Episode #763: Sui Generis
First Broadcast: 4/24/17
First off, we salute the recently departed David Peel, who died on April 6, 2017, at the age of 73. He wasn't quite a frequent guest on Free New York, but we did run into him often in the neighborhood, and he was always willing to either pose or chat for the camera. He memorably offered his views and a song about the closing of CBGB in episode #427 of our program, and for that we'll always be grateful. His unique presence in the East Village will definitely be missed. On top of that, we wonder this week if the firing of Bill O'Reilly from Fox News, the very good showings of Jon Ossoff and James Thompson in special Congressional elections, and the record unpopularity of President Trump are all signs that bode well for a Democratic changeover in Congress in 2018? Well, I can dream, can't I?
So, what is Free New York anyway? The simple answer is that it's a
this neat little
public access TV show on
Manhattan Neighborhood Network which I co-produce with the
tremendous help of my camerawoman/editor/everything else,
Kim. The complicated answer
is that it's a project of mine to broadcast opinions and events which
don't always appear within "the mainstream media" (like The New York Times,
the major networks, local radio, etc.), and so far I think it's been working.
If you think I'm doing a good job--or not--and you feel
like sending me snail mail, the address is:
Free New York
P.O. Box 20945
Tompkins Square Station
New York, NY 10009
You can also email me at email@example.com, which should get to me a lot faster than the snail mail.
Check back later. I'm sure something will turn up.
