Lucas and Will get the chance to talk to a Halifax YouTube legend, The Betamax King! His channel collects old commercials, station IDs, promos, and even full specials and local music albums from the 1980s - early 2000's, including Arthur and PBS Kids content. The guys talk to the King about how he got started and why media preservation is important to him, the process of taking footage from VHS and Betamax, some of the wild clips he's collected over the years, and just how much advertising and television has changed since then.
