Staten Island Public Access TV
Pete Delaney strikes again!
Good News - After 19 years ( ! ) Staten Island Public Access TV finally switched from expensive professional video tapes to store-bought DVD-R's. Now I am able to do a variety of shows there similar to my live movie shows at the National Parks.
