> > Resultedly, I am e-mailing all of you, to see if
> you would be able to
> > donate just an hour per week to courier the tape
> of Democracy Now!
> > from CCTV to BNN. To reduce the time committment

> > the tape one day a week, and then if someone has a

> The person who has been acting as the tape courier
> for the past few months
> has written a detailed summary of the process of
> transporting the tapes so that you are
> aware of the time committment that would be
> necessary. It is as follows:
> > - At least five S-VHS tapes are needed which need
> to be replaced every three
> > months. (new tapes are needed now).
> > -Tapes are recorded at Cambridge Community
> Television (CCTV) at 675 Mass
> > Ave. (at Prospect Street), Cambridge, MA. The
> programming coordinator there
> > is Renato Rodriguez. Couriers will want to talk to
> him first to get
> > acquainted with the places the tapes are kept, but
> after that interns are
> > usually available to hand off the tapes.
> > -Tapes are then brought to Boston Neighborhood
> Network (BNN), Boston office,
> > in the Transportation Building downtown off
> Boylston Street by the Boston
> > Common (8 Park Plaza Suite 2240). BNN is on the
> second floor. There is a
> > security checkpoint at the top of the escalator
> where guests need to show a photo ID and get a pass
> > (even if you're only going in for a minute). Once
> past security, you need to
> > be buzzed in a the BNN office door. The
> programming director there is Tom
> > O'Gara. The programming office is immediately on
> the left once inside
> > the BNN office (big glass window). There is a
> drop-box in the door of that office to
> > drop the tapes off.
> > I believe this situation will only be temporary
> until BNN moves to their
> > new studio location, and hope that this will only
> be a temporary fix.
> PLEASE CONTACT ME (Nikki Smirl:
