This showtape contained many of those classic songs we all love from Gee, Our 1st Album
. In fact, this showtape also includes a neat little commercial for that very album. It also features a somewhat strange promo asking customers to request the shows they want to hear (and also alluding to the upcoming Show Selector panel that was in development).
- It's curious to wonder if this showtape ran in the order of songs on the tape, or whether there was a Show Selector panel in use behinds the scenes - this show was actually supposed to follow the "Feelings Skit" with Billy Bob appologizing to Looney Bird for yelling at him. Apparently this particular crying skit received very bad reviews, and nothing like it was ever attempted again.
- This show is the song that plays at the begining of the SPP/CEI Promo video
. The interesting part is that the show actually contains Aaron Fechter's narration at the beginning.
Requests from the Audience
- In this short skit, Billy Bob asks customers to give a request to any "ShowBiz Pizza Cast Member" (yep, they called them that waaaay back in 1982). All in all though, the entire skit is basically a promo for the new Show Selector panel that was being developed, and was test-marketed
by ShowBiz in late 1982.

This was definetely an interesting showtape to be certain. There's an over abundance of short promos - and really, all the shows on this tape are fairly short (the commercials and promo spots are all shorter than two minutes long). The promotion of the Show Selector is particularly strange, considering it wasn't even available yet and somwhow customers were supposed to request shows from this very short set-list. I would imagine that stores carried around a physical list of available shows that could be played... I don't know, the idea to me just doesn't seem like it was that well executed. Regardless though, this business regarding the Show Selector panel is the real gem contained in this tape.
