Recorded and mixed on a 2 Track machine and originally broadcast in October of 1979 and spliced together by hand--"from the bodies I took from graveyards..."I created it!" A "Mini-Cab Driver" sketch by Peter Cook & Dudley Moore was added to the original 45 minute production somewhere in the eighties, along with a transfer of John Zacherley's classic "Dinner with Drac" from the original 45 rpm single--scratches intact. Zacherley also lends his announcing talents to the production credit tag.
