The nodding gnome is terrifying.

I hadn't heard of quadraphonic sound done that way, with the TV speaker being front channel, stereo FM as left and right, and their AM signal as rear, but it's a cool idea!
In the early days of radio, stereo tests were performed using two AM stations, then decades later, when many stations got FM mono transmitters, their AM would be one channel, the FM was the other.
Later, some FM stereo stations played quadraphonic recordings, and one AM stereo station did a test broadcast of quad material, KCJJ.
I liked that this was their 5th show and wonder how long it went on? I would have loved to be in on this, and it was pretty cutting edge at the time, with color TV and FM stereo being in a smaller percentage of homes in 1971.
Now I want to find the bands Adam Wind and Cold Trane!
What's really interesting about this was that KIRO was, at the time, owned by a Mormon firm from Salt Lake City, that had banned the playing of rock and roll in Utah from any of their stations. This was apparently pretty popular in Seattle, but it unfortunately only lasted about six episodes before the Morms found out and pulled the plug.

Great presentation and psychedelic effects, and featuring local rock bands, which people would have wanted to see then. Too bad the show was canned.
