Before The Cars would practically embody the cultural ethos of MTV in the 1980s, they were hitting the road to promote their debut self-titled album in 1978, which included a visit to the infamous El Mocambo Tavern in Toronto.

With their debut album heading towards platinum status, The Cars launched into a live tour comprising material that interestingly, would span their first three albums.

Klondike's retrospective homage to the band's El Mocambo appearance on their 1978 promotional tour lends a precious insight into the energy and spontaneity that made their formative years so intensely appealing.

Presenting the entire September 1978 broadcast originally aired later on 13th October 1978 on the King Biscuit Flower Hour radio show.
