So I saw this on SABC in the early 80's and immediately grabbed the nearest vhs tape and recorded the rest of the program. To this day I still love this show. It gave me hope for REAL musiuc on REAL instruments in the 80s when everything was synthesizers and drum boxes. Thankyou so much Herkenes, I have missed this massive like, and now – the whole show!
