PSAs are messages in the public interest disseminated by the media without charge, with the objective of raising awareness, changing public attitudes and behavior towards a social issue. While stations have never been mandated by the FCC to use a prescribed number of PSAs, they are required to prove they broadcast in the public interest and PSAs are one of the ways they meet that requirement as part of serving as a "public trustee"….join us as we do our part….

The first live taping of E.S.P. TV during our 4-month residency at the Museum of Art and Design in NYC!

E.S.P. TV is a nomadic showcase of primarily NYC-based experimental music, video art and performance tapes live and produced for Manhattan Neighborhood Network public television.Tapings of E.S.P. TV are in front of an audience with live green-screening, signal manipulation and analog video mixing. The entire night is recorded to VHS and edited into half hour episodes for airing on cable TV in New York City. After airing, the episodes are posted online at www.esptvnyc.com for later viewing.
