Hi, I am Frank Moore.
I'm a producer on BTV. I do my own show, UNLIMITED POSSIBILITIES, as well
as "sponsor" a show by Mbanna Kantako (well-known as the father
of the microradio movement) and the popular show by the sex therapist/educator/personality
Dr. Susan Block. All three shows are politically/socially radical, aiming
to change society. My show is an Anarchist/ Avant-Garde/ Experimental/
Art/ Beat/ Cartoons/ Community/ Counter-Culture/ Alternatives/ Culture/
Dada/ Surrealism/ Erotica/ Essays/ Ethics/ Feminism/ Films/ Gay/ Humanism/
Humor/ Interview/ Lesbianism/ Libertarian/ Literature / Magic/ Music /
Performance / Philosophy/ Photography/ Poetry/ Political/ Psychology/
Satire/ Sex/ Spiritual variety show ... or a life on the edge show ...
for short. I sponsor Suzys show because it is political, educational,
and sexual, aiming to bring society into a more humane state of freedom.
In both of our shows, eroticism is just one of the elements in the mix.
During the many months that our shows have aired on BTV, I have heard
there has been a lot of feedback, both positive and negative. This is
healthy. This is what public access is all about . Public access is for
giving all voices in the community equal access without censorship. This
is especially true in Berkeley, the home of the free speech movement.
Censorship is NOT a community value in Berkeley! Some people dont
understand this concept. When they see something that offends/challenges/angers
them, they think they have the right to force the offending program out
of sight. The courageous BTV staff
it does take courage to run a
free speech channel of the community
knows that if unpopular views
can be forced out of sight, the free exchange of ideas, cultures, etc.
will not be possible. This is why censorship is illegal on community public
access stations. But when did that ever stop censors?! I have never met
a censor who thought/admitted what she was doing was censorship! When
Sen. Jesse Helms targeted me and 6 other performance artists as doing
"obscene," and "offensive" art [that is, radical art],
he said he was protecting minorities from our art!
