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. My first effort is "JEAN SHEPHERD RADIO CLASSICS" an occasional series where I present some of my favorite WOR shows. First Up: "The Boarding House" from 1972. It will be on Monday September 5, 12 and 19 at 1PM on Ch. 34 (of course only available to Staten Islanders).
