David Runyon Tapes Soon-to-Be Donated to UW Library

WYOU is donating the entire 800 video tape library of "Nothing To Hide," the late David Runyon's long-running television show, to University of Wisconsin Memorial Library here in Madison.

A reception marking the gift will be held from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Nov. 13, on the library's fourth floor. Speakers are scheduled to include U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin, state Rep. Spencer Black, Director of the UW Library System Ken Frazier, Director for LGBT Outreach Center Steve Starkey, and former WYOU Board Chairman Richard Russell.

WYOU volunteers and others will carry 25 boxes filled with the tapes on foot from the station, 609 E. Washington Ave., to the library at 728 State St. "Nothing To Hide" ran on WYOU from 1981 to 2001. At the time of Runyon's death in 2001, it was the longest-running gay and lesbian television show anywhere.
