The next month after Are-Oh-Vee ended there was a replacement show. Called Warped TV.


They played videos by; The Donnas, Depeche Mode, Bjork, the Living End, The Offspring, Big Dumb Face, Everclear, Dwarves, Foo Fighters, Atom and his Package, Gorillaz, Papa Roach, Creeper Lagoon, New Found Glory, Weezer, Deftones, Sick of it all, Unwritten Law, AFI, Jurassic 5, Ours, and others. The address was to write to a place in Santa Monica. I think it was to the Launch offices. Sadly I do not have a screen cap of this.


The show was gone by June 2nd and got replaced by a chopper infomercial. They showed the same episode for a month. These were the 2 locations it was at in the area in 2001; Irvine, CA June 28 and Los Angeles, CA June 29.


I did notice that episode 498 of Are-Oh-Vee seems to have the Warped Tour banding and not the Launch one.


I contacted G. Scott Barrett through twitter after I posted my first Are-Oh-Vee blog. I asked him what Warped TV was. This was his reply; “For one year we owned the warped tour so we were going to hit the road and broadcast live performances from the tour.  Things got a bit complicated with the title sponsor and we had the scrap the plans.”
