Rare Monty Python interview footage from 1975

The Sound of Young America, a podcast and radio show about things that are awesome, has obtained a rare in-studio interview Monty Python did in 1975 during one of their tours of America. The event was part of Festival 75, KERA's pledge week, and four of the Pythons are surrounded by fans and people in yellow hats. Jesse Thorn introduces this podcast, which is the show's first video offering. Unfortunately, the video cuts off after about fourteen minutes because an engineer taped over the reel-to-reel.

There's an interesting discussion towards the end where Terry Jones talks about the importance of non-commercial artistic development, which I'm trying to capture for use in a later sound-art piece.
