Remember the Monty Python episode with the abortive interview of Raymond Luxury-Yacht?
I was listening to Gerry Mulligan’s Jeru the other day and I practically fell off my chair when the track “Blue Boy” came up. It’s the intro music for the interview program.
Had I known back in the 70s who the artist was I would have skirkled to the nearest record store (such things still existed in those distant days) and laid hands on the LP with reverent violence and listened to this tremendously cool album at intervals ever since. But I didn’t because I didn’t know.
So I think that TV programs need footnotes. Not all programs; just the ones I happen to watch. I will begin my campaign to bring about this sorely needed social revolution after lunch. If I remember.
