This is the blueprint for a revolution in the creation and distribution of media. We will discuss how and why to produce your own television using free tools, and explore how to use Community Television as an instrument for social change.
Alright, time to talk about a thing from 80-ish years ago.
I got a book in the mail yesterday that is just the weirdest little cultural artifact from the late 30s and I want to talk about it for a second, but before I do, I have to talk about George Burns and Gracie Allen.
We do a regular concert series at the Gilmer County Playhouse and the Ellijay Makerspace. We film them for New Ellijay Television, and you can watch them online. It’s the one year anniversary of our first show, and to celebrate we’re releasing a cassette tape of one of the sets from the first show through CassettesFor.Me. Watch the show here:
Just about ten years ago, I ran a record store and little record label in Kennesaw, GA. Back then, we wanted to do a monthly cassette club, with a new original album debuting every month, but we weren’t able to pull it off. Recently, we’ve revived the record label and we have a Vinyl LP out in the next few weeks., and the Venerable Doctor Deathray has brought the project back to life, it’s called Cassettes For Me and our first tape starts shipping Friday March 3rd!
