I'm Anarkyvist: WNED - Station I.D. & Sign-off - 1993

In early 2011 I felt it was time to start digitizing my VHS collection of over 200 tapes. To YouTube I went and signed up under the improbable and somewhat mysterious name of "Anarkyvist". The project got off to a good start, but after the initial volley, I seemed to lose interest while gaining other convenient distractions. It.'s time to go back to those VHS boxes and the conversion process, but for now I will take a look back here on this blog....

"From 1993. Buffalo PBS affiliate WNED's station/network logo with voice-over describing its technical and broadcast details."

For many denizens of southern Ontario (Canada), WNED, Buffalo's PBS affiliate, is a go-to television station. That Public Broadcasting Service station introduced me to Monty Python's Flying Circus (in 1974), a great public service as far as I'm concerned, and allowed me to drop in on the good Doctor even though I had more or less abandoned Doctor Who by the early 1980s.

As a fellow film-grad friend said to me years ago: "You want to donate money to them."
