Episode 12: Caught on Tape
This episode first aired in October 2002 and it is by far one of our favorites. The show won a Silver Reel from the National Federation of Community Broadcasters – quite an honor. Please enjoy these priceless moments caught on tape – from childhood recordings to less than subtle phone messages. The B-Side crew is caught on tape whether we like it or not.

B-Side’s Tamara Keith was a child actress, Hollywood style. She was 6 months old when she got her first job modeling for a department store ad, and by the time she was 8, she’d been in more than 30 magazine ads and a TV commercial that aired during the Superbowl. There’s really no hiding that kind of exposure.
