Fun Video of a RF Place from 1982

Back in the early 80's I bought an LP called "Shake and Push" by  The Morells, a Roots Rock band from Springfield MO. The other day I was going thru some old LPs in the basement and came across it and played it for the first time in probably 20 years. Still holds up. Good Album.
 
Anyway, on the cover was a local burger place in Springfield called Red's. I began poking around the internet to see whatever became of it. It apparently closed in the mid 90's after the Red, the owner, died.   I stumbled upon a music video the Morells did back in 1982 which was filmed at Red's. The track is on thier LP. Red is the guy with the plaid shirt taking pictures in the video.
 
Enjoy:

    Looks like Red didn't spare the salt when he was assembling the burgers, but I don't think that worried the clientele too much.
