3 Country was a short lived program that aired on WSTM, Channel 3 in Syracuse, NY, in 1980 and 1981. Ironically enough, only 3 episodes ever aired of 3 Country. The host, Vic Wright, would travel to some of the more "country" sections of Upstate New York to film some interesting, and sometimes a little bizarre, segments. I've included some of the more entertaining clips on this page.
