Who knows what programs will be cut in order to pay for the Mexican wall?  A democratic freedom-of-speech-grassroots-outfit like Public Access television could conceivably go on the chopping block. And in my opinion that would be a crying shame.

As a volunteer producer for years, I get choked up just thinking about it. What a wide-open and free canvas for local creativity! What an opportunity for community-building! Strut your stuff, Athens, Ohio!  Use of the equipment is free, as is use of the 3-camera studio. This is me on my former weekly show Kaleidoscope, before old age and decrease in word-finding skills curtailed me: (No, I think it’s a different one):

There goes my mind! Catch it!

There goes my mind! Catch it!

We have the capability for call-in-shows, skits, “green screen” backdrops, self-editing equipment. With sufficient volunteers we can “cover”  League of Women Voter debates, Final Friday art shows,  puppet skits, the Horse Pull and Demolition Derby at the Fair,  demonstrations and marches, wild life, political discussion shows, turtle feeling, the Homecoming Parade, interviews with elected officials, Junior Producers, the Humane Society, NAMI and Steampunk shows, poetry readings, plus YOUR OWN talking heads show, if that’s your thing!  All sows are scheduled several times a week (make that “shows!”)








About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 82 now.
