FOR FULL PERFORMANCE WITH AUDIO, PLEASE CONTACT WPA. Music Scene Hosts pose on steps, then all sit down together; David Steinberg names tonight's guests. They stand, turn, and hi ang MLS as David introduces "a very close friend of ours", special guest host Tommy Smothers. David introduces Tommy to rest of hosts, then Tommy asks, "Can I say something?" David: "Sure Tommy, just make sure it's not at all controversial." (this a reference to the Smothers Brothers TV show which had ongoing battles with the censors and eventually was cancelled for being too controversial - a fate which would also befall "Music Scene") But soon David himself is talking about the Vietnam Moratorium held the week before with millions of Americans taking part in mass protests. Then Smothers brings up "Operation Intercept" (an effort to crack down on illegal drugs coming into the USA from Mexico, which Smothers compares to trying to sweep up the Sahara with a broom).
