I wish they'd bring it back.
29 June 2005 | by (Lexington, KY) – See all my reviews

I liked this show so much, I created a public access TV show of my own in Lexington which was inspired by this program. I titled my show OFF THE AIR. What was so cool about this program was you never knew what you were going to see when you tuned in each week. It could be a performance artist,a profile of a painter or poet, a dancing group or a film. One thing it never was was dull. It's too bad there's not a show like this on now that is nationally seen. With the networks preferring "reality" shows because they are cheaper to produce, it wouldn't take much for them to produce a show like this. There are many talented artists of all stripes who deserve to be seen. So we need a show like this now more than ever.
