Andy Warhol begins the Introduction to Exposures by saying, "I have Social Disease. I have to out every night." With those words, he begins his documenting of Society as it was being redefined in the 1970s. As always, Warhol is both an observer of the scene and part of the scene.
This copy of Andy Warhol's Exposures is inscribed to Barry Magarick, an institution in the worlds of Philadelphia radio and advertising. Magarick (1939-2022), a Philadelphia native, got his first exposure to TV work with a spot on the Horn and Hardart Children's Hour variety show. He graduated from Temple University (1961), where he was a program director at the campus radio station. Most known for his advertising work, where he put an intense creative energy to work creating ads that stuck in the viewer or listener's head, Magarick retained his affinity for radio. Host of jazz and folk programs on WHAT in the 1960s and an all-night call-in show, "Psychic World," on WCAU in the 1970s, Magarick was a member of the Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia Hall of Fame. No stranger to self-promotion, it is perfectly fitting that he would have a copy of Warhol's Exposures, and that it would be inscribed to him.
Signed and inscribed by author on half-title page; DJ is also signed.
