E.T. Parts 2 and 3

Just finished digitizing episodes 2 and 3 of the short lived stand-alone "The E.T. Food Palace" series Tape and Record Show Enterprises made in 1983, based on the skit from the "James Stricklin Happy Hour", which it itself was based on a SCTV skit "The 3-D House of Beef".

These episodes were recorded before I had an audio mixer, so were kind of "crude" editing wise to say the least. Plain "stereo" was the best I could do back then. James appeared as himself, Frank Nelson, and Raymond J. Johnson Jr. I was myself and Bruno. Jerry Sanders was himself and "Gonzo Nesbitt". Jerry also did the "Beaver Cry", from earlier "Happy Hour" shows, after being slapped.

Episode three had a bit of a "milestone" in Tape and Record Show editing history. Even without a mixer, we managed to get James and the person he was impersonating, Raymond J. Johnson, singing a duet of Kenny Loggin's "I'm Alright" together. The way we managed that was recording one version first, then playing it back, while having mics held up to the speakers, and James singing along in the opposite microphone next to the speaker and recording it. Primitive, yet effective.
