Peter, I think the show you're thinking of originated on CBC TV ... it
may have been rebroadcast on PBS. There is a great story I've heard
but not able to substantiate, but apparently Zoot Sims was a guest on
the show. After playing a few tunes together and talking for a while,
Oscar said, "So Zoot, what do you see in the future for the saxophone?"
Zoot sat staring at the battered, scarred Selmer on his lap for a
moment and replied, "Well, maybe a new lacquer job...."
