Public Records this week launched Public Access, their digital 24 hour TV station that can be found at www.publicrecords.tv along with their online store.

Also planned is PRTV Unplugged which will kick off with an acoustic performance by Sinkane on Friday. Justin Miller will present his favorite music videos in his weekly series titled TV Scene. New School University will be doing a weekly series titled Salon: Deconstructed featuring performances by their most promising jazz students. Sound, Tracks will feature notable producers live scoring vintage experimental film including PR partner Francis Harris, John Roberts, and Pan American.
