You have been lucky enough to stumble across the Communications Workshop web site and Channel 12. We know ourselves as ETC 33, Everyone's Television Channel. Back in 1975 through 2001 we operated public access in the city of Fridley, Minnesota. But you can find out more about our history by clicking ABOUT ETC 33.
Our first channel was 12. We are rebuilding the channel with some of our original programs. The ETC librarian, The Unknown DJ, has been carefully storing all the programs from our many years of programming the public access channel in Fridley, Minnesota in his climate controlled basement. He literally has thousands of video tapes down there, safeguarding the history of public access programming.
Welcome to Channel 12, our new "channel" in cyber space. Pick a show and spend some time watching public access television.
The Workshop still lives by our original beliefs: freedom of speech, education, presenting ideas and having fun.
