Entertainment is hoping to have a revival of “Fire By Nite” in the near future with a similar format to the 1990 episodes and hopes to rebroadcast the classic episodes in the future.
I discovered this on YouTube and had to share it. It is a perfect example of the ridiculousness that was the Satanic Panic. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry as I watch this! From the cheesy opening music to the skits absolutely lacking in any semblance of humor, this thing is nothing but a blatant and bad attempt at brainwashing kids. I love how he comes out with a bucket of chicken for the token black guy, so racist!
