This enticing sampler features moments, glimpses, and words from the wild and woolly PUBLIC ACCESS POETRY a cable TV series produced and directed by Poetry Project stalwarts Gary Lenhart, Greg Masters, David Herz and Daniel Krakauer with others, that ran in the late 70s, before anyone downtown had cable. Guaranteed to surprise and certain to bring a smile, BEST OF PUBLIC ACCESS POETRY includes appearances and readings from the likes of Ted Berrigan, Jim Brodey, Steve Carey, Tim Dlugos, Brad Gooch, Ted Greenwald, Bob Holman, Joanne Kyger, Jackson Mac Low, Bernadette Mayer, Eileen Myles, Alice Notley, Joel Oppenheimer, Peter Orlovsky, Maureen Owen, Ron Padgett, Simon Pettet, Rene Ricard, Tom Savage, Susie Timmons, Tony Towle, Lewis Warsh, and others.
General Admission $9.
Funding to preserve PUBLIC ACCESS POETRY was made possible through a Consulting Fund re-grant from the New York State Literary Presenters Technical Assistance Program (LitTAP). LitTAP is made possible with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA), a State agency, and administered through Just Buffalo Literary Center. Additional funding was made possible through the generosity of two anonymous donors. All videos transferred by The Standby Program at MercerMedia with consulting support from Anthology Film Archives.
