Bald Ego Online

The late arts writer Glenn O'Brien and poet Max Blagg hosted the Bald Ego Online series from 2005 to 2006, as an extension of O'Brien's arts and literature magazine Bald Ego. Over the course of the year, O'Brien and Blagg hosted everything from interviews to surveys, featuring Duncan Hannah, Ron Padgett, Anna Akhmatova, Donald Barthelme, an Anthology of New York Poets, and more. 

After O'Brien passed away in 2017, Clocktower re-introduced the series in remembrance of the writer's life in the New York art scene. He will be sorely missed.   

Clocktower Radio was launched by MoMA/PS1 in 2004 as the Web's first art radio station. It has been independent since 2009 and is licensed to host content created under PS1 management. Programs produced prior to 2011 may refer to our earlier URLs and station IDs, including,, and Art International Radio.
