Episode #989: Talk About Prolific
First Broadcast: 5/20/24
This week, we salute the late Roger Corman, who died on May 9, 2024, at age 98, and was one of the most influential filmmakers who ever lived; not necessarily because of the films he directed himself (although there are certainly plenty that have merit), but more because so many of the people he mentored in his ultra-lean production methods went on to become the most talented artists in Hollywood. Peter Bogdanovich, James Cameron, Francis Ford Coppola, Joe Dante, Jonathan Demme, Peter Fonda, Ron Howard, Jack Nicholson, and Martin Scorsese are just a handful of the many "graduates" of the so-called "film school" that was the encouragig and free-flowing atmosphere of Corman's own studio system. Will any other director or producer's output ever become as prodigious or as multitudinous as Corman's was? Or was he sui generis? Or the last of his kind? Only time will tell, I guess, but at the moment his achievements aren't likely to matched any time soon.

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, which should get to me a lot faster than the snail mail.
