TCM Never Shows Older "B" Musicals

Why doesn't TCM show the ton of older "B" musicals that were put out during the late 30's and early 40's. I remember seeing these wonderful movies when I was growing up in the middle 50's on tv. There were fun to watch, had loads of nice songs and just enjoyable. They are probably just sitting in some movie vault just doing nothing.

I agree. I love the "B" movies. They were the staple of my sickly childhood. Back in the days of "antenna tv", our local Pittsburgh stations would show these old "B" flicks after "The Tonight Show" with Steve Allen, then Jack Paar. I sat propped up in bed with the vaporizer running with the odor of Vicks Salve permeating my room. This is how I came to know and love old movies.

Yes it is a shame that TCM doesn't purchase/rent the movie packages that were shown on tv in the 50's. I remember coming home from school and watching "Footlight Theater" that was shown locally in Baltimore. Great "B" musicals, dramas, and westerns. Where are these movies. I bet they are just sitting in some film vault doing nothing. I love TCM but feel they should only stick to the movies up to 1960. I gave up on AMC when they went to commercials and started cutting their movies.
