My friend just told me she got an email saying that the SNL that Queen were musical guests on will be on after the usual 11:30 SNL on Saturday night. I just checked the SNL website and it didn't say anything so I hope it's true!

I can't confirm or deny, but if Danny DeVito's hosting, it's the right one!

Well, according to the NBC schedule:

http://www.nbc.com/nbc/header/TV_Schedule/schedule_day-20040626.html

1:01 AM SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE (ALL NIGHT) 302 - CHEVY CHASE/QUEENoad 9/25/82

That would be the one.. funny they mention Chevy and not Danny though. Before someone asks what 'All Night' means, that's what NBC calls their overnight schedule.. it doesn't mean _this_ show will literally be on all night :-P

Anyway, it's great news because they show the complete original 90 minute episodes, unlike the recent Comedy Central reruns.

This is definitely something I have to remember to watch. I was only one when it debuted so I've never seen it before. I'm just lucky I don't have to work the next day.

I have to figure out my VCR. I'm so used to a DVD player by now that recording on a VCR has kind of escaped me. Since the TV that has the VCR is next to my parents' room, I have to keep it low or on mute. Is it okay to keep it on mute while recording? Will there be sound?

WHY CAN'T I REMEMBER THIS!

OMG, this is so funny! I love that some people are still confused about stuff like this :)

Erica, you have to understand that a VCR is self-contained.. if it's getting a signal from its tuner, or cable box, or however it works for you, then it's recording the audio and video, in color. Some people used to ask stuff like.. if I watch it on a black & white TV, will it record black & white.. hehe.

Your TV doesn't even need to be on. The TV is just a monitor. So yes, you can have the TV on mute and it won't affect it :)

Edit: There needs to be a tape in it though, and put the record speed to 'SP' for best quality and get a new tape.. you'll have plenty of extra time.

And when you set a timer, start it a minute earlier and give it a couple minutes extra at the end. Stuff is never exactly on time these days.

What a VCR was supposed to do? What is it supposed to be? I just cannot remember...

Digital recording has gotten so cheap now. You can get a free tivo-like recorder from your cable or satellite provider in most cases. I use Dish Network and love my recording box.. it holds 100 hours and is super-high quality.

And for permanent storage, Wal Mart now has DVD recorders as low as $224 in stores, even cheaper online. I had one briefly earlier this month to get some saved stuff cleaned off my satellite box.. a cheap Emerson model, but the name wasn't important to me cuz I was just borrowing it. The DVD-R discs play perfectly on my Pioneer player. Haven't tried a DVD + R yet.

They're getting so cheap I might actually buy one to keep someday instead of making 10 discs and then returning it for a made-up reason.

I have the performances downloaded but it's not AMAZING quality... and I'd like to see that whole episode, too.

One newspaper lists this SNL being on at 1:01 AM... DirecTV tells me 3 AM... whaaaat?

I took the one from my site directly from my SNL-DVD. It would disappoint me if you're talking about that version... :-(

Oh no no... it's something that I found that has both the CLTCL and UP performances right after each other. It looks as if someone recorded right up close to the TV because I could see a TV screen around it. Haha...

Well if you're in the Eastern zone, it would be 1 am (or 1:01, whatever NBC). I'm central so it's Midnight... further west it gets tricky. 1 am is actually 11 pm Pacific, but I think they tape-delay stuff to make it be equal to Eastern time, so it'll probably start at 1 am Pacific, but that'll be the delay and it'll actually be 3 am Eastern.

Don't even ask me about Mountain time. This shit is confusing enough. :-P

I wonder if they rechanneled the sound for the DVD set... being 1982, TV was still in mono in the states.
