The Lyrics

What happens when you learn about an obscure television broadcast from 1951 that has no known surviving copy? You look in your attic.
Look for a lost kinescope in the attic with me,
Throw everything away...

Browsing in the evening, I learned of a strange scene,
Stranger than words can say...

A “Beat the Clock” show, 300 Scouts shown,
A woman, but there’s no known kinescope,

So! Look for a lost kinescope in the attic with me,
We’ll do that the whole day!

Did anyone find a kinescope of this broadcast while cleaning through their attic/basement this weekend?

I used to have a kinescope of this broadcast in my attic, but one day I tripped and the kinescope shattered across the floor. Then I woke up and realized it was a dream.
