The Who Launch Their Own TV Station
The Whos Pete Townshend is taking the communicative powers of the internet
one step further than most artists. The legendary guitarist has turned the
web site www.petetownshend.co.uk into a virtual television station. The
program, dubbed Who TV, is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week using
Windows Media Player stream.
Planned features for Who TV include broadcasts of live performances,
rehearsals, and artist showcases. The site even promises that if The Who go
on tour again, the footage from the live shows may end up on the station.
There will also be a thing called Vox Box in which people can say whatever
they want to the camera it sounds much like City TVs Speakers Corner.
The webcast is to have free access for fans, with only big events coming
with a price tag of unknown amounts. Recent material thats popped up on Who
TV, which was launched this September, is The Who Live in Boston DVD
(released September 14th). This weekend promises the broadcast of movie made
by a Meher Baba follower, which will fill up two hours of Who TV.
