Gary Guthrie, a parttime Dj and a program director at a radio station in Louisville, KY posted an animated video on the internet about the song, “You Don’t Bring Me Flowers” by Barbra & Neil, making the record company, Barbra, Neil as the bad guys.

Here’s the story, eight radio stations spliced to two solo versions by Neil and Barbra together. Gary Guthrie, who just got divorced from his wife was playing Neil’s solo version, and then added Barbra’s solo version and made an unreleased version. He played it over the air and a got tremendous respond to it. So, he called Columbia records told them what he had done, the person on the other end, told to him “cest and dicest” (Note: I may have spelled it wrong). He called Columbia Records a second time and told the person on the other end what he had done. They said, will talk to Barbra & Neil about if they will record the song as a duet. Barbra and Neil got certain amount of $$$ of the sales of the 45 and airplay of the song. The song sold over 1,000,000+ copies. Columbia Records offered him only $500 for his idea. He ends up suing the Columbia Records/CBS, Inc. for $5,000,000 smackeroos. He lost the case, apparently. Then he put the video on the internet as noted in the paragraph noted above.

My question, does anybody still have that video? I would like to have it.
