Vintage 1985 Public Access Cable Show Fairhaven MA Add Video

In the first 3 years of Fairhaven's new public access channel, scores of programming was produced by local residents. From history to sports and entertainment, Cable 2 had it all. It also received multiple awards through the year of it's existence. VINTAGE FAIRHAVEN ARCHIVE TAPES DISCOVERED AFTER 32 YEARS The VHS tapes were lodged in between some old books in storage. Some were found to be well preserved after being sealed for over 3 decades. (The average playable life span of a VHS tape is about 25 years) After some adjustments and fine tuning ,we got them to play and are being restored to digital! If you lived in town in the 1980's, you will very likely see yourself or someone you knew in this footage. From FHS Sports, Music Entertainment, History, local schools in Fairhaven-Acushnet, town notables that are no longer with us, and never seen before bloopers - at the end of the show. This was a look back anniversary special for local Public Access Cable 2, the first 3 years, 1982-1985. There were several hours of footage recovered in satisfactory condition. *ML's Note: As program director - I made duplicate copies of shows back then and stored them separately from the Cable Station just in case. I forgot about them a long time ago. MLBaron Historic Archives
