Electronic parts scene from Spaced (1977)

Most of this show sucks rocks, but as much as it pains me to keep it around, I do so because all my favorite people are on it. It was a student project that originally ran 48 minutes.

The tape is damaged and becomes unintelligible at a climactic moment. The individual source tracks no longer exist, nor does the written script, so the full show can never be restored even if it were worthwhile to do so.

This particular scene remains special because of the story behind it. Mark Alley and I went into a dingy electronics store in Sacramento and rummaged through a bunch of bins of used radio parts. We had no idea what we were looking at, but wrote down the names of the items. Afterward, I worked them all into a scene that Mark, Chuck Barry, and I read.
