Best Against-all-odds Media


With rusty old equipment and virtually no budget, the troopers at UT's mini-station, KVR-TV, keep fighting against dead air. These kids are DIY-ing their way to a better education than UT could ever offer, and creating the kind of low-budg cool you used to find on ACTV. Sure, you can only pick up UHF channel 9 within a 20 block radius of UT, but if you're one of the lucky ones to catch shows like Cyclops Wheelbarrow -- featuring naked, drunk sorority girls and vomiting fraternity boys -- you know that the KVR crew is busy bringing new meaning to the First Amendment.
