And so while we await the completion of the doc, which lists Lili Ruane and Patrick McGrath as co-producers, the Ruane video vault has been opened for public viewing.

“Pleased to announce that Billy’s foresight in capturing shows on video will now be bearing fruit on the official Road to Ruane YouTube channel,” states a message on the Road To Ruane Facebook page, “where we will be uploading selections from Billy’s vast VHS archive spanning back over 2 and a half decades. Special thanks to Greg Dalton-Kay for taking on the task of archiving, cataloging, and uploading.”
