Public access was a special place where a person with an idea could film that idea, and then feed it to the public. Rules existed, but were few and far between. There wasn't some guy in a suit consulting with focus groups on whether or not your show would resonate with audiences. Ratings didn't matter.

Public access was a holy place.

Sure, there were many times that what you saw was horrendously bad. A wannabe talk show host would fumble their way through prank phone calls coming in from bored teenagers. Those who couldn't get a record deal had a place to put their low budget music videos.

Anyone could be a star on public access.

ThePriceMaster was; and still is.
