Gene and Dave develop one-hour shows and broadcast them on public access TV.  Although TV shows are only broadcast in central Texas, they are also captioned and archived on www.thegeneanddaveshow.com.  Last year The Gene and Dave Show won an award based on the esthetics and accessibility of their web site which has been accessed by people in 41 different countries.
