I just happened to watch an episode of one of my favorite shows from growing up in the 70's: LAND OF THE LOST (you gotta love the METV channel for all these classic shows!).  I've always known about the banjo playing on the opening theme, but this time I noticed plenty of banjo playing in the background music during the body of the episode (I watched one called Tag Team).

Does anyone know who was the banjoist for the show?

If I'm not mistaken, virtually all LA based tv score work from that era was done by Larry, John Hickman, or Bill Knopf.

Special effects are obviously some of George Lucas's early works.
