-1993: KINGSTON, ONTARIO CANADA TV: “Bright Lights Big City”; “Can’t Be Satisfied” plus interview.
-1994: USA NETWORK-'Up All Night With Gilbert Gottfried'. The band acted parts out with Gottfried. Loosely scripted; the group basically ad-libbed their parts.

-2000: FEATURE FILM: ‘Where Is The Chesterfield King?’ Released by MDV Video in 2001. Written, scripted, produced and co-directed by Prevost who acted in the film as well with then members of the band. Literally a ‘no-budget’ film, in the vein of a ‘Hard Days Night’.

-2004: THE SOPRANOS: Season 5, Episode 5: ‘Irregular Around The Margins’. Band acted out the part of a band (themselves). Performed “I Don’t Understand” and “Mystery Trip” amidst drama between Tony (Soprano) and his daughter at the ‘Crazy Horse’.
-2005-’06- LITTLE STEVEN’S NEW YEARS EVE PARTY-ESPN 2005-2006. Cast included Little Steven (obviously), the Troggs (Reg Presley, RIP), New York Dolls, Chesterfield Kings and Charms amongst others. The band (C. Kings) performed “I Don’t Understand”. Prevost performed “Twist & Shout” along with various members of the cast. Prevost: “Little Steven re-invented and re-created the vibe that was present on such shows as ‘Shindig!’ and ‘Hullabaloo’. I was amazed at how he could make things happen exactly the way they should happen, and exactly how he wanted them to happen.”
-2007: CONAN O’BRIEN SHOW. Band performed “Up & Down”.
-2008: WXXI Public Television. Live concert. The show was issued on Little Steven’s Wicked Cool Records label as a double-set DVD/CD.Type your paragraph here.

*My early works from the 70’s including the DISTORTED LEVELS single were all produced by myself with John Fritsch.
*I produced all of THE CHESTERFIELD KINGS’ recordings with the exception of the ‘Stop!’ album, which was produced by Alex Janoulis (mastermind and member of LITTLE PHIL & THE NIGHTSHADOWS) and the ‘Berlin Wall Of Sound’ album, which was produced by Richie Scarlet. It should also be noted that Little Steven was involved with the production of ‘Mindbending Sounds’ (Song: "I Don't Understand"), ‘Psychedelic Sunrise’ and ‘Live Onstage … If You Want It”.
OTHER ARTISTS’ RECORDINGS PRODUCED BY PREVOST:
*I produced my solo single ‘Mr. Charlie’, and produced my first album ‘Mississippi Murderer’ and latest album 'Universal Vagrant' with Alex Patrick.
*THE FRANTIC FLATTOPS (Album: ‘Cheap Women, Cheap Booze, Cheaper Thrills’). I also wrote "Witchdoctor Curse" for the band-this song appears on the same LP.
*THE MOVIEES (single: “You Got What I Want”, Album: “Become One Of Them”).
*ST. PHILIPS ESCALATOR (Album: ‘Endless Trip’).
*NOTE: I was credited on a lot of the band’s albums as an ‘engineer’. I was NOT and we were NOT 'engineers'-we worked at the House of Guitars and sold equipment and had to know how to USE it which we did; but as far as actually KNOWING what we were doing and HOW to get the right tones, we were pretty clueless and it was hit & miss. I knew how to make stuff sound the way I wanted and how to get the vibe, but it was always an uphill battle and didn't always come out the way it was supposed to.
