Davis Media Access: Bee the Media

By
From page A4 | July 25, 2013 |

Livening up the dog days of summer this August, Davis Media Access and the Insect News Network bring you … bees.

Specifically, DMA is pleased to team up with creator and host E. Emmet Brady for the third annual Bee-a-Thon, an adventure that Brady says “takes intelligent humans everywhere on a deep dive into the Microcosm and the wonderful symphony of pollination.”

Brady hosts popular shows “Insect News Network” and “Expanding Science” on KDRT 95.7 FM, the community radio station managed by DMA.

On Aug. 21, via a multi-media extravaganza, Brady will open the window to the world of bees, in all the rich and inspired tradition of our co-evolution. The Bee-a-Thon 3 will offer one-of-a-kind insights into the people who advocate on their behalf as well.

Broadcast live on DCTV Channel 15 on Comcast Davis and on KDRT 95.7 FM in Davis or anywhere in the world on kdrt.org, and streamed live on dctv.davismedia.org, the day will conclude with a live remote from the Wednesday Farmer’s Market in Davis.

Brady says the Bee-a-Thon 3 will be an unprecedented collaboration of top bee experts in science, activism, conservation, arts and education. For DMA, part of our mission is to bring to light voices that go unheard. We’re happy to give a boost to our apian friends in this, their time of global crisis. (And in a community that’s home to the nation’s leading agricultural university, bee-themed inspiration and art abounds).

The Bee-a-Thon 3 will be on-air and online from noon to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 21. Tune in for nine minutes or nine hours — from your living room, family room or mobile devices — to chat live with the community and discover inspiring ways to take action. To find out more and RSVP, please email Brady at info@insectnewsnetwork.com. He’s taking applications for guests with an academic, scientific or creative take on our apian friends.

On a sad note, DMA is marking the passing of long-time friend and supporter Bill Smith, who succumbed to a respiratory illness last week.

Smith, who was also a KDVS DJ at one point, was deeply involved with DMA, having served by turns on our board, as a member of the KDRT Working Group that helped to launch the station, and later, a member of the KDRT Steering Committee. He was also a prolific producer.

Jeff Shaw, DMA’s production manager, recalls Smith, who was a friend to many of us at the station: “I’ve known Bill before I started working at Davis Media Access (formerly called DCTV). I had been to shows at his house, he had put out a record of some friends’ band, and we later worked on a short movie together.

“Bill and I later went to a radio barn-raising in Oroville and he supported the startup of KDRT-LPFM in whatever way he could, hosting meetings at his house and donating generously. Bill was the producer and instigator of the infamous ‘Stoopid Show,’ which ran over 50 episodes on DCTV and starred Armadillo’s own Paul Wilbur and Che, showing music videos and being stoopid. Bill was also the brainchild of recording a ridiculous barbecue anniversary episode of the ‘Stoopid Show,’ complete with kiddie pool, in our back parking lot. This inspired us to host the KDRT launch party in our parking lot, which in turn led to subsequent Backlot parties.

“Bill was always plotting something, had a healthy laugh, and was young at heart, despite his struggles and suffering. He will be dearly missed among our community.”
