The raw stems are here archive.org/details/raw-captur if you want to take your own crack at editing the episode.

If you watch my first attempt, let me know what you think! (And if you note any problems, please pass along a timestamp if you can.)

Alright, show's over. That was delightful. I'm glad I got to experience it, and I'm glad I got to do it through a really nice pair of headphones at a volume I could control.

Now we're watching a clip from, or possibly the entire film of, Space is the Place.

They are not coming back.

Valid. Marshall seemed to be pretty close to the end of his capabilities for the night.

.9GB left to upload, 10% battery life remaining. Let's see what happens.

Either way, I'm going to bed when whichever one finishes.

The band has gone walkabout again. I dunno if they'll come back this time.

The opening tracking shot of the episode proper (not the shitty fake teaser at the very beginning) is pretty impressive, and not the kind of thing you would have seen on television very often in 1952. (otoh, since this sequence was shot outside, it's almost certainly FILM, which means that this copy of this sequence is a telecine of a kinescope of a telecine!)

The raw stems are still uploading, but here's the edited and encoded version of my first Space Patrol episode capture of the year.

I hope someone out there is bootlegging this, because it's excellent and I'll probably want to hear it again.

If not, though, it's be a great experience.

Real live music never sounds this clean.

I wanna know who this guitarist is. Dude is fuckin' bringing the house down.

I want one of these weird little electronic dooddads Marshall is playing.

It's apparently an "EVI" an Electronic Valve Instrument, which is like an EWI, but with fingering more like a trumpet.

I imagine it's difficult to make it sound a quarter as neat as they do here, but I want one to screw around with.

Also, I imagine these trumpet mutes are some kind of fancy trumpet mutes and not the ends of plungers, but they totally look like they're using rubber plungers as trumpet mutes.
