TV PARTY PREMIER EPISODE

In 1978 New York City was the scene of a movement called “punk” or “new wave” --an explosion of rebel music, underground art and new cinema. Glenn O’Brien was in the middle of it, writing his column, Glenn O’Brien’s BEAT, for Andy Warhol’s Interview Magazine. One night Glenn was a guest on a cable show “If I Can’t Dance You Can Keep Your Revolution” hosted by Yippie pot advocate Coca Crystal. The next day he was approached by friends and strangers alike who had caught the show. Glenn thought “Hmm, people are watching public access cable TV.” So he started his own show, Glenn O’Brien’s TV Party. His best pal Chris Stein, Blondie’s guitarist, became co-host and Walter Steding, Warhol’s painting assistant, became leader of the TV Party Orchestra. Regulars included Jean-Michel Basquiat, Fab Five Freddie, Debborah Harry, John Lurie and Tim Wright of DNA. TV Party was “the cocktail party that could become a political party.” The rest is TV history. This was the premier show.
