The day ahead on WGXC 90.7-FM
12:05 a.m.: Radio Stew: Andrew Ingall Host Tom Roe is joined by Curator Andrew Ingall to preview the exhibition "Videofreex: The Art of Guerrilla Television," which will be on view at the Dorsky Museum of Arts at SUNY New Paltz February 7 - July 12, 2015. The exhibition surveys the history and mythology of the Videofreex, a collective of artists, storytellers, and activists who produced and disseminated alternative media across New York and other U.S. communities during the 1970s. They lived in Greene County in the early 1970s and produced Lanesville TV, perhaps the first pirate television station in the United States. The Videofreex exploited the new technology of portable video as an emerging medium for creative expression and as a democratic tool for disseminating independent points of view in a pre-digital age. By establishing the first pirate television station in the United States, the Videofreex created a base for media education and training, and an informal media art center hosting local and international visitors. From Jan. 31, 2015 "Saturday Afternoon Show."
