It's 1978, and a band you've been following for years is going to do a video concert on TV. How do you make a recording from the 20 inch Sears Silvertone TV? Get out one of the cheap microphones the kids have been using to record audio letters, park it in front of the TV speaker and keep everyone away/silent as one-time-on-TV-only Creedence Clearwater Revival plays "Fortunate Son"? Take apart the TV and plug alligator clips to the TV speaker leads? J C Penney had an elegant solution via it's MCS line of audio/video components, where all you needed was an ordinary patch cord to record off TV. What's that you say? "Record the show on the brand new Panasonic VCR?" By cracky, that's a splendid idea! Breaking News! The "Moan Family" puppets are BACK!
