Details Magazine - Saban Interview Tapes

Details Magazine - Saban Interview Tapes (7:36)

In the 1980s, the men's fashion magazine "Details" was something quite different - an East Village art/punk fashion monthly that was entirely in black and white (sometimes even the cover) and very devoted to covering the gossip of the downtown scene in New York City at the time.

The main downtown celebrity watcher was columnist Stephen Saban, walking a similar beat to that of the Village Voice's Michael Musto.

In their December/January 1989 issue, the magazine included a flexi-disc that was a montage of actual interview recordings from Saban and a page of commentary from Saban. The disc featured goofiness from celebrities who are still pretty well known, the off-the-record kind of moments that never show up in the actual stories but you encounter all the time as a reporter.
