Deadspin just pointed out that in 1989, Michael Jordan had his own TV show — presumably for a Chicago audience. The program, called Michael Jordan's Airwaves, isn't exactly Space Jam, but you'll get to see plenty of MJ taking questions from both the audience and interviewer Jim Rose. 

And there's a couple of highlights: a little under three minutes in, you'll find a mustache'd pre-Lakers Phil Jackson. And towards the end, Michael himself goes bowling and does a lot better than you'd expect. A rare Internet treat!
