I spoke to Alex Bennett, the producer of Al Goldstein’s notorious sex-themed magazine show Midnight Blue, who shared some never before seen photos taken on the show’s set in the 70s. I also uncovered the origin story of a man called ‘Eric in his Underwear’ which is as weird as it sounds. There’s a link in my bio so take a look.We made a magazine.
