I remember when we first got cable TV at our house. Not sure why, but we had MTV, but that was it as far as premium channels went, no HBO, Showtime, or Playboy, they were scrambled when you punched their channel button. We had the old Jerrold cable box, no remote push button. We did have a remote-controlled TV, but still had to get up and punch the button on the cable box to switch channels.
Now, I am not exactly sure how I learned this trick, but if you took a paperclip and stuck it down into the box next to certain buttons, the scrambled channels would come in clear. Although I did my fair share of sneaking in watching the Playboy Channel, today I want to talk about a show I was able to watch on Showtime, called “Bizarre” hosted by John Byner.
John had a show in the earlier 70’s called “John Byner Comedy Hour” which the character of Super Dave Osbourne, played by Bob Einstein, was first introduced. John late got the show “Bizarre” on Showtime, and Super Dave was back as well. John’s show was not politically correct, and often showed women with no top on, but was very funny.
Sorry, no nudity in this clip, but funny..
