must be the US mix with the sitar very low
  12:12am BH:

is this like how some radio stations played the version of "Groove is in the Heart" without the Q-Tip verse? (or "Waterfalls" without Left Eye's part)

it's the woodstock remix

  Swag For Life Member 1:23am Ira:

SCTV was on NBC in New York. I was working at Maxwell's at a certain point in its run, before we had a VCR. Georgia used to record the show on an audio casette for me. That's how I experienced the William B. Show for the first time.

  Swag For Life Member 1:32am Ira:

90 minutes of SCTV, yes. Not sure it was the 90s, though.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35am Chop Scott:

Growing up outside of Chicago in the late '70s SCTV aired following SNL. That was my Saturday night, before having a driver's license. Brilliant show! -The Plasmatics on Fishin' Musician. Guy Caballero, Brini Sclaroso!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

i was junior high school age when I saw Python"s Mollusk sketch on PBS. For me that's 1977 maybe - not so long after they were actually on. I mean I remember which sketch - & my sense of humor has never been the same. Beatles of Comedy.
Avatar 1:37am northguineahills:

I was once returning from my office job, and had just gone through a break-up, and I bumped into Daniel in the Union Sq station, and w/o a word, he gave me a big hug....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:45am coelacanth∅:

that's Johnny Cash.
he also gives the tree-cutting machine shit for not answering him upon his greeting, in the song about john henry

Wait, there's a longtime Accu member who's related to Jorma Kaukonen by marriage, and of course I can't remember who it is. Maybe coela?

okay -i am *indirectly* related to Jorma.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08am mariano:

That's cool, Ira. If I've ever completely missed some mega star on the street, I don't wanna know about it. I'm in my own world when I'm walking, and I'm not that good at facial recognition anyway.

Hah! I knew it, coela! Wait, I don't know what to believe anymore.

SCTV network 90 ended in 1983, then they had one season on Cinemax
  Swag For Life Member 2:12am Ira:

Thanks, Joe. I don't think my career behind the soundboard at Maxwell's made it into the 90s either.
Avatar 2:12am northguineahills:

I'm the same, mariano. I once was returning from a sound gallery on 7th Ave, and my youth minister from FL kept shouting my name before I looked up. (I grew up in a fundie household, at least that guy was cool)

Avatar 2:16am Joe B:

@Chop Scott - yeah the early SCTV seasons ran in 30 minute form sometimes after SNL, or on CH 9 in NY pre-NBC. It was kinda like the Capitol Records Beatles albums, but still a cool intro!
