VH1 Classic: My Favorite Ghost Ship

An old friend of mine just lost his job at VH1 Classic. And now there's a nice memo going around VH1 about how they fired everyone at VH1 Classic in order to help it grow. OK that makes a ton of sense. Without so much as a production assistant this channel is supposed to keep delivering the strong content I've grown to love in the last year? Riiight.
