    My brother in law sent this to me just now and I had to share. A nice music history lesson, to be sure. What do you guys think?

    Neat. How many of us have a Starfleet uniform on now right under your coat?

    Interesting.

    I remember hearing a Chicago song once, and the intro sounded really familiar. I finally figured out the same notes were in the soundtrack for TMP! I'm sure it was inadvertent, this seems to happen a lot.

    Fun edutainment piece.

    I kept wondering why the host had an awkward looking dress shirt on, until he pulled it away at the end.

    I first saw this a week or two ago, but I only just noticed that they credit "Jonathan Fakes" as the trombone player. Nice touch. :)
