It was an old TV show from the 70's and early 80's, called SCTV. I have a season on DVD and recorded it off the tv screen. smile I thought everyone would get a kick out of it. Especially those who lived during the home organ heyday.

We once had a local dealer known as National Music and owned by a fellow by the name of Sam Polit. He used to make tv commercials dressed up in long underwear as "Super Sam." A long time ago!!

I was recently brought a part of a pianodisc player off his piano to fix. When it was done, I called him to tell him it was done. When he answered the phone I asked if this was Super Sam. He got a kick out of that.

Used to love that show. It's where John Candy got his start.
