  • Check out these fun highlight clips from public access’ past, chosen by our staff:

    Barry Richards Show: Matt Hanks is a big fan of this DC show ca. mid-60s - early-70s. The show, which took on two incarnations: ‘Barry Richards Rock & Soul’ and later ‘Turn On,’ features early performances from acts like Alice Cooper and Bob Seger System, as well as some wild collaborations like Fats Domino with the Byrds (including Clarence White), and Little Richard w/ obscure stoner/boogie band Jamul. Here’s a totally awesome trailer.

    Beyond Vaudeville: Mark Satlof remembers this bizarre, completely unpredictable meta-talk show that aired in NYC for a decade starting in 1987.  Host “Frank Hope” (Rich Brown) was joined by his lanky mute sidekick with a mop top, prone to violent physical outbursts. Hope was deadpan, reverent and surprisingly respectful to his guests, a parade of tricksters (Joey the Dancing Monkey), has been actors (Fred Willard) and odd NYC characters (legendary Underdog interpretive dancer Suzanne Muldowney) A watered down version appeared on MTV in the 90s, as “Oddville.” Here’s one classic Underdog clip.

    Ghoul A Go Go: Brooklyn-native Alison Smith watched this bizarre musical monster children’s show as a teen. Hosts Vlad (a vampire) and Creighton (a hunchback) do the mashed potato and the pony to garage band guests alongside a live audience of kids. Fred Schneider (The B-52s) and late Lux Interior (The Cramps) were vocal fans of the throw-back show whose guests include Hasil Adkins and Petty Booka. Check out this clip of twisting kids rocking out to The 5, 6, 7, 8s. New eps still air in Long Island and Queens!

    Mazeppa Pompazoidi: This mid-70s show from Tulsa is a staff favorite discovered on YouTube. The short-lived sketch show featured Gailard Sartain and a young Gary Busey as manic Teddy Jack Eddy. Check out their “Coach Chuck” skit.
