Each Friday Evening from 7:30 - 8:30pm (EST), Phil Gries, founder of Archival Television Audio, Inc., (ATA) will conduct a different live online seminar session for the public to participate interactively or if you desire to simply observe and not participate.

Participants will be engaged:

An opportunity to meet other collectors, archivists, and past ATA clients. We will always include a Question-and-Answer segment freely exploring the topic of Vintage Television's first 30 years of commercial broadcasting (1946-1975), the Golden and Silver Age…programs aired, viewed and listened to by millions of TV viewers, not so long ago, and now no longer existing in any broadcast form because of myopic thinking at the time…discarding Kinescopes and the erasure of master 2” Quad Master Tapes by Management, Executives, Producers and Television Stations as late as 1980 (NBC) to save space and to reuse a $600 one-hour video tape, saving money. No other art form including literature, music, radio, and post 1950 motion pictures have experienced such a large percentage of its oeuvre disappear, not available for future generations to experience.

All who attend a webinar session will receive a one year 25% discount from the date of first attendance toward all subsequent available purchases from the www.atvaudio.com website library inventory.

The cost to join a webinar, each session, is $18.00.
