Audio Interference 08: Tabloid

February 18, 2016

“Jean would take her income tax refund check and go to the track and bet on horses, and whatever money she made funded Tabloid.”
Tabloid was a collectively edited critical journal of mass culture and everyday life which emerged out of (and in opposition to) Stanford University in the late 1970s and 1980s. Interference Archive’s Lani Hanna and Vero Ordaz spoke with Jean Franco, Mary Louise Pratt, Maria Damon, Dana Polan, and Ed Cohen about the history of the journal.
Music: “Nights Tale,” “Summer’s Coming” and, “After The Week I’ve Had” by Dexter Britain; “Strange Wedding 60908” by Marcel. All music courtesy of the Free Music Archive.
