[From "Kovacs Corner" on YouTube.com] - Every true Kovacs fan has seen the "classic" version of The Nairobi Trio, which has been posted all over YT at various times. That rendition was recorded during his final television stint with the ABC Television Network during the late 1950's up to his death in 1962. This kinescope marks an earlier incarnation of the trio from Ernie's NBC special from 1957 "The Silent Show". Of course, they are still playing the syncopated rendition of Robert Maxwell's "Solfeggio". As if you didn't already know, the middle gorilla at the table is Ernie. Kovacs performed the sketch at different times with different scenarios. Most were live and went out over the air, never to be seen again. If physicists are correct, the inhabitants of the Sirius star system will get their opportunity to watch this "live" in a few years!
