Denver Open Media, the non-profit organization that allows anyone to produce his own TV show and air it on public access, is celebrating its one-year anniversary and you're invited. It all starts with a telethon on Channel 57 from 2 to 6 p.m. Afterward, head to the studios, at 700 Kalamath Street, for the party proper. Enjoy food and drinks provided by local establishments. Check out performances by the Flobots, Cosmic Fire, Maris the Great, Buntport Theater and Podslam.org's spoken-word artists. Meet the people responsible for DOM's programs and check out examples of their work. If that piques your interest and you decide you want to try your own show, representatives will be on hand to give you the information you'll need to get started.
The party officially begins at 7 p.m. and will be televised live on Channel 57, broadcast via radio on KGNU 1390 AM and streamed at the DOM website. A $5 suggested donation is not only a bargain for the night's entertainment, but also goes to a good cause.
