Two Crazy Czech Music Finds

So there I was researching Czech and Slovak tunes (honestly) and I come across this wayout b/w music film from 1964 Czech TV. Wonderfully strange, a bit corny but clever all the same. Dancing girls, befuddled scientists in lab coats, a gramophone, pop stars … Note this is 17 years before MTV launched.

And I am definitely digging this Karel Krautgartner cat – clarinetist and saxophonist and director/arranger for the Prague TV dance orchestra in the early 60s. This is the only version of this tune I can actually listen to.
