Who would've thought in 1973 that cable TV would overtake over-the-air broascasting, people would be using smart cards for monetary transactions, teenage hackers would have the smarts to take over transmissions, there would be porno video channels available to viewers at any time of the day, Communism would fall, and chameleonic female TV talk show hosts would own the airwaves? Turns out Proctor & Bergman had all this figured out, and they lay it all out brilliantly in their first album as a two-man team, TV Or Not TV. Just remember: what was 5 is 2, what was 2 is 1, what was 1 is nothing. OK? This album also features two brilliant musical numbers, "Communist Love Song" and "Nazi Goring".
