Season 2-1998 Welcome Aboard Live started was our first season to go weekly. It really was a learning experience. Since we were not yet going live, the shows were pre-taped. But we continued to do the “live to tape” format so that anything that happened became part of the show. Doing this for so many shows made it an easy transition to actually go “live” for the first time in December 1998.
Season 1-1997 Welcome Aboard Live with Mike Pettersson began as a monthly show videotaped in a Brooklyn apartment. After 5 episodes, the next few shows were edited together from various ideas. Beginning in September, the show was videotaped at the newly opened BCAT studio in downtown Brooklyn.
