This was the second Show Selector tape (the shows could be randomly cued by people in the audience from a "Show Selector" panel set up near the stage). The tape consists of a nice mix of golden-age Rock-afire material including all of the early Birthday songs
Show Selector Panel
- The Show Selector concept was a product of innovation funded by ShowBiz Pizza's research and development fund that was paid to CEI in the early years. Other products to come out of this fund were Uncle Klunk, and things that never saw completion such as second generation characters (Dook and Mitzi) and a Paul McCartney robot.

Another interesting mix of older songs including many that are personal favorites of mine, but being that this is a Show Selector tape I have to go with a lower rating. Plus it seems incomprehensible as to why the Birthday songs are included on this tape - later versions
of the Show Selector tapes included a seperate panel located away from the main panel which allowed management and employees to execute the Birthday and special shows. One of the most exciting aspects of visiting ShowBiz as a child was to see the Rock-afire perform a special show for you on your birthday. When a kid has to program their own Birthday show, or others can trigger off a Birthday show at any random time it kinda ruins the magic in my opinion.
