OMG! Monty Python in the KERA studios!…well, actually, in 1975.


A mere 24 hours after an unknown film with no distributor called Monty Python and the Holy Grail premiered in Los Angeles, four of the Monty Python troupe appeared at the KERA-TV studios in Dallas in 1975. The following video was discovered on a former KERA broadcast engineer’s “save” reel where it had gone unnoticed for a number of years. Unfortunately, the tape cuts out just as Terry Jones reveals the original title of the Flying Circus.  Thanks to Jesse Thorn, producer of The Sound of Young America for National Public Radio who introduces this classic from almost 35 years ago. Gotta love those 70’s fashions and hairstyles….
