Antony Rotunno returns this week and next as we dig into "The Rutles" (album, book, film, play and lawsuit) in tribute to Neil Innes. We start by discussing Rutland Weekend television, the actual musicians behind the "pre-Fab Four", and how Eric Idle came to put the pieces together in a project that has become beloved by the Beatles and Python communities despite not making a dent when originally released. We then start in on a screen-specific commentary, ending the first part just after the Rutles play Che Stadium.
