Touch of a Poet
Berkeley Public Access Cable TV Series
OPEN MIC: Joel Gerst
Producer's Notes: Touch of a Poet Cable TV Series (1996 - 1998) was a series of poetry readings video recorded at the University Art Museum in Berkeley. Each edited half hour television program included a featured reader and several open mic readers. Fifty-four of the over sixty programs recorded in the museum's basement were produced for Berkeley's Public Access Television Channel 25 (now Channel 28) and were broadcast Friday nights at eight o'clock.
